Editorial Reviews

Magic Chairs is the third full-length album by Copenhagen, Denmark's Efterklang. The album finds the band expanding on their already expansive sound, while diving into the core of their ever evolving music. After six years of ambitious releases and concerts around the world, Efterklang have arrived at their most immediate and focused album to date

5.0 out of 5 stars Different isn't always bad. March 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Magic Chairs may mark a shift in sound for Efterklang, but breathtaking moments are still around every corner. Mass arrangements, accidental sounds and full ensemble vocals have been traded in places for a more stripped down poppier approach. Casper Clausen's vocals are brought to the forefront, leading the group as opposed to being part of the chorus. Some will surely say that Efterklang is trying to cash in on the indie rock boom, and I would agree if the songs were not so sincere and amazingly performed. The elements that the band is known for are still present, just a bit more subdued. The songs are well crafted, Casper's vocals are amazing and the songs hold up live. No band should release the same album their whole career. Efterklang gets credit not only for trying something different and pulling it off well, but for also being one of the nicest groups in the world. This band deserves all of your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like March 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I just saw Efterklan live tonight at TT the Bears and was blown away. Man, are they good live. Plus, they are really nice and funny onstage. Magic Chairs is the best album of 2010 so far... Just listen to the first three tracks of this CD and you will be instantly hooked. 4AD, thanks for always introducing me to amazing acts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic, Indeed. February 23, 2010
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
With Magic Chairs, Efterklang has bridged the gap into a more accessible realm of pop music. Efterklang seek perhaps a more profitable labor and have mostly abandoned their immense, cinematic presence and incomprehensible lyrics for a more understandable, logical approach. Songs titles "Harmonics" and "Natural Tune" are obvious indications of this endeavor. However, what they have left behind has not completely vanished and with repeated listens, the layers remain; though more subtle and carefully placed. This attention to detail is most impressively heard in the one-two punch of "Raincoats" and "Harmonics". It's truly a difficult process to find fault and that says much about Efterklang's work ethic and their endless steps towards pop perfection. This is the best album to be released this year so far and I imagine it will be there at the end as well.
