22° lunar halo. music by Sigur Rós and Kjartan Holm. vinyl repress available now: https://ffm.to/sr_lunar_repress.ofp 22° lunar halo blew out when we pressed it for Record Store Day back in April. So we’ve gone for a once-only vinyl repress with reversed-out artwork. We are really psyched about working with Cloud Gate 2, and hope you find the collaboration as thrilling as we do.
Georg talking about Ágætis byrjun: "There are demo versions of songs that actually made it onto the album which are closer to how we were playing them at the time than how they ended up on the record. The difference between how those songs were played live and how they were recorded is really interesting. The contrast between them gives an insight into our working methods at the time." read the Under the Radar article via https://sgr.is/2H2VmOe get the 20th anniversary edition: https://sgr.is/2Jpw6BU photo: Björg Sveinsdóttir #sigurrosAB20
