Sigur Rós - Inni

From the special edition of the live Sigur Rós DVD/album INNI comes “Lúppulagið,” a previously unreleased studio affair that has that the piano-plinked serenity that is so quintessentially this band in their more peaceful moments. Jónsi is cast into chirping and cooing samples that are at a low volume, and never steps beyond that role, so just know that if you cry (and you might!), it will be because of the instrumental aura of fog-at-dawn sublimity rather than some heart-shattering falsetto. Either way, does the trick:

INNI is out 11/7 in Iceland, 11/15 in the US. You can pre-order it at the band’s site. There’s also “Klippa,” if you are at work assembling the INNI puzzle.

  1. Nothing is as moving as a Sigur Ros song. I want a new studio album…

  2. i just want to see them live once!

  3. Saw them in Portland at the Arlene Schnitzer concert hall. Best show I have ever seen! Speachless and in tears at points!

  4. Stereogum, if you make a Sigur Ros show happen I will surrender most of my worldly goods to you in exchange (only most of em because you wont want the rest)
