Tripper

Album Reviews
After Icelandic stalwarts Mm and Sigur Ros set the agenda for North European post-rock it only seems fair that their near neighbours from Denmark should join in too. Efterklang's 'Tripper' stick to the electronica-with-strings template bringing in their own muffled childlike voices and melodies and even a choir. Yet they add little to this already over-populated market and the result is a rather muted version of past glories from their contemporaries. Only on the Charles Atlas-like 'Tortuous Tracks' and Bjrk-informed 'Prey And Predator' do Efterklang's endeavours make some kind of emotional reach. Much of the other material is funereal and somewhat detached from human feeling, like an over-calculated attempt to reproduce someone else's sound; the over-use of strings actually undermining its power rather than adding to it. It's dreamy, certainly, but only in the soporific sense.
