Sigur Rós launch new mixtape ‘Liminal’

The endless mix is available for streaming now.

Sigur Rós have launched new mixtape ‘liminal’, which is available for streaming online now.

Following ‘liminal’ soundbaths in Los Angeles and Reykjavík, the band’s Jónsi has joined up with long-term musical collaborators, Alex Somers and Paul Corley, to release the first chapter of an “endless mixtape”. The project will be “added to frequently and endlessly”, according to a statement on the band’s website.

“In bringing together these collaborations and commissions with solo work and the work of close friends in the Sigur Rós ‘family’, liminal aims to take the listener to a hinterland, to the threshold of a place neither nor there; a ‘liminal’ space,” the statement reads. “It approaches Sigur Rós as a living, breathing eco-system, identifying the connections and blurring the boundaries between work done and work to come; between brand new music and ideas barely yet born; between songs written 20 years ago and collaborations to be made tomorrow.”

This mixtape comes after the band contributed to the soundtrack of the new series of Black Mirror earlier this year and soundtracked a new art installationin Reykjavik.
