10-piece Danish ensemble Efterklang create wondrous music which settles beautifully into an open area somewhere between elegant minimalist orchestrations, the electronically-enhanced chamber music and communal rock experiment swelled by ribald strings, brass and choirs. With the relase of the escatatically acclaimed Under Giant Trees, Tripper and Parades (Leaf) and transcendant live shows, Efterklang are 2008’s most cherishable major new presence: innovative, celebratory and anthemic. http://efterklang.net/ http://www.myspace.com/efterklang
