Amazing band, i downloaded the flac file and now you are on my portable hi res audio player 4ever, best album!! (obviously piramida is a fu.... masterpiece, even the film-documentary), keep doing the best music, cheers from México!!
I love this band for so many reasons - but I think what makes them truly special is the way they follow their musical instincts wherever they might lead, exploring different sonic worlds with each new album. Liima + Efterklang never repeat themselves and they never disappoint. This album is another absolute gem.
Favorite track: 1982.
"LIIMA’s second album, 1982 (co-produced with Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor), provides a masterclass in pushing beyond one’s established comfort zones. The three Danes: Rasmus, Casper, Mads – who remain the key components of Efterklang – and Finish drummer Tatu wrote the songs during residencies in London, Copenhagen, Viseu (Portugal) as well as Berlin – and finally recorded the album with Chris in Porvoo (Finland). 1982 finds LIIMA - musically and lyrically – exploring themes that shaped their youth while looking forward to a future which, they acknowledge, is as uncertain as it ever might have been, and in which we all struggle to find our identity."

When I clicked on a City-Slang-mail announcing some new album following the link to pre-listen/check-out I thought that this guy's voice reminded me lots of Danish art-pop heroes Efterklang. Not so much later on, I discovered that this might be connected with Casper, of course, being the voice of Efterklang :-))
So, this is his solo debut, and, as might be expected, it's a good one. Probably more Piramida than Altid Sammen.
Meget godt, Casper! Carsten Pieper
