They also offered up “Illgresi” and an extremely gorgeous “Fljotavik,” but the two Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust tracks with longer titles are more lively fare for a Friday afternoon. Yes, you’ve likely already seen “Inní mér syngur vitleysingur” live before, but not with the four guys alone in a room. (Plus, as we’ve already made clear on this site, these guys are a a good live band — and the double piano playing’s compelling to watch up close.) And it’s good to see “Við Spilum Endalaust” in crisper, less pixelated form … even if Spinner has it labeled “Fljotavik” by mistake.
“Inní Mér Syngur Vitleysingur”
“Við Spilum Endalaust”
If you want to feel a little sadder, head to Spinner for the other two takes and a brief interview. Also, they’ve lowered the price of the Med sud í eyrum vid spilum endalaust Deluxe Edition to $79.98, in case you couldn’t afford it previously. Finally, in other Sigur Rós news, Jónsi and his partner (and regular SR graphic designer) Alex Somers’ Riceboy Sleeps project has a self-titled album out 7/21 via XL. You might remember their “Happiness” from Dark Was The Night.
