Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi to release english-language solo effort


Here's a taste:

I'm not too excited about something labeled the "most orchestral" Sigur Ros related effort. IMO, their last album got a little bit lost in the weeds with endless static songs that went nowhere, especially on the second side. Jonsi needs to up the melodic content a bit in his music and drop a little bit of the atonal lullaby cooing if you ask me.

Having said that, I like the first track, a bit of electronica in there which is a good idea. Not sure about the "growly, howly" lyrics, though.
