Frakkur
2000 - 2004

In the first years of the 21st Century Jónsi - the one from Sigur Rós, not the one who represented Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest a few years back - was experimenting heavily with electronic music. Operating under the name Frakkur, Jónsi busied himself on a variety of laptops, synthesisers and DAWs during breaks from touring. Now some of the music he made in this time is collected for new compilation '2000 - 2004'. There’s a wide breadth of stuff here - some of it comes close to the music of the Rós, but there are also notes of Autechre, Jan Jelinek and Four Tet across these two-dozen tracks.

Sigur Rós
22° Lunar Halo

Sigur Ros recently reworked some of their old output for the soundtrack of a dance work by choreographer Cheng Tsung-Lung. The new music they forged from old means also rank as some of the band’s most arresting output, a collection of detailed drones and serious rhythm workouts that aren’t a million miles away from Einstürzende Neubauten. Don’t believe us? See for yourself - the show’s score has now been released through KRUNK under the title 22° Lunar Halo.

Sigur Rós
Variations On Darkness

Lately the Icelandic group Sigur Ros have spent a fair bit of time writing music for dance pieces. As well as 22° Lunar Halo - the score they created for a new choreography by Cheng Tsung-Lung - les Ros also turned out Variations On Darkness for a performance by the Icelandic Dance Company at their own Nordur og nidur festival. Comprising of new material and re-workings of some older tracks, the two side-long pieces of Variations On Darkness find the band at their most expressive and ambitious. Everything from icy drone to broiling noise to the organic power electronics of Ben Frost get a look-in here.

Circe

Composed especially to accompany a forthcoming BBC documentary on vaudevilles and circuses, Circe is the product of Georg Holm, Orri Páll Dyrason, Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson and Kjartan Holm (mostly members of affiliates of Sigur Ros). The record is a continuous, pulsing instrumental thing, sounds quite wonderful. On Krunk.
