Very Cosmic

How about some krautrock? Oh don’t groan you lot.

In 1974 Michael Rother (from Neu!) joined with Moebius and Roedelius (both from Cluster) to make the Musik Von Harmonia album. This track (song isn’t really the right word) is Dino, lovely swathes of sound and melody with rhythm driving it on. The album also contains tracks called Sehr Kosmisch and Hausmusik- both of it’s time and ahead of time. I’ve got a feeling the last time I played this in full the even numbered tracks were good and odd numbered tracks less interesting, but I could be imagining it.

There’s something about all this snow and ice which seems quite teutonic. If you’re interested BBC 4’s excellent krautrock documentary is repeated tonight at 10.30. Worth staying up for.
