Assuming that the second post in this thread is correct, the third track on the EP is not on the album, and thus must be a b-side?
From the email:

Brennisteinn,' a punishing, prescient glimpse of their forthcoming album, their first on XL worldwide (more soon.) Next is an opiated, slowed down reading of the same track from the band's home studio. Then finally, album outtake Ofbirta.

Yeah, I'm still in love with it. Right behind Agaetis for me.

( ) and Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust are probably tied for second for me, but it dno. I love everything Sigur has done.

Played the title track on Fallon last night.

I've loved this band for, what, 10 years? After hearing Fallon say it, is that really how you pronounce the band name ("Seeger Ross")? If so, man, I've been butchering it for a good while whenever I'd tell people to check them out or what I was listening to.

Edit: And apparently the title of this record is pronounced "Quaker"?

How have you been pronouncing it then?

Icelandic is a bit of a bugger of a language anyway ha. I've been listening to Bjork for as long as I can remember and I still don't pronounce her name right. Or would have a clue about where to start with her surname.

I mean, the second track on this new EP is called Hryggjarsula. I'm pretty sure that's unpronounceable.
