Sigur Ros

You’d think we’d stay on top of these things: Sigur Ros, the superhip ambient slow-core band from Iceland, has a new record coming out this week, and we never got our secret-handshake-nudge-nudge-wink-wink advance copy, the better to let you know whether you should buy it when it becomes available to the masses. But when it comes to Sigur Ros, well, we figure we have time. Lots and lots of time. We still listen to the beautiful and fragile ( ), and that came out three years ago. Agaetis Byrjun, which sounds a bit like Cowboy Junkies spouting a made-up language on helium in an empty swimming pool with Erik Satie–yes, it’s that beautiful–is six years old, and it’s still in top rotation on our iTunes. Detect a pattern? It may be three years before they pass through town again–hint hint. 612-339-7007;
