'Performing Parades' is the latest release from Efterklang performing their 2007 album 'Parades' accompanied by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. I'm not familiar with the original record nor am I familiar with the previous works of the band but on first listen this sounds like an intriging record. I'll assume that the band play some form of dynamic post rock with big ambitions because this recording sounds super crazy. Dynamically the orchestra are called upon to translate some pretty wonky grooves. It sounds a little like Mew in it's scope and grandness with a big emphasis on unique instrumental arrangements reinforced with some really odd vocal performances. I don't know if they are supplemented with additional singers but the backing vocals are ultra pretty and the shimmering strings and staccato drum phrasing makes for an interesting listen. Efterklang obviously get a kick out of performing their music in such a grand and ridiculous manner and the playfulness and charm is evident on this document. The album also comes with a DVD of the original performance in Copenhagen as well as behind the scenes footage and seven music videos made to promote the original 'Parade' release. Pretty decent value for money I reckon.
