Man these boxsets are really flying out of the gates as of late, eh? Like The xx boxsets, this is a bit of a redo of the release from the first time around as instrumentals of each of the nine songs are on the reverse side of each piece of vinyl except for one. The only one is “Var” and that comes with a special etching on the flip side instead as it’s already an instrumental. I’m sure the new album art will draw out conspiracy theorist lunatics with the triangle and eye denoting an alignment with the Illuminati, so let’s see how long it takes for a conspiracy piece or video to pop up that analyzes this cover… That aside, Kveikur has been received with a standing ovation so if you know any Sigur R贸s fans, if you are one yourself, or just know of any adventurous music listeners this could be a solid gift to a loved one (or yourself). 聽As it uses so much vinyl, it does come with a rather high price tag of $125 and this is in the pre-order stage. The fact that the boxset apparently comes with a signed insert from the band, and it is hand-signed as you can see in the short video below, is a notable selling point. Check out聽Kveikur below via the Spotify stream and see what you think of it. Cheers!
