Efterklang's album Parades. Available here on Rough Trade Exclusive White Colored Double LP.
'Parades' is the second album by Denmark's Efterklang, the follow up to their underground hit of 2004, 'Tripper'. Comprising 11 majestic, otherworldly pop songs, 'Parades' manages to be both magnificently ambitious and engagingly intimate; a breathtaking panorama of sound with few clear antecedents. Music with no boundaries. The recording itself took 18 intense months and involved more than 30 guest musicians, including a string quartet, a brass quintet and three separate choirs. Unlike previous recordings, the band relied less on digital techniques and went for a palatial sound by recording in large rooms. Darren Allison (who worked on My Bloody Valentine's 'Loveless', and 'Ladies and Gentlemen' by Spiritualized - records that surely need no introduction) mixed the album on analogue equipment with Efterklang's Mads Brauer.
