#127 - Out in 1999, the second album by Sigur Rós, Ágætis byrjun translates as “A good beginning” in Icelandic. The ten songs on the album include some self-reference: the introduction contains backmasked parts from the title track, and the last song, "Avalon", consists of a different take of an instrumental passage from "Starálfur" slowed to around a quarter of its original speed. The strings in "Starálfur" are palindromic; they are the same forwards and backwards.
Sigur Rós have announced a new series of rare and previously unissued vinyl releases from themselves and collaborators, to coincide with their first-ever Norður og Niður holiday arts festival in Iceland. More info at https://nordurognidur.is/
