Sigur Ros Frontman Jon Por Birgisson To Release Collaborative Side Project / Album



Sigur Ros frontman Jon Por Birgisson, along with partner Alex Somers, will be releasing Riceboy Sleeps via Parlophone Records on July 20. The duo recorded the album in their native home of Iceland, using only used acoustic instruments and no vocals during the process.

Riceboy Sleeps started as a side project of Sigur Ros around 2003, when the two began staging exhibitions to display their new project, which encompasses a mixture of visual art and ambient music. The duo contributed the song "Happiness" to the Dark Was The Night compilation, which we now see was a sign of things to come.

The 68-minute LP does feature nine tracks that were "endlessly toyed with on solar-powered laptops in a raw food commune in some far corner of Hawaii."
