"Gobbledigook" is the first track on Sigur Rós' album 'Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.' It was filmed in May 2008 by Arni & Kinski, who has previously directed the band's "Glósóli", "Viðrar vel til loftárása" and "Hoppípolla" videos, as well as collaborating with Ryan McGinley, whose recent work has been used as the cover art for the album and the consequent singles. Cinematographer Christopher Doyle shot the video.

Icelandic band, Sigur Rós, have always created music on their own terms with an original sound, production, and visual identity. Over the past year, they have been releasing music videos with renowned filmmakers as part of the Valtari Mystery Film Experiment. Ryan McGinley's film happens to be one of our favorites of the year. To conclude the series, we have the Elle Fanning-starring video by Floria Sigismondi for the track, Leaning Towards Solace. Enjoy.

As you may know by now, we are heading to SF's historic Golden Gate Park this weekend (August 10—12) as curators of all the artwork at the 2012 Outside Lands Music and Art Festival. Seeing that we work with a bunch of artists who make album cover artwork for some of the biggest bands in the world, we decided to celebrate Outside Lands by ranking our favorite album covers of those bands playing at this year's festival. That means Neil Young, Stevie Wonder, The Walkmen, Grandaddy... just go and see for yourself.

Nothing gets you feeling serene more than a girl barefoot skipping through Manhattan with sunshine golden hair while Sigur Ros' beautiful music is playing and Ryan McGinley providing the visuals. We think that pretty much covers it. From the looks of it, this is part of Sigur Ros Mystery Film Experiment, and it may be the most epic 8 minutes you spend today.

In conjunction with the Icelandic band's new DVD release, Inni, Irish artist Conor Langton just released a limited edition print of the famed Sigur Ros. If you aren't recording albums in an emptied swimming pool in some quiet Icelandic village, what are you doing with your band?
