Sigur Rós streams new album on official site

Head on over to the Sigur Rós official site to hear the entire new album, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.

First impressions:

  • Quite a bit of tribal percussion.
  • The first few tracks sound like the band really cut loose. There’s actually … tempo.
  • Ah, the quieter tracks and the grand orchestrations come later.
  • The encoding of the stream is pretty sucky, but there seems to be a lot less fancy studio work. I think the word I want to use is "organic". This album won’t be mistaken for Takk … or Two Hot Dogs Facing Each Other (ne, ().)

The new album hits stores on June 24, which coincidentally is when enigmatics by Eponymous 4 will also be released. By the way, enigmatics, like Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust, is available for pre-order.
