Slaraffenland land


IF YOU liked Efterklang's recent album Magic Chairs - and I know I did - then the sound of Slaraffenland should sit well with you as well.
Because the Danish band exude the same experimental rock folk pop vibe on We're On Your Side - almost literally the same in fact, as the two acts frequently collaborate under the name Slaraffenklang.
Like a non-threatening These New Puritans, Slaraffenland exude warm brass and orchestral goodness over steady plods I'm led to believe are as much improvised as composed.
The result is an ebbing and flowing LP that's well worth siding with.
