The Day After The Sabbath 19: Kraut Rockin'

Download from [mf] or [mg]
pass:  tdats

This special volume features music from Germany, connected to the 'Krautrock' movement of the 70s. There's a mix of trippy instrumentals, English and German vocals, and some more conventional rockers. I have tried to stick to the more accessible end of the genre and shortish track lengths, except for the epic closer from 'My solid Ground', which is a great trip through all the moods they display on their eponymous album. The K.W. track here is quite a special thing indeed, it's taken from a 1971 Radio Bremen broadcast, before their wholly electronic incarnation. To me it sounds astoundingly like a Kyuss riff dictionary, as does the whole Bootleg it's taken from.

Thanks for listening! Rich
