"World Premiere Event! Public screenings on all seven continents. Join Sigur Rós fans from around the world for a unique program of short films." This year Icelandic band Sigur Rós released their sixth album Valtari . The band did something creative called "Valtari Film Experiment". Sigur Rós gave a dozen film makers the same budget and asked them to create whatever comes in to their head when they listen to songs from the band's forthcoming album. The idea is to abandon the usual approval process from Sigur Rós, and allow film [...]
Sandwiched somewhere in between the mellow acoustic acts and the elaborate stage shows of the dance acts this year are the best of the indie scenes hot-property live bands. While there are far too many to cram in here, and some that defy any notion of genre altogether, here are the five to get front and centre for over the weekend. Sigur Ros Returning somewhat to their roots with this years Valtari , Sigur Ros are rarely matched in the creation of lush, visceral audio dreamscapes. Their live shows match this other-worldly [...]

Photo source: Washed Out It's been two years since The xx released their debut album, xx , and now the British Mercury Music Prize winning band is on the verge of releasing their very much anticipated sophomore album, Coexist . The album hits shelves on September 11, but with the band in town this week, you can get a taste for what's to come by heading to Terminal 5 this Thursday night. Also in town this week are Washed Out (pictured above), [...]
"Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!" Wise words from a wise man, which are undoubtedly suitable in the case of the video for Sigur Rós ' "Fjögur Píanó" ( which was briefly mentioned the other day in passing , for what it's worth). For Shia LaBoeuf (who, not surprisingly, was actually in Dumb and Dumber 's regrettable sequel) the video is a chance to step outside of the cash crop he's stumbled onto with the Transformers franchise (though, from what I [...]
When I caught word of Sigur Rós releasing a video for one of my favorite tracks from their new album, Valtari , I got pretty excited to see what kind of visuals the band had attached to the beautiful, fragile piano piece. I was shocked to find an intensely avant-garde loaded with NSFW images and Shia LaBeouf playing a lead role. As ridiculous as concoction of elements, there's actually a strange beauty to this piece, and the unlikely beginning gets explained through the video's, uh, "storyline" as it progresses through an argument, [...]
Alma Har'el continue la série « valtari mystery film experiment » avec le clip de « Fjögur píanó » . Une très grosse et belle production avec Shia LeBoeuf et Denna Thomsen qui apparaissent en guests, totalement nus par moment. Mêlant sans cesse musique et amour, le groupe lance une bonne idée de concept avec cette série qui n'est sûrement pas terminée.
Sigur Rós 'Valtari' Mystery Film Experiment , jak už sám název napovídá, je filmový projekt navázaný na poslední desku Valtari islandské skupiny Sigur Rós vydané na konci května. Konceptem bylo oslovit dvanáct filmových režisérů a natočit 12 videoklipů ke skladbám alba Valtari. První z nich spatřil světlo světa pár dní před vydáním alba 25. května. Režie ke skladbě ég anda se ujal Ragnar Kjartansson . Ég anda znamená v překladu "Dýchám". A s dýcháním resp. nemožnosti dýcháním, dušením se, úzce souvisí děj filmu. Nebudu jej prozrazovat, abych vás nepřipravil o plný zážitek ze sledování. [...]

Icelandic experimentalists Sigur Rós have been creating beautiful but slightly bizarre videos to accompany their tracks for the Mystery Film Experiment series. Their latest release, directed by Alma Har'el , is soundtracked by quietly reflective instrumental 'Fjögur Píanó' and features Shia LaBeouf as the main protagonist. While it is definitely NSFW and very unusual, it creates an interesting montage that somehow fits with the track. Definitely one of Sigur Rós' most intriguing projects, we look forward to more of these strange but wonderful videos.
Terzo 'episodio' della serie “ Valtari mystery film experiment “: i dodici video girati da altrettanti registi che andranno a fare da 'commento' alla tracklist dell'ultimo album dei Sigur Ros . Il brano in questione è "Fjögur Píanó" e le riprese sono opera della videomaker israeliana Alma Har'el (già nota grazie ai suoi lavori per Beirut e Fanfarlo ). 'Stavolta il video farà discutere. Se infatti i precedenti si sono rivelati piuttosto in linea con le sonorità e le ambientazioni della band (nonostante la parentesi surreale di “ Ég Anda [...]

I've had a crush on Let's Buy Happiness ( facebook / twitter ) for a couple of years now with their rich, beautiful indie-pop, and their latest release, a reworking of Works Better On Paper , is no exception. Sarah Hall’s vocals enchant you as the songs comforts you from the isolation of our modern existence. The band have done a rather lovely video on a shoestring (above) to accompany the record, and we've got our hands on an exclusive remix from The Title Sequence which gives the whole [...]

Sigur Rós are delighted to reveal the third film in their Mystery Film Experiment series , which has seen a dozen filmmakers receiving the same modest budget to create whatever comes into their head when listening to songs from the band's new U.S. and UK top 10 album Valtari . The third film sees acclaimed director Alma Har'el producing a film to accompany the album's final track, "Fjögur Píanó." The stunning video stars Shia LaBeouf , and features "a man and [...]
Clip officiel de "Fjögur píanó" par Sigur Rós.
I guess you can show penis on YouTube if it's Shia LaBeouf penis. The plot of Sigur Ros 's latest video "Fjogur Piano" either revolves around some highly tantric sex or it's an artistic metaphor for the perils of a physiologically abusive relationship. There's cross-dressing, disturbing cutting, trippy lollipops and much more to behold. To set things right in the world, here's video of Ren Stevens naked . Sigur Ros's new album Valtari is out now. via Pigeons & Planes [...]
So, during my super-busy Monday, I apparently missed the brand new music video for Sigur Rós' " Fjögur píanó," which, as you may have heard, does feature a nude ... Shia LeBouf . What to make of this, I have no idea, but watch the video if you don't believe it.
Sigur Ros put out a NSFW new video for their song "Fjögur Píanó" as part of the Mystery Films Experiment where different directors will tackle all of the songs from Sigur Ros' new album. The video for "Vagou" was in Sigur Ros style, smooth and grandiose but this video features a naked Shia Labeouf, acrobatics, butterflies, and bondage. The video [...]
