Some quick news alerts:
Impossible City, and it’s residents, are big fans of Sigur Ros and now it seems that one of there own, keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson, has reportedly been aquired to score the soundtrack for Irish director Neil Jordan‘s next film, Ondine. Jordon (The Crying Game and Interview With A Vampire) has also got star Colin Farrell to star in it and is said to be about an Irish fisherman who discovers a mermaid caught in his net. The soundtrack will also feature songs by Sigur Ros on the soundtrack.
Virgin Megastore is set to shut down yet another two shops in addition to the Times Square location this spring. That leaves just three shops open in the US. The chain which was once eleven stores strong is set to close both its NYC Union Square Store and San Francisco’s Market St. locations by the end of May and will now only be left with locations in Denver, Los Angeles, and Orlando. As much as we love vinyl here, maybe the “Mega-Store” has had it’s time.
