With A Buzz In Our Ears

With the big move to Vancouver in two weeks time, posts are a little scattered of late so bear with me and I will get to work on all the photos and gig reviews that are building up.

A quick mention of some news that I am excited about and want to share with you all is the new Sigur Rós album. The Icelandic quartet return with their fifth LP "með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust" (Try saying that after a few ciders) or the easier English translation being "with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly" on June 23rd.
Apparently it is also the first album in the band's career to be made outside of Iceland taking them to studios in New York, London and Havana. I doubt there will be any salsa influences seeping through, but I am highly certain there will be a continuation of epic, soaring strings and dreamy vocals on their latest addition. My heart flutters at the thought of it.

The album will be available to pre-order from June 2nd and a live stream of the album will be available on june 9th for those who have pre-ordered. Sigur Ros will also be playing a handful of festivals around UK and Europe in the summer so stay on the look out.

To keep your ears sane until then, you can download the first track of the new album from the website.
