cd cover Afenginn
Akrobakkus ()

fRoots says: 'Denmark's favorite madmen (the closest analogy as far as bizarre humor goes is 3 Mustaphas 3) are back with more of what's become their stock-in-trade: Balkan-influenced original music that veers from the bizarre to the sublime. The music, by mandolin player Kim Nyberg, is delightfully complex and full, bringing in not only the five-piece band but a number of guests here and there. The musicianship is wonderful throughout (just listen to clarinetist Rasmus Krøyer wail, or the solos from bassist Andrzej krejniuk) and the sense of strange fun is as palpable as on their previous discs (you have to love a band that lists "trash" among their instruments). The liner notes are as interesting and amusing as the music and that's saying a lot. They've developed into a worldclass eccentric group, even though there's little of Denmark in their sound (okay, absolutely nothing). Take them for what they are, which is wonderful, and enjoy. Pure madness'

The band says:
In the dark uniform western hemisphere, where rationality and stress seems to be the new religion, a small distant light is now appearing. Deeply rooted in the faith and tradition of sincere musical virtuosity and sheer madness, the new release from the acrobatic Danish deviates Afenginn, must challenge the stagnate state of every part-time depressed citizen of modern society.
In a challenging unpretentious head-on collision with the conformity of well polished musical mainstream, this one-of-a-kind polyethnic contrastic Balkan-Scandinavian music blend will make every honest delirium-connoisseur go into ruptures. The music is best defined as Bela Bartok drinking schnappses of melancholic nordic klezmer with Mike Patton. This new and second release, Akrobakkus, will make you twitch, twist and tangle all the way through the summernight…
Afenginn, Winner of the Danish Music Award World 2005, is releasing the second album Akrobakkus April 19th on TUTL. Distribution handled by directly through the band or by TUTL. After the Akrobakkus release bacchanal Afenginn is touring in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland and Estonia.

They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
