    Iceland's best export since Björk and The Sugarcubes --that'd be Sigur Rós- will release their new album and first for XL Recordings on June 18. It's called Kveikur.

    The record, which was self-produced by the three members of Sigur Rós: Jón Þór Birgisson, Georg Holm and Orri Páll DýRason, sees the band shifting towards a more direct, aggressive sound.

    Also, here's a bonus; live footage from last week when the band played on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon:
