Review: It's either the most timely re-issue of 2020 or the most inappropriate. Cast your mind back to when everyone's (or at least most people's) favourite Icelandic woodland sprite power-chill-pop oddities released Takk... Back in 2005 it was a symphony of celebratory, life-affirming walls of sound, the ideal score to an Attenborough documentary. Now it feels a little a painfully poignant and emotionally charged sonic memory of a lost world. Fear not, though, like this album, the good days will return again.

In the meantime kick back and remind yourself how good this record is. Not quite on a par with the preceding LP, ( ), which took this unique troupe from obscurity to global stardom by way of soft yet subtly gargantuan harmonious arrangements, here the songwriting and craft is more traditional, and certainly better suited to platforms like radio. Nevertheless, the tracks are no less beguiling, bewitching or intoxicating.

Review: Icelandic post-rockers Sigur Ros picked up hefty amount of critical acclaim for their third full-length album () in 2002. It was very much a record of two halves, with the first section of tracks offering up lighter and more optimistic pieces, and the second taking a darker, bleaker, more melancholic path. The vocals are all sung in a language of made up gibberish called 'Hopelandic' that lends the already intriguing music and air of extra enigma. As is often the case with this band, the tracks often head to huge climaxes that are as thrilling now, 18 years after first being recorded, as they ever were.

  1. With Arms & Legs Moving/The Tell Tales (19:25)
  2. They Glow In Light/Like Coloured Glass (23:25)
Review: With various snippets spliced together by Sigur Ros and Berlin and Reykjavik-based artist Kjartan Holm, this endeavour has resulted in a one-off soundtrack for a new Taiwanese dance piece titled "22- Lunar Halo" by choreographer and artistic director Cheng Tsung-lung. This exclusive Record Store Day release is made up of two epics that are both near 20 minutes long, in the form of "With Arms & Legs Moving/The Tell Tales" and "They Glow In Light/Like Coloured Glass". The former relies heavily on subtlety, with soundscapes that lull you in, and an atmosphere throughout that builds to the point of some discomfort, yet all seems to be resolved with a piano driven conclusion on the second track. This is one of two modern dance collaborations from the Icelandic post-rock legends for this year's Record Store Day, each building on the band's music, both new and existing, to create brand new works.

Post Rock/Experimental
  1. The Hungry Ghosts/We Live In An Old Chaos Of The Sun (20:34)
  2. The Silence Of Animals/The Truth Is, It Wanted To Cave In (22:50)
Review: Set as a soundtrack to a series of choreographed performances from the Iceland Dance Company, "Variations On Darkness" may arguably act as a counterpart to separate Record Store Day exclusive "22 Lunar Halo". This release is a culmination of various moments of Sigur Ros' career awashed with discordant, penetrating soundscapes across the two epics, "The Hungry Ghosts/We Live In An Old Chaos Of The Sun" and "The Silence Of Animals/The Truth Is, It Wanted To Cave In". Our pick is the latter which is something of an intoxicating build-up, brought together by haphazard, glitchy samples that may even cross the IDM territory, before concluding with a suitably grandiose ending to an epic trip. A tough listen, for sure, but all the more rewarding.

Review: It should come as no surprise that the latest from Icelandic musical fantasists Sigur Ros was originally composed in either the 14th or 15th Century, and is written in the Edda tradition, a term used to describe to manuscripts that together make up the main sources of Norse mythology and Skaldic poetry. After all, this is a band that have been singing in their own imagined tongue since before most people cottoned on to them.

It's certainly the group's most gothic effort to date, an orchestral epic that also features the artists and composers Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, Steindor Andersen and Maria Huld Markan Sigfusdottir, whose collective CV includes pioneering musical composition with computers and Rimur chanting. Their combined efforts feel steeped such timeless atmosphere your peripheral vision might as well be catching torchlights flickering off solid stone walls. Another work of extraordinary beauty, then.
