New Band I’m Kinda Digging: Efterklang

l_d5afabb1a05d531263baece7adf0ca92

According to Wikipedia, Efterklang (the Danish word for remembrance and reverberation) is a Folktronica group formed on January 2001 in the Danish capital, Copenhagen. The group consists of five core members: Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen, Thomas Husmer, Rune Mølgaard and Rasmus Stolberg. When performing live, the core five-piece band is complemented with the addition of violinist/singer Peter Broderick, trombonist/singer Niklas Antonson, pianist/singer Anna Brønsted and guitarist/singer Frederik Teige.

According to my friend their recent show in Boston (Cambridge) at TT’s was pretty spectacular; the way he described them made a band like Godspeed You Black Emperor come to mind, though he did say their studio sound differed greatly from that which he experienced, so “try to get ahold of some of their live stuff” was his suggestion. That I’ve done, as well as getting ahold of music from the aforementioned “not as good as when performed live” studio releases.
