With the release of (), Sigur Ros' third album that had no lyrics, no track titles, and no name, the foursome from little Iceland had reached a new plateu of experimental rock. From the elegant piano to the heavy hitting guitar riffs, () was all about emotion. Now, nine months after its release, a new single has hit store shelves. It consists of the opening song on (), "vaka" to the fans, "track one" to all the others. Then it transforms into three new "songs", if you can call them that. They are actually just remenants of the first track, transfomed and melded into something new, which ultimately works. With the notable exception of track 4 which is nothing more than timed reverb bursts (but does sound somewhat cool). Other than the abstract music, though, "The Vaka EP" comes with a DVD containing all the band's videos. I havent viewed this, but I have seen the videos before and they were excellent. All in all, if you have 9 dollars, you should definately buy this little single album, especially if your a current fan of Sigur Ros or Radiohead. All you newbies would probably be thrown off by its haunting sound (your better off getting to know the group by listening to its 2nd album: agietis byrjun). Thumbs up. 2b1af7f3a8
