[Music] Flowers Must Die – Montana / Nusrat EP


 
The freaks at Höga Nord Rekords release yet another monstrously good EP, this time from Sweden’s mighty neo-Kraut rockers Flowers Must Die.  There are pulses and waves of heavy psych that remind one of Amon Düül II and Guru Guru.  Lovely stuff.

[Music] Säure Adler – Polnische Kassette

I don’t know if Säure Adler will ever surpass their Krautrock masters, but on this release, they’re really getting close.  This was one of the most enjoyable forays into tripsville I’ve had in a while.  It was nice to hear the floaty, beefy, textured tunes over a good set of speakers while relaxing before work.  Truly a pleasant experience.

Brazil’s finest shoegaze tribute label, The Blog That Celebrates Itself Records, returns with a compilation paying due homage to legendary Krautrock bands like Can, Neu!, (early) Kraftwerk and Harmonia.

[Music] Conrad Schnitzler & Bernhard Wöstheinrich – 20070709

Conrad Schnitzler was a legendary electronic music composer who passed away in 2011. Four years beforehand, he collaborated with a young fellow German musician called Bernhard Wöstheinrich, who was well over 30 years his junior. The collaboration produced one hour-long track which builds, grinds, throbs and swells in a way that is abrasive, yet pleasant.

The release is on Iatepus Media, and you can read notes from their album on the label site.

Can, recording a session for John Peel. I’m not sure what year this was recorded, but hearing it makes me a bit wistful over Peelie’s early demise.
