By Fred Mills
Awhile back we told you about Sigur Ros offshoot Riceboy
Sleeps, a new art/music project from Jon Thor Birgisson and his partner Alex
Somers. Now we hear, thanks to Pitchfork, that a free MP3 download of the track
“Boy 1904” from the forthcoming self-titled album (due July 21 on XL
Recordings) has been made available at the Riceboy Sleeps website, so check it
out, along with a video clip, below.
Meanwhile, over in Sigur Ros territory, don’t forget about
that Spinner Session that recently premiered – recorded last September and
supporting then-new Flood-produced album Med sud i eyrum vid spilum
endalaust, the band played four songs: “Vid Spilum
Endalaust”, “Fljotavik”, “Inni Mer Syngur
Vitleysingur”, and “Illgresi”.
