September 2012

Named after an abandoned mining colony perched on the edge of the Arctic Circle; “Piramida,” upgrades Danish trio Efterklang from agile art-rock intellects to unabashedly compassionate soul-catchers. The tightly-knitted outfit battles deep-seated ennui with altered electro-acoustics and micro-processed music, subtly manipulating field recordings from an on-site visit into sleek, otherworldly creatures. Stoic vocals focus quiet, kind-hearted care among subtle, understated despair as muted gloom and computer grooves braid icy programmed gloss around math-jazz pitter-patter, drums and bass sandwiched between gilded brass and calculated chasms of subsonic tectonics and wiggling widgets. Chilled post-rock thrills carpet sun-starved tundra in existential trenches and melodramatic castles; thawing memories waking fidgety sympathies inside slumbering wonder while amniotic dawns break from writhing tides of swirling space-age bravery facing handsome post-industrial phantoms
