New Sigur Ros in Q1 2012
2011-11-09 by Ryan Fitz | 88 Comments

According to a Wall Street Journal article, Sigur Ros is planning to release a new album sometime in spring, at an undisclosed date. According to the article, the music is described as "introverted" as well as "floaty and minimalistic" and promises to be "exceptional as the best in the band's catalogue" The article can be found below.

For all those who were disappointed that Inni was only a concert film, consider this your
excuse to get belligerently drunk.

Wonder if minimalistic means they will go the Mark Hollis route. That would be cool if they did.

"promises to be 'exceptional as the best in the band's catalogue'"

I'm fucking sick of bands making this promise, which inevitably proves to be false (and may have something to do with putting an unreleased album on a pedestal).

This is tits though Sigur Ros has been steadily declining since ( ) in my opinion - I still want to see Inni though, those Icelanders now how to put together a great film. And why people always gotta compare Sigur Ros and GY!BE? Post-Rock is such a broad genre and they really don't hold many similarities in their sound.

yeah GY!BE and Sigur Ros are at complete opposite ends of the post-rock spectrum. hardly comparable.

People often compare GY!BE and Sigur Ros because they're probably the two best post-rock groups. No other reason really.

Even if a new Godspeed record is just the sounds of Efrim shitting in a tin can, it will still be a 5/5.
