067/100 - "Magic Chairs" by Efterklang
"Magic Chairs" by Efterklang is one of those hauntingly beautiful albums that stays with you long after the album has finished. Efterklang’s combination of dreamy electronics, post-rock and orchestral instrumentation is inspired, it creates wonderful soundscapes over which vocalist Casper Clausen can sing so intently.
I find this album, Efterklang's first on 4AD, to be a real joy. I loved their first two albums on The Leaf Label - “Tripper” and “Parades” - but this one really stuck out to me and stuck with me … it's the kind of positive record that brightens any day with its gentle yet engaging ambience.
