Radio-Active Records to Host Sigur Rós "Valtari Hour" Listening Party on May 17

On May 17, Sigur Rós will debut its latest EP, Valtari, during a 24-hour global listening party appropriately entitled the "Valtari Hour." Almost two weeks before the release date, listeners around the world can tune in for a streaming of the full album. The stream will take place on the band's website, local radio stations, and at record stores. The listening sessions will begin at exactly 7 p.m. local time around the globe. Valtari is the band's first album release in four years.

Instead of huddling around a computer with friends, South Florida fans can go down to Radio-Active Records to partake in one of the official listening parties. With every pre-order of the LP/CD, attendees have the opportunity to win a test pressing of Valtari, a copy of the RSD exclusive Hvarf/Heim on clear vinyl, and a custom, limited edition 11x14 print. In addition, Radio-Active Records will give the first 15 customers who pre-order the album a custom print.

Listen to "Ekki múkk" and enjoy seven minutes of ethereal heaven after the jump.

Sigur Rós "Valtari Hour" Listening Party. 7 p.m., Thursday, May 17, at Radio-Active Records, 845 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. Free. For more info click here.
