‘Ágætis byrjun’ is the critically acclaimed second album by Icelandic band Sigur Rós and was recorded by the band with producer Ken Thomas in 1999 at their Sundlaugin studio in the Icelandic countryside. The out of print vinyl record comes packaged on 2 x 12-inch heavyweight vinyl to the exact original packaging spec. Originally released on Fat-Cat & Smekkleysa this repress see’s the album being released on the bands own record label Krunk.

Beautiful and alien, Ágætis byrjun was like being plunged into an Atlantis where language, gender and songforms were largely indeterminate. Sigur Rós conjured magic with drones, using strings, brass, electronics and guitars that took Jimmy Page’s bowing technique to new heights. But the showstopper was Jonsi Birgisson’s otherworldly voice, swooping between tenor confessions and falsetto ballet.
