Sigur Ros - 4 new LP's limited to 100 each ... just shoot me now ...

Recommended Posts

It says here that Sigur Ros is releasing four new LP's of unreleased material.   Each is limited to 100 "colour-coded" pieces each, and is only available at their upcoming December festival in Iceland.  (Unsold copies will be available online.  Good luck with that ...)

Per the link above, only two of these are actual Sigur Ros albums, the others being a Jonsi solo EP and an Alex Sommers LP (obvious Sigur Ros peripherals, of course).

The two actual Sigur Ros LPs sound like they'd be super esoteric.

If I can get them, I'll get them. Otherwise, no biggie to let these go.

Would rather have a new studio album, although I expect that to be a radical departure given Congleton's rumored involvement as a producer.

A run of 100 each, sounds about right for what appears to be a bunch of meh...

All Animals would be nice with a larger release, but I have no idea is the Somers LP is decent and the two Ros inspired LPs feel more like bonus discs.

I'm just happy they choose these side pieces for limited pressings and not something substantial like the new album.

It sounds like these will get some kind of larger (probably still really limited) release online after the new year.  According to the email, the 100x copies of each of the four titles comes in a handmade sleeve, but apparently there will be a second press in printed sleeves. Per the email:

 

"a limited run of the above titles in printed sleeves will also be available through the band’s webstore in the new year."

Up until now the only releases I was missing were the Von remix ep and the Oxfam comp. Fuck.

 

I mostly wanted the Route One LP but I don't see this ever happening. The Riceboy Sleeps would have been cool too. I seems like all of my favorite bands eventually do this to me.

 

 

They hate you
