Finally they named a song after the lyrics. Sigur Rós ' new single is "Gobbledigook," a track involving lots of hand clapping and possible Icelandic lyrics and a beat that'll make you instantly giddy. It's got none of the navel gazing the band's performed in the past. Instead this is like Animal Collective from a foreign land (or even more of a foreign land than usual), and it comes off the new album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (if you need the translation: "With a buzz in our ears we play endlessly")."Gobbledigook" is better than Prozac to wake up your Monday, and it's available for download as our MP3 of the Day here. Get the full live experience at the Greek Theatre on 10/3. -- Jennifer Maerz
