Viddy me this! Sigur Rós - 'Gobbledigook'.

I haven't got my advanced copy yet but things are looking mighty swell from here.

Presenting the new Sigur Rós video for 'Gobbledigook'. Yeah sure the song title feels slightly archaic against the poster boys of modern post-rock/experimental rock but who are we to say "ixnay" to old-fashioned nudists?

The cover for Sigur Rós - Gobbledigook.

Unlike MTV and Channel [V], who consistently tell you to check out some "really cool videos", I suggest that you ask for parental guidance when viewing this video. The band has seemingly departed from their usual guise of mild-mannered Scandinavian art rockers - here they sound like they're trying to really have fun. With this reintroduction and a new direction, could we still be expecting album of the year in the cards? Get it in quicktime format by streaming from their website or through a whoppin' 49MB download here.

And here are some snapshots to get you started (NSFW, mouseover to see actual image):

Don't forget! Their new album 'Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust' ('With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly') produced by one-man show Trent Reznor and good ol' Flood will be out this late June 2008. It also adorns a nice album cover with nudists on it. I shall not try to outsmart you. More details available at wikipedia. Looking at the new album cover, one cannot help but wonder, "...lads, will there be an alternate cover for the Asian market?"

Thanks to GvsBear for the heads up!
