For Record Store Day, Sigúr Ros released two new soundtracks. 22° Lunar Halo is the musical accompaniment to a brand new work by Taiwanese choreographer Tsung-lung, while Variations On Darkness soundtracks a series of choreographed performances from the Iceland Dance Company. Both releases were pressed on limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day and are also available to stream in full below.
Next up for Sigúr Ros, the band will mark the 20th anniversary of their sophomore album, Ágætis byrjun, with the release of an expansive new box set. This fall, frontman Jónsi and his partner Alex Somers will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their collaborative LP, Riceboy Sleeps, by embarking on an orchestral tour.
In less pleasant news, the members of Sigúr Ros are entangled in a tax evasion case in their native Iceland.
