46 INDIE / ROCK GUESTLIST RECOMMENDS Issue 45 / 2012 SIGUR ROS The exceptionally talented and experimental Icelandic quartet released their sixth studio album earlier this year, before giving a memorable performance at Bestival, for which astonishingly the band apologised. Sigur Ros is a band wrapped in paradoxes- their mix of genres, ranging from classical to rock; their musical experimentation with innovative ways of playing traditional rock instruments; and the unique vocal prowess of undeniably one of the greatest voices in the genre, means that their emotion and ambient filled melodies are haunting yet intense, subtle yet overwhelming. After six albums most bands try to push the ALBUM OF THE MONTH TASTE IT boundaries of their own experimentation, yet for Sigur Ros their already impressive back catalogue serves merely as a reminder of the brilliance of the past, which will undoubtedly be eclipsed by their works of the future. For anyone who did not have the pleasure of witnessing the spectacle of their performance at Bestival, tickets for Sigur Ros' UK tour are on sale now. TOUR SCHEDULE : MUMFORD & SONS 'TOUR OF TWO HALVES' The hugely talanted teenager is due to release a new EP as a follow up to his number 1 album Heralded as the new messiah of rock 'n' roll by the usually plastic Radio 1, you'd be forgiven for being initially a bit sceptical of Jake Bugg. From a purely aesthetic viewpoint, he looks like a Last Shadow Puppets body double, with his Miles Kane hair and an equally dark, buttoned up trench coat. However even just from the cover of his major breakthrough 'Lightning Bolt', there were clues that this self-styled troubadour was something single, a bit different. From the Dylan-esque stare of petulance, to the cigarette that would make family- friendly fake folk 'artists' like Ed Sheeran choke on their Coco Pops. Following the success of his recent single releases and 'Taste it' EP, Bugg released his self- titled album late last month and if his previous work is anything to go by the resurrection of rock might not be too far away when left in the hands of this Nottinghamshire teenager. 21st November @ Torquay Princess Theatre 22nd November @ Portsmouth Guildhall 23rd November @ Ipswich Regent Theatre 25th November @ Dundee Caird Hall 26th November @ Carlisle Sands Centre 27th November @ Llandudno Venue Cymru 4thDecember @ Newcastle Metro Radio Arena 5th Devember @ Glasgow SECC 7th December @ Birmingham LG Arena 10th December @ Manchester Arena 11th December @ London O2 Arena 13th December @ Cardiff CIA 15th Devember @ Belfast Odyssey Arena 16th December @ Dublin O2
