New: Sigur Rós - Gobbledigook

So many great releases this year, but this one release from Icelandic band phenom, Sigur Rós might just top them all; their forthcoming album, með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (with a buzz in our ears, we played endlessly) is slated to come out this 23rd of June. As always, here’s a free preview of what to expect from that new record:

|mp3| Sigur Rós – Gobbledigook

Have always loved the music of Sigur Rós, largely due to its wondrous soundscapes and spacious, pristine melodies. ‘Gobbledigook’ on the other hand, marks a departure from the group’s already stupendous repertoire; gone was all the delicate, sparse expanses, and in place of that is a more vigorous and livelier rhythm section, somewhat emanating an ethnic, tribal effect. But the song is still every bit a Sigur Rós song, proving that this band have yet to disappoint.
