deep distance / sound effect records
if you like your krautrock infused with a pastoral blissfulness to help you gently float rather than gallop down the autobahn of your dreams, then this lush lp is the one for you.
Cluster, neu, harmonia…you know the score, but rarely has it been done with such a gentle, midas-touch in recent times. Splashy motorik pulses, dreamy fretboard bends, and plinky keys ease you into a state of glorious repose. It even gets a bit eastern-tinged at times, spooling into ash ra/popol vuh territories. Don’t let the name-checking put you off – this is superior stuff to feel about rather than think about.
