Tripper was Efterklang's ambitious debut album, originally released in 2004.
The album whispers like thunder, combining transcendent melodies with glacial strings and piano, febrile electronics, hushed male-female vocals and a Greenlandic choir. A year in the making, the album is intense and dramatic; intimate yet coolly detached.
Second Sun was my introduction to Bonobo, and that song will stick with me forever. The strange ambient style was unlike anything I've heard before, and the rest of the album didn't disappoint either. carltagan
