sigur ros: Hvarf-Heim
Sigur Ros is now streaming four songs from their upcoming Hvarf-Heim, the companion record to their upcoming film, Heima. Listen at their space. We're still working on setting up an HD screening of Heima here in Dallas, and it looks like that will happen sometime in early November. Some info on Hvarf-Heim, from Sigur Ros' blog:
"Hvarf-Heim...is more cousin than sister release. It has two titles because it is in effect two separate, but complementary, entities, with -- get this -- two front covers and a limited edition run of two discs. Open it one way and it's"Hvarf" ("disappeared" or "haven", a five track electric studio record comprising mainly unreleased rarities from Sigur Ros's back-pages, none of which is on Heima. Open it the other way and it's "Heim" ("home"), a six track acoustic record, comprising delicate new unplugged versions of some of Sigur Ros's best moments, which have never been performed before...Hvarf-Heim features three previously absolutely unreleased electric songs (Salka, Hljomalind and I Gaer) and is, anyway, wall-to-wall re-workings...
