Want to hear Sigur Ros perform "The Rains of Castamere," from the popular and bloody HBO show Game of Thrones? Of course you do, because you love Icelandic post-rock bands diving headlong into a world of medieval backstabbing and intrigue! Check out the creepy tune in the replies.

Head to the replies to hear the last track, which is titled "Flaws", from Vancouver Sleep Clinic's forthcoming Winter EP. The 17 year old artist form Australia is heavily influenced by Bon Iver and Sigur Rós, so fans of those should check out this artist.

The members of Sigur Ros will appear on Game of Thrones this season. No word on what they will be doing on the show.
Thrones has landed Icelandic art-pop sensation Sigur Rós to appear in season four. Jón Ţór “Jónsi” Birgisson, Georg Hólm and Orri Páll Dýrason are currently shooting an appearance on the Thrones set in Croatia. What will the band mates do? Will they play a song? Might a bowed guitar be involved?

John Mayer coasts at the top of the charts again this week, moving almost 68,000 additional copies of Born and Raised - a 71 percent decline from his meteoric sales last week. Adele and One Direction come in after Mayer, while Regina Spektor and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros see the two highest debuts at No. 4 (38,000) and No. 6 (29,000), respectively. Sigur Ros also saw an excellent debut week, cracking the top 10 and No. 9 with 24,000 copies of Valtari. Equally as awesome, fun. saw a huge rise in sales, increasing 57 percent and selling another 17,000 copies of Some Nights - perhaps partially in thanks to the awesome music video they came out with.

Sigur Ros released the official video for "Eg Anda" today, produced by a filmmaker outside of the band. This was done to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow the filmmaker utmost creative freedom.
