Three weirdos posting under the YouTube user name giraffedance really love Jónsi‘s recent single Boy Lilikoi. Apparently, enough to create an improvised interpretive dance for the song.  Unfortunately, only one of the three members of the giraffedance dance troupe has a beard.

Make sure to check out their page for other gems, including The Album Leaf, David Bowie, Vampire Weekend and more.  And stay tuned for more information on Jónsi‘s upcoming album.

This morning, members of the Sigur Rós mailing list were sent a simple email that said in plain lettering, “www.jonsi.com“.  Following the link leads to what you can easily guess is Sigur Rós vocalist Jónsi Birgisson‘s new personal website.  eighteen seconds before sunrise, the official Sigur Rós website, confirms the undoubted fact that it is Birgisson‘s new site.  For the moment, the site consists of text like that pictured above, and a space to enter your email address to join a mailing list, but the band’s website gives a little more information, stating “go explore and check back over the next few days and beyond as more information is revealed.”

Click around the site for a little surprise.  We here at Years For Beards hope that this means what we are all thinking.  That j sure sounds intriguing…

UPDATE: It’s official (as if it took any real guessing).  All the letter samples are active, and members of the site’s mailing list were sent a free download of the track “boy lilikoi” from Jónsi upcoming solo album.  We here at Years For Beards are very excited by this new track, and we think you will be too.
