The Independent Culture

A second volume of "krautrock"; 27 tracks covering the years 1971-83: Can, Faust, Neu!, Amon Düül II and lots of people you've never heard of, expressing the post-war counter-cultural German psyche with a sterling mix of bravery, innocence and playfulness: electronics, gasps, screeches, yells, blues-free guitars, repetition and more repetition.

Noise reinvented for pleasure. If nothing else, your children will get it. Like ludic, man. (And no Kraftwerk.)
