WAIT WHAT

I haven't heard about this. I'm going to go scream like a freshman girl at a Justin Timberlake concert.

When does it come out? Very excited. I'm really digging this double EP Caspian was kind enough to share in the meantime. The acoustic stuff is really great- as my Mum said: "this is really beautiful music". Also very pumped for Heima which looks great.

The "double EP" is what is being referred to, I'm rather sure.

No Dark Flame, the EP is just accompanying the movie, i'm fairly sure they have a new full LP coming out?

They do have a new LP coming out but I don't think there's a date to it yet, and there's hardly any details about it. It won't be out for a while.

The 'double EP' is pretty damn good, but it's definitely not their best work. The acoustic stuff is nice (and the production is amazing) but it's not very exciting. I'm loving the electric side though, especcially 'I Gaer' and 'Hjlomalid' or whatever it's called.

I'm sure they do, but there's no real information at all about it at the moment, which is why I'm pretty sure this thread is for Hvarf-Heim.  If we were to create a thread for every band who we're pretty sure has a new album eventually coming out, that'd be pretty silly, wouldn't it?

The new LP is coming out sometime...probably late '08. That's the word from reliable sources. Don't expect it anytime in the near future in any case. The double EP and DVD release are definitely things to look forward to, however. The movie is absurdly beautiful and exceptionally well done and the EP is terrific. Acoustic Sigur Ros is wonderful (based on my live experience with it anyway) and the new songs, two of which can be heard in the movie (one in the trailer) are really great as well. Be excited about that and reserve your excitement for an actual LP for some months yet.

I'm posting a pre-emptive "fuck yeah this is awesome!" re: the new album so in a year's time I can link back to this thread and be like, see, totally called it.

The DVD is released on November 20th. Whatever you do, do NOT buy the regular edition of this. The special edition is well worth the extra ten dollars or so, containing one of the best bonus discs I've heard of. It has every song from the film, live, in full plus a bunch of mini-documentaries, totaling something like 4 hours of extra footage. Just do it (it's actually pretty cheap on buy.com. I got it there with Hvarf-Heim).

Hah, I wish. That would mean I would know them. I'm actually just a gratuitous fan-boy who was lucky enough to see the movie at its premier so I know it's worth picking up the extra stuff. And to prove it's not just me, here are some review snippets of the movie:
 
   *  q ***** “as moving as it is magical… sigur rós have re-invented the rock film“
    * empire **** “so beautiful it’s hypnotic… one of the most beautiful audiovisual experiences of the year“
    * total film ***** “heartfelt and moving“
    * the guardian **** “i was utterly captivated by this documentary…“
    * the times **** “delivers a sensual balm of music, space and place that is hypnotic.“
    * time out **** “provides an atypically intense and enormously pleasurable experience.“
    * los angeles times “more art-house movie than concert rockumentary.“
    * the irish times “sigur rós are arguably the best band in the world today.“

See!

www.sigur-ros.co.uk for all the news you might need.

I'm terribly excited for all their new releases. I just wish they would premiere the movie in Chicago - there are plenty of fine movie theatres and art film houses that could be a venue.

The acoustic version of Staralfur may in fact be better than the original. Did not think it was possible, but I guess I'm wrong.

Also, I gaer is like their most rocking song ever. Even more so than the last bit of Danarfregnir og Jadarfarir, or Glosoli.

Jesus, I didn't know there was such a thing as "more powerful than the ending to Glósóli."

The thing about this band that I love the most is that they manage to keep their sound consistent, with their ambient sounds and contrasting hi-fi and lo-fi recording techniques, and they can still reinvent themselves as a band with each album and have it not suck.

I think I'm going to really enjoy this album.

The ending of Danarfregnir og Jadarfarir is GREAT. Not as long as Glosoli, but it sounds fucking evil.

I was going to praise the new Staralfur as well. Admittedly, I thought the old version definitely overstepped the "beautiful/easy listening" line, but this is one is really good. JOnsi's voice is amazing.
