Free Leaf Sampler Available For Download Now
Published 23 July 2009 by BWL

In March 2009 we released a free Leaf download sampler called Don't Run Over The Birds, Please. in the form of a Dropcard. The compilation features tracks by most of our current artists including an exclusive track by Murcof and versions of tracks from upcoming albums by Efterklang, Vladislav Delay and Nancy Elizabeth.

The sampler will also be available for FREE to subscribers to our newsletter until the end of August. To be added to The Leaf Label’s info mailing list (if you're not already), sign up at: and follow the instructions to get the free downloads.

Efterklang Announce New CD/DVD And European Tour Dates
Published 31 July 2009 by BWL

Efterklang have announced the release of Performing Parades, their most ambitious project yet. A limited edition deluxe gatefold CD+DVD and LP+DVD package, it features the collective performing their acclaimed 2007 album Parades in full, accompanied by The Danish National Chamber Orchestra, in their hometown of Copenhagen.

“In many ways this release marks the pinnacle of what we have been trying to achieve with our two albums, Tripper and Parades,” says the band’s Casper Clausen. “It also closes a chapter as we work on taking our music in a new direction.”

The live recording is packaged with an intimate 55-minute concert film directed by Benjamin Hesselholdt. The DVD also includes a behind the scenes documentary (with English and Danish subtitles) of the preparations for the event, as well as all six video clips made for songs from Parades and an acoustic performance of 'Mirador' is also featured on the DVD.

The artwork for the project is by the acclaimed design duo Hvass&Hannibal, who also produced the artwork for Under Giant Trees and Parades, as well as the costumes, production and stage design for the Copenhagen show.

Efterklang will celebrate the release of Performing Parades with a major concert at London’s Barbican, that we previously announced, in which the orchestral version of Parades will be staged with The Britten Sinfonia, who teamed up with Efterklang to great success at this year’s fuseleeds09 festival.
