It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Icelandic dream pop outfit Sigur Ros, most likely due to frontman Jonsi‘s solo outings, having released an ambient record with his partner Alex, and his acclaimed Go last year. The band has just uploaded a wad of previously unreleased material on their Soundcloud page, including demos, alternate versions and live renditions of some of their songs, all of which were produced in 1999 and 2000.

There are also demos recorded during the process of their acclaimed opus Agaetis Byrjun, a few short instrumental segments that were attached to songs like “ny batteri” and “svefn-g-englar” which didn’t appear on the album. The live cuts are particularly enjoyable, displaying that grand orchestral resonance that only Sigur Ros know how to commemorate. Check them out below, props to Consequence Of Sound for the heads up.
