I picked this album up after having heard a few Efterklang songs. I didnt really know what to expect but I have to say, it struck me as an incredible album straight off. It's original and different to anything you'll hear elsewhere, with violin, piano, brass and a chorus of voices working together in such a moving way. Quite a swashbuckling adventure of an album thats bursting with colour, fantasy and personality. Uplifting at times, quiet and peaceful at others. I cant recommend it enough- I'm obsessed! If you like your music with a slice of fantasy and at times, gently poignant I say give this a go.

On a side note, I also really recommend seeing Efterklang live if you get the oppurtunity- an experience not to be missed :)

Danish ensemble Efterklang created quite a buzz earlier this year, issuing the superb "Under Giant Trees" Ep. Intended as a stop-gap release, to whet the appetite for their second album "Parades, tracks such as "Jojo" and "Himmelbjerget" pointed to a band on the cusp of greatness. To release such music, while recording material for an album, is no mean feat and displays an unconceited confidence in the strength of their recording capabilities. Simply put, few bands can afford to discard such wonderful music onto limited-edition releases.

But Efterklang are not just any band, choosing not to do things by half, it seems they have poured every creative ounce of energy into "Parades". Some eighteen months has been spent on this record and it is structured like an elaborate, never-ending maze. Employing no fewer than thirty musicians to augment this already sprawling collective, such attention to detail makes Arcade Fire's "Neon Bible" look like a solo record.

There is a sense of theatre to this releases, it is choc full of cinematic crashes, lavish crescendos and grand arrangements. It certainly parallels the enigmatic nature of debut album "Tripper", but this record's vision imposes its majesty on the listener from the outset.

There is direct focus on vocal arrangements, with male and female harmonies colliding with luxuriant orchestration and subtle electronics. "Caravan" is most noticeable for this; with the female arrangement sounding like one hundred Björk's singing in unison from atop a mountain. "Him Poe Poe" also excels in the vocal department, delicately balancing male whispers around swelling violin and cascading harmonies.

Charming packaging. Lush sounds too. No-one can deny the effort and endeavor on show here but it's all a bit dull. A curio that will end up at the dusty end of your music collection. Avoid.
