Forward to now, and it's not likely anyone could have predicted the kind of success Alabama Shakes would [...]

Photo by David Litcherman Sigur Ros announced recently their intentions of premiering any and all new music solely at live shows - “Coming to a show is the only way you’re going to experience this stuff outside crappy Youtube clips in the coming months." Luckily some of those videos have surfaced - live videos for “Kveikur,” “Yfirborð,” & “Hrafntinna." And while no live video can make up for actually being at a show, Jonsi might be a bit disappointed at the quality of all three. See “Yfirborð" below and check [...]
