FREE SLARAFFENKLANG EP – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

December 18, 2008 by Rasmus

Please download and enjoy this free Live EP by Slaraffenklang!
A mutant band of Efterklang and Slaraffenland.

SLARAFFENKLANG – “Danish Dynamite Live at Sono Festival 2008″
DOWNLOAD THE FREE EP NOW – 30mb
There are 4 songs on the EP and a front cover is included in the zip archive as well.

Here is the story:
In May 2008 Efterklang & Slaraffenland were on a joint US tour under the name The Danish Dynamite Tour. Halfway through the tour the bands got a call from back home. The newly established Sono Festival wanted to hear if Slaraffenland and Efterklang could be interested in performing a special concert at their festival. After a very quick talk on the topic it was decided that everyone would love to play in a band with two drummers and a lot of distorted guitars and therefore the offer was accepted.

The 4 songs on this free live EP are all recorded at Sono Festival in Rødovre (a suburb to Copenhagen) November 8th 2008. This was the first and maybe also the last concert with Slaraffenklang. The idea is simple and fun. Slaraffenklang is the mutant band of Efterklang and Slaraffenland. There are 12 musicians on stage, all men, and the songs performed are covers of Efterklang and Slaraffenland. Sometimes just louder and more rumbling versions and sometimes in new slightly new arrangements.

tracklist:
Cutting Ice To Snow
Polaroids
Echo Wave
You Win

recorded, mixed and mastered by Petter Samuelsson.

Please Enjoy!

Photo Blog Updated – Thanks a lot Athens!!!

December 8, 2008 by Barnabas

Hi All
We’ve just updated our photo blog with pictures from our last tour of the year:
Efterklang Photo Blog

Also, we want to send out a big thanks to the incredible audience at An Club, Athens, GR, for giving us such a nice “last show of the year”, despite of the horrible thing happening just outside!

We’ll start looking into new songs now and prepare ourself for future adventures, so for the next months and during the winter we’ll stay at home in Copenhagen and empty our heads.

THANKS ONCE AGAIN TO ALL OF YOU AMAZING PEOPLE SHOWING UP AT OUR CONCERTS AROUND THE GLOBE DURING THE LAST 14 MONTHS, AND TO ALL OF YOU SENDING US SWEET WORDS & THOUGHTS! IT’S BEEN MAGICAL, AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!!!

Much much love
Mads, Thomas, Rasmus, Casper, Frederik, Niklas, Anna, Peter, Heather


Amazing Athens!

THANK YOU FOR A GREAT YEAR!

christmas card 5th December 2008
It might be a little early for this kind of greeting, but for Efterklang the year ends tomorrow in Athens, Greece when we will play the very last concert of our Parades tour. In the last 14 months, the tour has taken us to North America, China, and almost every single country in Europe. In total we have played 133 concerts since October 16th 2007. The entire list of concerts can be read below.

We have documented most of our travels on our flickr photo page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/efterklang-recordings – There are more than 1000 photos to be flickered.

We would also like to present our new Vimeo site. All our videos can be found in there including Cutting Ice To Snow, which Pitchfork just selected as one of the Top 40 videos of 2008. And as of today you can also watch the premiere of our new video for Polygyne by Carolina Melis. http://vimeo.com/rumraket

It has been one of the best years ever for us, and we are now looking forward to future adventures and new Efterklang releases in 2009. We also look forward to upcoming albums by Slaraffenland and Taxi Taxi! which will be released on our label Rumraket in 2009.

A thousand thanks (as we say in Danish) to everybody that somehow took part in this past year. We have experienced so many things and it is nice to have been able to share it with so many friends, musicians, collaborators and listeners!

Kaerlig hilsen
Efterklang
