Sigur Rós vocalist Jón “Jónsi” Þór Birgisson has a solo album coming out in April. That is very far away. The Icelandic man has been busy though; he made a wonderful instrumental album with boyfriend Alex back in July of last year titled Riceboy Sleeps. We’re starting to hear tremors from the new album; and the cover art was just revealed this past Friday. TWJ posted one song in its “Sonic Stew” a few months ago, but you can now hear even more in an acoustic set and interview, courtesy of WNYC here! It’s a must listen.
Grab “Boy Lilikoi” and a bonus track from Riceboy Sleeps below and in our Jukebox!
