2009 release of this instrumental side project from Sigur Ros member Jon Thor Birgisson and collaborator Alex Somers. Riceboy Sleeps is human in a profound and verging-on spiritual way. It says nothing, literally, and yet living through its 68-minutes you emerge feeling much has been revealed. Its slowly evolving abstract landscapes are both edifying and life-affirming. The record works as a whole, and exists in a contemplative dream-state, unconstrained and mesmeric, seemingly outside time. Nine tracks. Parlophone.
