LIVESound: Sigur Rós Debut “Kveikur” on Fallon


One day after unleashing "Brennisteinn," the beastly first listen off their forthcoming new album Kveikur (due out June 18th on XL Recordings) and on the eve of their largest tour to date, Sigur Rós returned to late night television on Friday for the first time in nearly a decade by paying a visit to Studio 6B as the musical guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. There, the newly toughened-up Icelandic post-rockers brought the walls down with a full string and brass section in tow by debuting the quaking militant title track from LP 7. Whoever booked these dudes to top their festivals last summer in support of Valtari tour must be kicking themselves right now, because this is the visceral Sigur Rós you came to see...
