Icelandic Pronunciation.

I'm having trouble finding a resource that has correct Icelandic pronunciation. Every site I go to the pronunciation seem different.
On Sigur Ros's site they have the pronunciation of the Icelandic alphabet which to me made sense to study because they are native Icelandic speakers. ( http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/band/pronunci.php ) I would however prefer if there was an IPA guide of Icelandic pronunciation.

Also I have trouble rolling my "r"s If I say a word without rolling my are would it perhaps be mistaken for another word in Icelandic?
