Published Sep 29, 2015Sigur Rós recently gave their 1999 album Ágætis Byrjun an expanded pressing, and now the Icelandic dreamweavers have rolled out two more vinyl reissues: 2002's ( ) and 2005's Takk….
Of the two, ( ) is easier to come by. It's been pressed on vinyl a couple of times before and copies typically go for around $45 CAD through online sellers. This latest edition comes on clear 140-gram double vinyl and is selling for $33.49 USD ($44.94 CAD). It's available in a numbered edition of 4,000 in a die-cut sleeve. It will arrive on October 19 and can be pre-ordered here. CD and digital versions are also available. The vinyl version includes the CD.
As for Takk…, it's significantly rarer, since it hasn't ever got a proper vinyl pressing since its initial release, and many online copies are selling for well over $200. The new edition goes for $59.99 USD ($80.49 CAD), which includes two 180-gram 12-inches, plus a one-sided 10-inch. These are also housed in a die-cut sleeve. It will land on November 16 and can be pre-ordered here (along, again, with CD and digital options).
There aren't any bonus tracks on these, but see the tracklists below; since Takk…'s 10-inch has an etching on one side, there's no D-side.
A few months back, Sigur Rós said that they were planning expanded editions of ( ) 1997's Von. It's not clear if this is the reissue of ( ) they were talking about, or if Von is still slated for a new pressing.
