    Riceboy Sleeps—the ongoing art project of Sigur Rós frontman Jón Þór Birgisson and his boyfriend, graphic designer Alex Somers (see his award-winning Takk... sleeve)—has finished their first full-length record for a July 20 release through Parlophone. The self-titled LP has no U.S. label yet, but videos of "All the Big Trees" and "Daníell in the Sea" can be found here. The duo also lent their "Happiness" track to the recently-released Dark Was the Night compilation.

    As for what all of this sounds like, a press release described the recording process as follow: "[Riceboy Sleeps was] played solely on acoustic instruments in Iceland (and featuring long-time string collaborators Amiina, as well as the Kopavogsdaetur choir) and then endlessly toyed with on solar-powered laptops in a raw food commune in some far corner of Hawaii."

    Riceboy Sleeps:
    1. Happiness
    2. Atlas Song
    3. Indian Summer
    4. Stokkseyri
    5. Boy 1904
    6. All the Big Trees
    7. Daníell in the Sea
    8. Howl
    9. Sleeping Giant
