Product Description

Limited two CD release from the Danish Post Rock/Experimental band that combines two of their earlier releases: Parades and Under Giant Trees, both originally released in 2007. Parades is a huge, multi-tracked immensity of a recording, with some songs made up of over 250 different pieces. Like a gigantic piece of musical theatre, Parades is a remarkable achievement, dense and diverse and clearly a lot of fun to put together. You've never heard anything like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album! March 14 2008
By WolfAmI! - Published on
This truly is an incredible album. 'Parades' is a beautiful mix of electronic and traditional European folk that is simply stunning. Ranging from subtle and delicate to beat-laden and synth-heavy, Efterklang does a great job keeping their offering diverse and engaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Efterklang - Parades May 5 2011
By scoundrel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Symphonic post-rock, with carefully orchestrated vocals -- Efterklang's _Parades_ swells forth on a tsunami of sound. "Polygene," for example, has a cinematic scope to it, with layered vocals that build to a chorus. The military snare that rattles in "Mirador" get subsumed under a lovely haze of strings and horns. The chant on "Him Poe Poe" lends a fairy tale-like quality to its short running time; the same goes for the simple piano of "Mimeo." On many tracks, the voices of children add an angelic texture, a counterpoint to the more mature voices. "Blowing Lungs Like Bubbles," however, goes for a accordion-assisted dirge. And "Caravan" has the sharp and precise rhythms of a rock song. On the final track, "Cutting Ice to Snow," they take the languorous out, content to let guitars strum over a tinkling piano and a buzzing accordion before the vocals explode onto the scene. A surprisingly accomplished album.
5.0 out of 5 stars and beautiful. From marching band pooh-bear style happiness to mysterious March 27 2016
By J.D. Realms - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Truly, if you are looking for a musical method of returning to the most epic and child-like moments of awe and wonder in your life, look no further. The imagination and emotion here is stunning. Texture, rythym, melody... all of it is richly detailed, unique, and beautiful. From marching band pooh-bear style happiness to mysterious, night-like exploration, this album is a journey like no other.
5.0 out of 5 stars such a great band Oct. 1 2013
By Ryan An - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These guys really have their own sound. There are so many genres and elements that make up the beauty that is Efterklang... prog, opera, electronica, post-rock... I stumbled upon them with Tripper and have continued to buy and love their stuff so much.
It's difficult to even think of another band that does what they do.
5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly orchestrated and performed Sept. 9 2014
By Nathaniel FitzGerald - Published on
Format: LP Record Verified Purchase
A completely underrated piece of post-rocky chamberpop. The songs are sung by a multitude and flow in and out of moods at a whim. Brilliantly orchestrated and performed.
