Geschichten von der Heilewelt - a blog for music lovers

"It is wonderful to be able experience art without understanding how it was meant or what makes it good." (Kim Boekbinder said that during an interview I did with her) I might not have the biggest knowledge about music but I have a great passion for it. Passion is what counts.

I live in Berlin, Germany (born, raised and still resident) and this is my personal blog about music and other things that cross my way. Things I love to be exact. And even though I am German and my English is still not perfect, this blog is in English.

Still in the middle of the end phase of my Diploma thesis but I just have to share this. It’s the new track from Efterklang. I love it! It’s leaves me full of anticipation for their next album. Below you find the information text from their SoundCloud. Also, I know I am always amazed when Earl Harvin uses his magic on drums and Peter Broderick his magic on strings. 

SoundCloud describtion: 

Hollow Mountain is the opening song of Efterklang´s 4th album Piramida. Released September 24th 2012 on 4AD and Rumraket.

Pre-Order of vinyl & CD available via http://www.efterklang.net

As previously revealed (https://vimeo.com/44683198), last summer Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg visited Piramida, an abandoned mining settlement located on Spitsbergen, just 1,000km from the North Pole. Nine days of exploring later, and the band had collected over 1,000 sound recordings and inspiration for the album they would subsequently write and record in Berlin.

Accompanying Hollow Mountain is a specially-commissioned visual piece created and directed by Oodls (Jakob Steen & Christoffer Frandsen). The clip features the band’s own photos from their trip to Piramida as well as elements of Piramida album artwork (designed by Hvass&Hannibal).

The initial tones of Hollow Mountain are the sounds of one of Efterklang many discoveries in the ghost town of Piramida. For more info on this please see: http://efterklang.net/home/?p=1157

With contributions from Earl Harvin (drums, Tindersticks), Nils Frahm (wurlitzer), Peter Broderick (strings) and the 60-piece South Denmark’s Girls Choir, Hollow Mountain is a grand opening statement to Efterklang’s fourth studio album.
