New album from Sigur Rós, free preview available now
Sigur Rós has a new release ready for the world and you can now stream their entire new album entitled, Kveikur, before the official release date on June 18, 2013. If like me, you found the last record lovely but lacking in energy, I think you will like the balance they achieve on this one. Kveikur is heavier on percussion, more varied in sonic production and yet still incorporates many familiar elements of their music -- the mysterious Icelandic lyrics, Jonsi's layered vocal parts, soaring and uplifting melodies. I'm looking forward to having Kveikur asthe soundtrack to this summer.
