CONTEST – Efterklang @ The El Mocambo – March 6, 2010

Photo By Nikolaj Holm MollerNikolaj Holm MollerWord is that earlier works from Denmark’s Efterklang tilted much more towards the experimental than their just-released third effort and 4AD debut Magic Chairs. And though Magic Chairs is hardly a collection of 3-minute, radio-friendly pop songs – it’s filled with typically Scandinavian twists and turns – it’s suffused with enough rich melodies and sweeping orchestrations to make keep it rooted firmly in heart rather than head. If they were more cerebral on past works, they’re certainly looking to dial that down this time out.

Efterklang will bring their Magic Chairs to North America on tour next week and that includes a date at the El Mocambo in Toronto on March 6. Tickets are $10 in advance but courtesy of Collective Concerts, I have one pair of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT with “I want to Efterklang” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, March 3.

Drowned In Sound solicited a track-by-track annotation of the new album from the band and there’s a live performance available to watch at 4AD Sessions.
