Sigur Ros's new movie Inni is coming out in November but you can pre-order any combination of the DVD, Blu-Ray, and accompanying CD (and T-shirt) at their website here. This amazing live version of "Festival" (I just put the CD version on here last week as the accompaniment to 127 Hours) is the first advance single
Toronto's Ohbijou has a new album called Metal Meets that is out today via Last Gang Records. As a press release explains, the album "is inspired by ventures to cabins in the woods, travels across Asia, Europe and North America (headlining international tours), and lyrical reflections on familial bloodlines that move across borders."
Future Islands latest On the Water is out October 11. I really liked their last album and although my experience seeing them opening for Okkervil River this summer wasn't that great (I was only a week or two into my incredible toe pain and not drinking as a result), I am looking forward to this record.
The War on Drugs Slave Ambient has been out for over a month and I haven't posted any songs, largely because I hadn't heard the full album until recently. I need to correct that oversight right about now. It's pretty damned incredible. I saw them open for Destroyer (I think, or someone) this spring and was impessed as it is but this is definitely a band to watch, even if much of the indie rock world is already aware.
And lastly, here's a new track from The Twilight Sad, who are oddly holding off on releasing their 3rd full-length until February which is a long ways off so this is just a highlight preview. And it's really cool.
