Sigur Ros release new FACT mix, available to stream/download (playing the Mann 9/20)
Sigur Ros – whose latest full-length, Kveikur, is out now via XL – have delved into the world of DJing (under the name Triple Nipple), and just released a brand new mix for FACT Magazine. Just short of an hour long, the mix is available to both stream and download via FACT’s website here. For any fans of Sigur Ros’ previous work, be warned, this mix bears little resemblance to the rest of their backcatalogue. They said in a statement recently that “this is how Sigur Ros get down and unwind in the dressing room and on the tour bus after a show” and that “if you are expecting a mystique enhancing exercise of deep solipsism, look away now.” The band, currently on tour in support of Kveikur, will be coming to Philly this fall, for a show at the Mann on September 20th. Tickets are on sale now. More info can be found here, and listen to the Kveikur track “Ísjaki”, below.
