Just got this and I'm impressed.
I see they are playing live soon, any good live?
countless times better live than on record; one of the happiest, most life-affirming shows I've seen.
but they are amazing. i saw the leeds show with the Britten Symphonia and it was incredible.. though i kind of wish they had also played some songs off Tripper too, now THAT would have been life-affirming.
for the record i think Tripper edges it for me, though both albums are stunning, and indeed very different, but i like Tripper more...
really liked their albums despite many attempts to get into the records, there's just something unengaging about them for me. It just seems to work perfectly live.
i really wasn't that enamored by Parades for a long time after first hearing it. took me about six months before i came round to it.. There;s not doubt that that kind of sound really comes alive in a live setting though. for sho. i'd pay to see them at every available opportunity if i could.
seeing efterklang live
they create an atmosphere entirley bespoke to them which I havent witnessed before or sinc
