i've bought it this morning, is it better than parades?
...you could give it a few spins and make up your own mind.
but it is fantastic, Foetus,Step Aside,Swarming,Torturous Tracks,Chapter 6 all very good songs. In terms of whether Parades is better, i prefer Tripper but Parades is still very good.
it's spinning as i speak.
a lot more 'beatier'(sp.)than parades.
get that if you dont already have it.
Parades is nice enough but it tends to wash over me, whereas Tripper seems like it has something you can actually latch onto.
Either way, its nice / pretty electroinc stuff with male and female vocals. Lots of blips and blops, along with other organic instruments. Really lovely. Tripper is my favourite.
post-rocky stuff with gentle vocals. It's a pretty varied album.
Parades is more monumental, like Bjork's Vespertine. Very vocal-heavy with alot of choral layers, and heavy on the brass arrangements.
Both are stunning pieces of work.
EPs Springer & Under Giant Trees also worth picking up
Step Aside is up there as one of my favorite Efterklang tracks. She's a monster live.
They're one of the main reasons i've forked out for a Summer Sundae ticket.
Only Joanna Newsom and her 32 piece orchestra beat them to 'gig of 2007'
