White Hills – White Hills (2010)waldoWhite Hills CD Album FRONT

Thu, 11 Mar 2010 13:44:55 +0000

Info: “Ah, Space Rock. As one of the tracks on this very fine album suggests, don’t be afraid, and don’t panic either! If you think this much-maligned genre reeks of stale patchouli, un-washed hair and trips to free festivals to see Ozric Tentacles whilst gorging on mushroom sarnies and cider then you’re missing the point.

Wooden Shjips – Dos (2009)waldo

Wed, 12 Aug 2009 16:06:13 +0000

Info: San Francisco’s enigmatically named Wooden Shjips play a minimal, droning brand of garage-styled psychedelia with a noticeable ’60s Krautrock influence. The band’s vocals slip beneath waves of throbbing minimal rhythms, while fuzz tone guitar and shrieking organs jump to the foreground. The idea was that untrained players would have a brand new outlook on […](image)

Baikonour – Your Ear Knows Future (2009)waldobai

Thu, 16 Apr 2009 23:17:06 +0000

Info: Baïkonour is the brainchild of one man, Jean-Emmanuel Krieger. Named after a town in Khazakstan, Krieger’s project combines electronic and post-rock elements with a deep appreciation for the versatility of the guitar. Krieger, who hails from France, currently resides in Brighton. His roots, however, have inevitably led to comparisons with groups like Air and […](image)

Edgar Froese – Ages (1977)waldo014928

Wed, 04 Mar 2009 17:16:59 +0000

Info: Edgar Froese is a great musician and a shrewd businessman. Realizing that he and his associates would need money to fund the progress of Tangerine Dream, he took advantage of both of those qualities and launched his solo career while Tangerine Dream was still in their infancy. That solo career has contributed many gems […](image)

Agitation Free – Malesch (1972)waldoagitation_free_-_malesch

Wed, 07 Jan 2009 17:35:46 +0000

Info: The debut album by Agitation Free followed a somewhat different path than your average Krautrock band, veering unexpectedly toward the Middle East, specifically Egypt, in search of atmosphere and material. Underneath the dueling guitars and spacy synth work, desert rhythms and taped sounds of dusky cities percolate, adding depth and spice to the otherwise […](image)

Glenn Branca – Lesson No. 1 (1980)waldolesson

Mon, 17 Nov 2008 15:33:10 +0000

Info: Lesson No. 1 was Branca’s first release in which he delved more fully into instrumental sounds that melded the dissonant rock of his former outfits with the heavy, massed sounds that he would later explore with groups of anywhere between ten and a hundred guitarists. Originally issued on 99 Records in 12” format, Lesson […](image)

Klaus Schulze – Picture Music (1975)waldofront

Fri, 26 Sep 2008 01:54:03 +0000

Info: Klaus Schulze had always wanted to compose “Picture Music”: Sounds like oil on a private canvas, journeys into foreign, emotional landscapes. Which is why you can consider the title of this record as a credo, which made its appearance during a period of change. While the two debut albums (“Irrlicht” and “Cyborg”) were mostly […](image)

Amon Düül II – Yeti (1970)waldo

Thu, 14 Aug 2008 11:44:01 +0000

Info: The second album by Amon Düül II (not to be confused with the more anarchic radicals Amon Düül), 1970’s Yeti, is their first masterpiece, one of the defining early albums of Krautrock. A double album on vinyl, Yeti consists of a set of structured songs and a second disc of improvisations. It’s testament to […](image)

Michael Rother – Flammende Herzen (1976)waldo

Sat, 02 Aug 2008 11:43:50 +0000

Info: In his solo career Michael Rother exactly reproduced the most meditative and floating textures of Neu! music. His colleague Klaus Dinger launched L.A Düsseldorf for radical, abrasive pop electronic projections. “Flammende Herzen” directly announces Rother typical guitar instrumentation with all these elegant repetitions and evocative, almost romantic ambient melodies. This album is a collection […](image)

Eroc – Eroc (1975)waldo

Tue, 03 Jun 2008 14:41:26 +0000

Info: Eroc (Joachim Heinz Ehrig) started his solo career in 1975 while he was currently the drummer of Grobschnitt. His self titled album can be considered as a cross between Gorbschnitt’s typical symphonic amazing music and electronic/ synthscapes dominated by numerous original sound manipulations. Despite that he was originally recognised as a drummer, here Eroc […](image)
