Ai-yi-yi-yi-yi love rock 'n' roll

“Efterklang” is the Danish word for “reverberation”; it’s also a group that makes a glorious racket worth writing about—like many of the artists and groups in our local music scene, who are scooped every day on SW’s Reverb blog. There, the paper’s music coverage extends to a weekly rundown of new releases, music industry gossip, show reviews, incriminating photographs, and lots more. This year SW’s music festival has taken on the blog’s name, and represents much of what’s currently exciting about Seattle’s musical landscape. Check out the pullout in this issue for a rundown on the more than 50 artists performing, and special features on some particularly exciting ones, including D. Black, Pleasureboaters, and the Fleet Foxes. Then get thee to Ballard for a cheap, rad night of music that’ll resonate long after the last klang.
