Sigur Rós'Kveikur' (album stream)
The Icelandic Simpsons stars in Sigur Rós have, according to their press materials, embraced a more "direct, aggressive sound" on their album Kveikur, due out on June 18 through XL Recordings. Now you can judge it for yourself, as the band have offered it up as an advance stream.

You can hear the whole thing on Amazon and check out the band's harder hitting new sound. It was created by Sigur Rós' new trio lineup following the depature of keyboardist/co-founder Kjartan Sveinsson. Of course, their stylistic shift hasn't come at the cost of their cinematic dreaminess.

Go here to get stuck in and, if you're suitably impressed, pre-order a copy of the disc.
