Sigur Ros are one of the strangest bands from one of the strangest countries. The Icelandic minimalists made all the pre-internet hipsters go crazy in 2002 with the album named for punctuation "()". Valtari is the sixth album from the band released at the end of May (and topped Easy Street's sales list last week!).
They unveiled the work as part of a project to have film makers take a modest budget (~$10k) and make accompaniment videos. Director Alma Har'el (Bombay Beach - winner of "Best Documentary Feature" at the Tribeca Film Festival) brought in a very naked pair of actors in this drug abuse themed, and lurkingly slow moving clip. Get ready for a hairy faced Shia Labeouf and pale/naked skinned Denna Thomsen and also, don't let the boss catch you watching this NSFW clip:
Bryce adamantly insists that I remind everyone of how he saw Shia at Coachella sitting by himself at a table with his shirt off looking "like a giant douchebag". Ok then.
