Re: Nils Frahm's new album

I heard on interview with him on npr yesterday, never heard of him before, but enjoyed what I heard. He has a live film out or something and saw the audio is available on Spotify.

Re: Favorite Krautrock-er solo albums?

Has the K word been cancelled now? I missed that meeting. I'll lock away Faust IV and Rot to be safe. I'm just a very casual Faust listener but this quote I read on Wikipedia years ago amused me to the point of wanting to like them more. "Meifert was sacked shortly afterwards because, as Peron wrot...

I know I'm a hater but what's all that ugly typeface on the faceplate? It's very distracting. I tried to watch the demo but it made me cringe.

Re: Favorite Krautrock-er solo albums?

I would like to apologize for starting this thread with the use of the derogatory term "krautrock" it has only recently been brought to my attention that the labeling of it as such has a direct lineage to the propaganda machine that came out of the Marshall Plan. It has been suggested to me that we ...

Re: Favorite Krautrock-er solo albums?

Just gonna put this here for anyone that hasn’t heard it. The Cluster duo of Roedelius and Moebius with Michael Rother. Whole album is wonderful, but this long track has always been special for me. I have the original Brain release on vinyl, quite a valuable album now. Their followup, “Deluxe” is a...

I've always felt somehow inadequate for never getting Krautrock. At least you recognise it :hihi: I jest....it surprises me you don’t like it!

Swiss mountains. Electricity and internet available but I’m going to isolate and be focused on creation only.

Re: Favorite Krautrock-er solo albums?

This Rother album is a bit of a departure, I'm enjoying it greatly on a dreary day, rather upbeat. So much of his work seems to have gone unnoticed or just unwritten about.



Full album is available on Sodify BTW.

Re: new sam prekop record, based on a modular

I've been a Prekop/Sea & Cake fan for many years, so I'm a bit biased. But I really like this record. It's warm and melodic and full of colour. It's really well put together and sounds great imho. 'Approaching' is a beautiful track which reminds me of 70s era Cluster. That song does sound a bit lik...

Kevin Shields recorded Loveless in mainly mono in hopes it would sound more or less the same on both a hifi or shitty boombox: I wonder how streaming on a good sound system compares to listening to a CD on a crappy system? I think the mono / stereo dimension is a separate discussion. In fact, perha...

Fun thread. I'm hoping one of our resident graphics whizzkids will work up a When Will I Be Famous module. Alternative is you sit on the floor on a persian rug surrounded by modular synth. Fame will be yours, just don't forget reverb and delay. Uh, I thought specifically it must be a kilim rug heav...

Re: What's the best module to be famous?

I heard an interview with Hugh Grant today and he said that George Clooney sleeps in a closest or something in his villa on Lake Cuomo because it makes him feel cozy and swaddled in those memories of being poor.

Anyways, isn't buying modules a way to not accumulate wealth?

Re: Indian Classical Music

I think you’re thinking the word “classical” means western. It doesn’t. I do not. I do think that the word comes with a lot of Western presumptions which causes other musics to be judged on the values of Western music rather than their own, as in the question posed by the OP. Well, I think my quest...
