Sigur Rós Singer’s New Band

Sigur Rós, purveyors of glacial dreamscapes, achieved a measure of daytime airplay and crossover success when the BBC used one of their tracks as the theme to a set of popular animal documentaries; this despite having names most English speakers can’t pronounce without help. Well, Sigur Rós singer Jón Þór Birgisson is to release a new album with another band (actually just with another chap called Alex Somers) called Riceboy Sleeps. The project has mixed art and music, staging exhibitions, for several years and now hits as a widely available CD. And the monolingual breathe a sigh of relief: most of the track titles are in English!
