Sigur Ros' 'Varuo' Off 'Valtari' (AUDIO)

The album Sigur Ros described as an "avalanche in slow motion" is continuing its slow descent, with the second new track release since "Ekki Mukk" more than a month ago. "Varuo" is as sombre as "Ekki Mukk," but also bigger in scope (smack in the middle of that avalanche versus the beginning, to extend the analogy). Check out the track below, fresh off a BBC6 Radio premiere. Valtari releases May 28 in the UK and May 29 in the US.
