New Sigur Rós Album Stream

The upcoming Sigur Rós album, Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly), has been made available for streaming via this little thingy:

[h/t Stereogum]

It's futile to judge music when given such a poor audio stream; that goes double for Sigur Rós. But it certainly seems like a significant departure from the epic noise rock that they do best. This has its dramatic moments, but the band appears to be emphasizing the acoustic and earthy this time around... no doubt a partial byproduct of their recent Icelandic barnstorming tour. I eagerly await the version you can actually hear.
