This new Sigur Ros album is going to best album that comes out this year. Listening to it right now its amazing. Bonnaroo needs to pony up the dough and get them down on the farm to pre headline for radiohead.
I havent heard the new Sigur Ros but I bet it is great. I picked up Death Grips on RSD and at first I wasn't super impressed, but after a few listens I think it is a really solid record. Very fun and catchy
I've had the new Sigur Ros for about a week now, and it has been on heavy rotation. It's very mellow and ethereal. It reminds me a lot of () Untitled, not as upbeat as Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. But I am still enjoying the crap out of it.

Are we listening to the same record? You think Death Grips is "fun" and "catchy?" I think the album is tremendous, but "fun" and "catchy" are about the furthest from how I'd describe it. More like "abrasive" and "unnerving" and "unsettling."
I can see it for some of the tracks. "Hacker" and "I've Seen Footage" are sort of upbeat.

I mean fun as in it is a fun experience to listen to. Sure it is abrasive and angry but that can make for a really fun listening experience. Just like a lot of metal is super angry but a really good time. And you are kidding yourself if you don't think parts of this album are catchy, Ive Seen Footage is one of the catchiest rap songs to come out in awhile
