Listen to an Unreleased Jónsi (Sigur Ros) Track From His <i>Frakkur: 2000-2004</i>

Jónsi, for those unfamiliar, is the guitarist and vocalist for Sigur Ròs, who are playing four nights at their own NORÐUR OG NIÐUR festival in Reykjavik, Iceland on Dec. 27-30. The lineup already features U.S. transplants Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), Julianna Barwick, Stars of the Lid and Dan Deacon—new acts include Tangerine Dream, GusGus, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and a solo set from The Vaccines’ Árni.

Below, listen to a four-minute sample off of Jónsi’s collection of unreleased solo electronic recordings, Frakkur: 2000-2004, with cello bow noises peaking through the soft static, as if twinkling stars could talk. The whole collection will be available on limited-edition vinyl at the festival, among other exclusive releases.
