VA - Kraut! Demons! Kraut! - German Psychedelic Underground 1968 - 1974
Ongakubaka updates from Kalamazoo have been sparse to say the least. Good news: I'm finally done with classes and currently unemployed so now I don't have anything better to do. I was going to post the new Big Business record, but after it leaked I gave it a listen and decided it wasn't worth the five minutes it would take me to put it up on here. Alright, maybe it isn't that bad but I had higher expectations. Maybe I should actually write something about the album I'm posting. Like many albums on my hard drive, I accidentally downloaded Kraut! Demons! Kraut! from some windowlicker on Soulseek who happened to have good taste in music, but lacked the mental capacity to figure out how to organize his files properly. I'm giving the guy a free pass because this record is so interesting and has a ton of variety. While nothing here reaches the quality of more well known acts like Can and Neu!, the comp does provide an excellent snapshot of a chapter in the history of psychedelic rock that most music fans are oblivious to. Plus you get to hear people with ridiculous accents sing about smoking weed and touching the hand of God. Can't go wrong with that.
