Germany, 1979, Krautrock
Günter Schickert – Überfällig: Well, this is an unsung goodie! Sure, it’s Krautrock, but there’s a lot going on underneath the surface—or rather above the surface, for that is just what this album does. It opens with water and ends that way, too, as if the music rose from the deep before submerging again. There’s a mild electronic element throughout, especially in the repetitive, hypnotic longer tracks. Also the field recordings scattered here and there work well with the breathing and vocal experimentation going on.
