Sigur Rós offer brief window into new album

    While they remain hard at work on their Flood-produced fifth album, Sigur Rós has posted a few behind-the-scenes video clips on Dot, a widget on the band’s homepage. The player features a few live clips (not of new songs, unfortunately, but still pretty as always), as well as a very brief making-of-the-album snippet, with an even briefer clip of a new song (again, pretty, as far as five-second clips go).
