Did anyone else see Efterklang last night? They put on a transcendent show at the Doug Fir that I won't soon forget. Epic, smart, charming, gorgeous; plenty of compelling harmonies, out-in-a-field- at-the-end-of-the-earth hollering, and the kind of rhythms you want to jump up and down to. They straddled the fence perfectly between avant-garde and pop, between inscrutability and transparency...
And judging by all the new songs they played, the next album should be AMAZING.

A playfully serious and seriously playful finale to several weeks of madness.

Then I rode home in what I'm guessing will be the last snowflakes of a snowy winter.
