    Whoa. Third Man Theme. I'm listening to Neu! Radio on last.fm and they were one of the bands on it. This song called "Bridge to Bridge." Apparently the band is comprised of members from lots of the giants of the genre, but I had never heard of them until now, and it doesn't appear they released much material.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but Decimus is totally hitting the krautrock spot for me right now. it's not straight kraut by any means... but it definitely has that groove bubble up consistently. Totally loving it.

    4 of the Decimus pieces are up on ?, all FLAC though. Sounds like some serious audiophilia.

    According to their website they're a new band and they've released one EP on bandcamp with that song on it. I don't recognize any of the players, but I'll check it out.

    Holy cow. I listened to this album for the first time today and it knocked me the fuck over. First time listening to the band, too. It wasn't at all what I thought it would sound like, I've always seen Tangerine Dream labeled as electronic or krautrock, the latter which it may have technically been, but this album seemed to have much more in common with that Parson Sound album that Still-Ill posted in his record club thread than with the repetitive percussion of bands like Neu! or Kraftwerk.

    But yeah, this album is completely fantastic.

    After seeing someone on the internet saying it was his favorite krautrock album, I gave this a spin yesterday:



    And uh, it's not terrible, but it's pretty typical late 70s stuff from the genre it seems. Others might be able to chime in who know more, but I'm under the impression Ashra was more or less Göttsching's solo moniker after Ash Ra Tempel broke up?

    Pretty much yeah. Some of the Ashra stuff is incredible. New Age Of Earth especially. I'll have to listen to Correlations again to see how I feel about it.

    Admittedly much closer to psychedelic rock than krautrock, but I just discovered this band called Sweet Smoke and they're the shit.

    So holy fuck you guys, this album Tarot by Walter Wegmuller is a trip and a half. Such a crazy krautrock record from the 70s, combining the Can/NEU!/Faust groove-rock stuff with the Tangerine Dream/Cluster/AshRaTempel ambient stuff. It's long, the vocals suck, there are weird chants and drifty moments, and it's one of the most awesome listens I've ever had. Apparently it's impossible to find a physical copy of this in any format, but it's well worth downloading to hear one of the more mystifyingly great psychedelic records of all time.

    June 1 in LA : http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?368097

    Opening the 2012 Summer Season at the Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, Dublab and Goethe-Institut present a night of Krautrock Classics, with performances from Nite Jewel & Peanut Butter Wolf covering Kraftwerk's 'Computer World' in its entirety, along with Carlos Nino, Daedelus, Dntel, Sun Araw, Pharaohs and many more covering their favorite Krautrock classics.

    LINEUP:
    Nite Jewel & Friends (featuring Peanut Butter Wolf, Secret Circuit, Nedelle Torrisi from Cryptacize, and Cole MGN) performing Kraftwerk's "Computer World" in its entirety.

    Carlos Nińo & Friends (featuring, Dexter Story, Diana Booker, Gaby Hernandez, GB, and Surya Botofasina) covering Popol Vuh.

    Pharaohs & Friends (featuring Suzanne Kraft, Stellar Rahim, Ulrich Krieger, David Scott Stone, Cloudland Canyon, and Andres Renteria) performing an excerpt from Manuel Gottsching's "E2 E4."

    Plus: Dntel, ESP, Daedelus, Sun Araw and White Magic

    dublab DJs Turquoise Wisdom and Michael Stock (Part Time Punks) will be playing at the Edison Plaza from 6pm to 8pm and during intermission.

    All the artists that are part of the Krautrock Classics concert have a direct connection and a clear influence in their sound that is owed to German bands and solo musicians from the Krautrock period. Many have expressed in interviews the impact artists like Harmonia, or La Dusseldorf have had on their records. Although all the bands that are participating do have their own styles, and in most cases, they are even considered as part of different genres or scenes, there's a "cosmic sound" that unites them and a common approach to music production and composition that shows their shared love for this music known as Krautrock.

    Ooooooo Nedelle. She is so fuckin' cute and nice. Played in Sufjan's band when they did Seven Swans at ATP and I ate dinner with them.

    Oh yeah, and that show looks awesome.

    I just finished the first disc, what a trip. Completely insanity while maintaining a definite sense of coherence throughout.

    They have a 2012 release called Mango Sunrise which is also very good. Seems like a band Moogfest would book to me.

    Listening to this right now after seeing it on The Quietus' year-end list. Overall a bit too one-note to have much staying power, but it's an interesting listen regardless:

    Fille Qui Mousse - Se Taire Pour Une Femme Trop Belle



    There was an article on The Quietus last week where Cate Le Bon listed her 10 favorite albums. One of them included a little bit she had to say about this album: "I sometimes struggle going to record shops as they are often overwhelming, but in Permanent Records everything was in its right place and the staff would write little notes on the records. There was a sticker that said, "Do you like Faust IV? Then you will love this record!" That was enough for me, so I bought it."

    It sounded intriguing so I checked it out today. It fucks around a lot without any real direction it seems for a lot of the time, but when it clicks it really clicks. I mean, just listen to this:

    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum
    10/10 - Thurston Moore/Sebadoh - Echoplex (?)
