Nearing the tinsel assault of the holiday season, we managed to evade impending Christmas vid overload, save for a Dickensian Sufjan Stevens trip. Some choice images this week abound, otherwise, from
To celebrate the Royal Concept 's show with Wolfgang and Atlas genius at U Street Music Hall this Saturday, October 27th, the band is taking over All Things Go today. Stay tuned to the site for posts written by the band members themselves on their favorite songs, remixes, and videos as of late. Sigur Ros has been one of our favorite bands ever since we were kids. There’s something cinematic about them and everything they do has this weird fairytaily feeling to it that sucks you in. We just discovered this video [...]
To me it's been a disappointing year of indie rock releases. Not that the releases themselves have been disappointing -- to the contrary, there are a number of really strong, really great albums below, some of the best output of these bands. But there haven't been enough new releases from my favorite bands to appease me so far in 2012. In fact, Sigur Ros is the only band in my top 30 favorite artists to release a new album so far this year (unless you count Spencer's latest incarnation, which you probably should, but that still [...]
Sigur Ros' new video for "Varou" features....you guessed it, a beautiful seemingly Icelandic landscape. The cut is literally one shot throughout the changing of seasons with a few people showing up throughout the rocks. The video seems very North of the Wall for you Game of Thrones fans. Though not far from Sigur Ros' usual style, the scene is [...]
Po minimalistickém klipu Ekki múkk (v překladu Ani muk (!)) připlouvá na vlnách poklidna další videoklip Sigur Rós z desky Valtari , singl Varúð . V islandštině to znamená Varování , které opravdu v klipu najdete. Postupně se na útesu objeví několik postaviček, které signalizují v morseovce zprávy poutníkům na moři. Někdo na internetu si s překladem z morseovky dal práci, takže teď víme, že nám sdělují následující zprávy: "Je jedno co říkám." "Jediná věc, na [...]
As part of their Mystery Film Experiment, Sigur Rós have released another video for another track from their recent album Valtari . While you might not learn to save someone's life in this video (like you do with the video for " Ég Anda ," "Varúð" is certainly a fitting piece, that's subtle, and almost disconcerting in a strange way. And this all from nothing happening other than a few small figure flashing lights at each other. Watch the Inga Birgisdóttir directed clip below, and check back later in the month (the 18th to be precise) for the third [...]
A Quick Word from the Author: Firstly, apoplogies for the absence of the Sabbath this past Thursday. I've been at a Family Reunion and my Brother's graduation, so I was staying as far away from work as possible -- and on that note, congrats to all the high school grads reading this. It's also worth noting this is not the only Indie Sabbath this week - you'll get your regular does on Thursday again. As I mentioned last week, EARMILK is currently in the gradual and delicate process of refining our features, aiming to [...]
Valtari is simply the most beautiful album to come out of Iceland in years. XL, 2012 9.4 / 10.0 After nearly 20 years and five full length albums, Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós has released their definitive album, possibly even the greatest to come from the country which [...]

Secondo appuntamento con " Valtari mystery film experiment ": la serie di dodici video girati da altrettanti registi che verranno pubblicati per ogni singola canzone del nuovo album dei Sigur Ros . La regia 'stavolta è di Inga Birgisdóttir che ha anche realizzato la copertina del disco (e aveva lavorato in precedenza sul video trailer e con il fratello Jonsi ). Lontanissime le atmosfere inquietanti del primo episodio: per "Varúð" panorama islandese con rocce, acqua, neve e delle figure in lontananza - delle silhouette appena - che comunicano in una sorta di codice Morse a [...]

I guess I should be blathering on about the beef between Erykah Badu and Wayne Coyne - but I'm presuming everybody's blogging about that right now and I was bored by the 200th tweet I'd read about it. So, instead, here's a rather beautiful and delightfully minimilistic new video from Sig ur Ros . The song's called Varuo: [...]

The last 4 posts have been hip-hop based (for obvious reasons I hesitate to call Die Antwoord hip-hop, but because someone technically raps on it and it meets the bare minimum qualifications as music, I guess I'll include it), and frankly that's too much. Let's all just chill out here for a minute. This is the new Sigur Rós video. No, I do not know what they are saying. No, I have no idea what a 'mystery film experiment' is. And I don't care.
