We had been waiting on this one as they hadn’t specified what the limited release was going to include on the XL site & now they have. XL (and confirmed by rough trade) now show a limited 10″ with the 2xLP pre-order of the album. We’re not sure if this version of the whole LP is limited or just the 10″, but either way you’re going to want this.

Both the singles (see below ) have blown my mind apart. The intensity in “Brennisteinn” is hard to even categorize. Alternatively “Isjaki” follows more traditional Sigur Ros lines with giant sweeping soundscapes and perfected melodies.

Really there’s not much that needs to be said. It’s amazing music & 3 pieces of wax all for $21. That’s a helluva deal. Get one before they’re gone.
