giving this album a fair chance for the first time tonight. those improvisations on the second platter are super cool.
what're some krautrock albums that /mu/ likes
Yeti's probably my favorite due to the sheer ambition present in songwriting and arrangement.
There's a bunch of stuff worth checking out with krautrock
You got your big three:
Can (Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi, Future Days)
Faust (Faust I and Faust IV)
Neu! (Neu! and Neu! 75)
^get back to Can and Faust for their unreleased and live stuff once you start caring enough about the genre
You got something more psychedelic:
Amon Duul II (Phallus Dei and Yeti)
Xhol Caravan (Electrip, Altena 1969)
You got something more jazzy:
Eiliff (s/t and Girls)
To Be (s/t)
You got more electronic stuff like:
Tangerine Dream (Zeit, Atem, Phaedra, Rubycon)
Harmonia (Musik Von Harmonia)
There's even more modern attempts at krautrock that aren't even necessarily German!
Radiohead - Kid A
Boredoms - Vision Creation Newsun
Aluk Todolo - Occult Rock
Oh shit yeah I forgot a lot of the earlier post-rock is krautrock, too.
I am so on the line about post Klaus Schulze since he goes into directions that are just electronic not even krautrock. Amazing discography either way.
I also forgot: check out Popol Vuh.
In Den Garten Pharao
Einsjäger und Siebenjäger
Letzte Tage Letzte Nachte
Die Nacht Der Seele: Tantric Songs
each of these albums has its own way of approaching Popul Vuh's ambient-like krautrock
Everything pre-Phaedra is more similar to krautrock with an electronic touch. Like their shit they did when they were on Ohr (of the albums I recced him that's Zeit and Atem.) After that they went full Berlin School Of Electronic Music, which itself is also an offshoot of krautrock.
I never said Rubycon was...it came out after Phaedra you do know that right so it doesn't come under pre-Phaedra and is again like everything Phaedra and after part of Berlin School. That's bullshit if you say it's not close to krautrock as that's ignorant to the roots in krautrock Berlin School had.
Agitation Free is nice. Also, Ash Ra Tempel (And Ashra), and Can.
