Sigur Dos!

Sigur Ros has news, x2!

Singer Jón Þór Birgisson (aka Jónsi) will be releasing a 9-track LP with his boyfriend Alex Somers as Riceboy Sleeps. The album "played solely on acoustic instruments in Iceland (and featuring long-time string collaborators Amiina, as well as the Kopavogsdaetur choir) and then endlessly toyed with on solar-powered laptops in a raw food commune in some far corner of Hawaii," according to a press release.
