    There was much merriment at Brooklyn's Union Pool last Tuesday night, where Denmark's Slaraffenland (say Sluh-raf'-in-luhnd) wrapped up their States-side tour and celebrated last week's release of We're on Your Side (Hometapes), the follow up to 2007's Private Cinema.

    In Danish, Slaraffenland translates to "The Land of Milk and Honey," an apt name for a band whose sound (rife with Viking-like chanting, tinges of pop and lots of percussive clapping) is so clearly inspired by their Scandinavian roots. The five-piece hopped onto the crowded stage just before midnight in matching cartoon-ish skeleton t-shirts and treated the crowd to an energetic smattering of songs.

    The Copenhagen-based band was preceded by the minimalist sounds of Glass Ghost and The Silent League, a chamber pop band from Brooklyn. The latter joined in the festive vibe, treating the show as a record preview party, giving away not only a sneak preview of their upcoming album But You've Always Been the Caretaker (Something in Construction), but also delicious chocolate cake to those in attendance. -lyndsey matthews
