Slaraffenland. Say it. Sluh-raf'-in-luhnd.
It means "the land of milk and honey" in Denmark.
Based in Copenhagen, Slaraffenland found its final formation in 2002: Christian Taagehøj, Mike
Taagehøj, Bjørn Heebøll, Niklas Antonsson, and Jeppe Skjold. They expertly expanded on the
guitar-bass-drums standard with brass and woodwind instruments, various racket-makers, and
transfixing gang vocals. Many of them childhood friends (and Mike and Christian identical twins),
they've spent years developing a sound that conjures everything from free jazz to noise to melodious addictive rock.
