Introducing The Sweet Hurt + Sigur Ros - "Gobbledigook"

The Sweet Hurt ( Los Angeles, CA)

It really doesn't get any better than the sweet, serene voice of Miss Wendy Wang and her beautiful project - The Sweet Hurt. Her music is, for lack of a better word, pure perfection. Every song features her always soothing, never forced vocals that come across like an instant classic.

This Saturday, June 7th, The Sweet Hurt will be having a release show for their new EP - In The Shade Of Dreams at Pehrspace. The 5-song EP will be released via Red Rockets Glare Records - Home of Frankel, Leviathan Brothers, and The Harpeth Trace. The night is all ages, only $5, and will include performances from Evan Slamka of Marjorie Fair and Parlour fame, Alex Lily, and Liz Pappademas making it a must see on your weekend hit list. Download "Where Would You Go" now for the full effect.

Also be sure to check out two excellent interviews with Wendy over at RFSL and CGT.

Sigur Rós (Reykjavík, Iceland)

Sigur Rós are giving away a track off their highly anticipated new album "Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust" (English translation: with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly) for free.

"Goobledigook" (seriously AMAZING name for a song) is a folk inspired tune that features tribal drums, percussive guitar, and lots of chanting. Perfect song to do laundry to if you ask me. Head over to Sigur Ros' site to download a high quality 320 kpbs version of track. You can also download it below.

The new album is in stores June 23rd via XL Recordings
