full-length album of acoustic songs

Now this really looks interesting. I wonder if they mean new material or reworkings of previous stuff.

Absolutely super news about the releases coming from Sigur Rós this year. After seeing them in concert last year, they made me more of a fan than I was previously, even though I've always enjoyed them.

As far as Bjork, I do not own anything from her, and after seeing her on SNL this past week, I don't see that changing.

I'm curious for the new album, i like the first single from the album very much. Beautiful cliplike you can expect from Bjork.
A dutch blog site showed two clips from SNL show and i must agree with Indy that it was not very inpressive. I've seen hear live once durring the tour to promote hear first solo album and that was just great. Sometimes she is a bit like Sylvian.....just doing what see realy like and don't making concession to what people want to hear.

Well you are making a mistake there. Granted, her last album was a bit off, but at least try her Greatest Hits package. She is one of those unique talents out there, but I understand how some folks don't "get her".

I'm very curious how a accoustic version for example this song will work out.

Sigur Ros to release concert movie
They tell NME.COM there's a 'new' album as well
30.Jul.07 11:48am
Sigur Ros are to release a concert film shot in their native Iceland last summer.

'Heima', out on November 5, was filmed in various locations, and features some of the band's biggest and smallest shows of their career.

Drummer Orri Páll Dýrason told NME.COM: "It was good to film it in our home country, sometimes we were playing these big show and then we were playing in those really small fields, which was beautiful.

"It was fun doing those, shows, especially in front of our friends. Really nice."

A trailer for the film can be seen here(windows) or here(quick time).

On the same day a compilation album, titled 'Hvarf-Heim', will also be released. Split into two sections, the first, 'Hvarf', features three unreleased tracks from the band's works, and a fourth, 'Von', which is a radically reworked track from the band's first album.

Dýrason said: "We are having a clear out, really! One of the songs even dates back to 1994!

"We picked the ones we really like. It's not like a normal album. There are a lot of good songs on there, but they didn't fit when it came to putting the albums together."

The tracklisting is:

'Salka'
'Hljomalind'
'I Gaer'
'Von'

'Heim' is made up of six acoustic versions of songs taken from Sigur Ros' four studio albums to date.

The tracklisting is:

'Samskeyti'
'Staralfur'
'Vaka'
'Agaetis Byrjun'
'Heysatan'
'Von'


Trailer can be watch also below :P

SIGUR RÓS:
The Sigur Rós website seems to have disappeared in preparation for a new album make-over, however, to keep you happy in the meantime there is a great outtake from the Heima DVDavailable for download.
