This is the major label debut album from the eight piece rock band from southern California. After riding on success from their extremely catchy single “San Francisco” the band has come out with a thirteen track album for you to dance to. The Mowgli’s frontman Colin Dieden explains the higher goal of their album saying, “We’re trying to create a movement based on live, to make art for purpose of love to better this planet and our species.”


This is the seventh studio album from Icelandic rock group Sigur Rós. The anticipation for Kveikur was met by the release of two singles from the album, “Brennisteinn” and “ĺsjaki” during the months before the release. Sigur Rós have taken a new direction, both musically and thematically with Kveikur and it is a “more aggressive” than their previous albums. The band also went on an 82 date tour in late 2012 through 2013 as promotion of Kveikur.
