I must admit, How To Train Your Dragon was one adorable animated film. The sequel is about to see the light of day, and it has a great soundtrack, to boot. Jónsi from Sigur Rós contributed a soaring, cinematic tune to it. Today, we get to listen to Where No One Goes. The enchanting, upbeat song is a great match for the magical, dragon laden film.

Rhode Island folk act Dead Vessel is scheduled to release a new album, Island Intervals, on February 25 via Sub Pop. On it is this breathtakingly lovely and delicate song Ilsa Drown, which features none other than Jónsi of Sigur Rós. He joins in on the vocals with Dead Vessel on the enchanting track. Can anything with Jónsi NOT be beautiful and affecting?

Cyril Hahn remixed Sigur Rós

October 17, 2013

I wouldn’t have thought of matching Swiss (based in Canada) producer Cyril Hahn with Sigur Rós if I hadn’t listened to this incredible official remix of Rafstraumur. But now, it all makes perfect sense. It’s a transcendental rendition that bursts at the seams with gorgeous complexity and endless layers. The luminous remix literally flies, high up into the sky. If you thought Sigur Rós’ genius compositions were really something, this gives that all a whole new light. I’m nowhere closer to being able to pronounce the title of a Sigur Rós song, or to understanding Jónsi’s vocals, but none of that matters. This is pure bliss.

OFFICIAL VID: Sigur Rós – Kveikur (w/ live show visuals)

June 7, 2013

Everyone’s favorite post-rock band from Iceland released visuals for their pounding, energy filled Kveikur which marked a fork in the path of their sound, as was stated when they first previewed the song some months ago. Back then, I, as well as many others (I’m guessing), were thrown off by the sudden change, since the boys were still touring for and in the midst of soft, gentle, beautiful Valtari. But after that initial shock factor, I came to realize how brilliant Kveikur is and it may actually be one of my favorite Sigur Rós tracks now. The intense, frenzied song is the title track for their coming album out on June 18 via XL. It’s gonna be an awesome album and something very fresh and unexpected. I’m excited!

LYRIC VIDEO: Sigur Rós – Ísjaki

Not too long ago, Iceland post rockers Sigur Rós announced they were already working on a new album, Kveikur, out on June 18 off XL Records. This was a surprise, since they were still on the road for Valtari! They announced the new album with a short tease that sounded far different from anything else we’ve heard from the outfit. Today, they’ve released a lyric video for new song Ísjaki. It’s not as “aggressive” as I thought it’d be, but it’s certainly not the slow crawling, super ambient music we tend to hear from them. This one is far more jangly and upbeat, though still cinematic and absolutely beautiful. It’s an other worldly song. As always, Sigur Rós expresses human emotion by taking us on an epic journey to another world.
