Harmonia & Eno '76
Tracks and Traces

Brian Eno called Harmonia "the most important band in the world". That title should really have already persuaded you to give this record a whirl but here's some background info anyway: in 1976 Eno holed up for eleven days in Harmonia's Cologne studio and recorded what was to become 'Tracks & Traces'. It's a superb collection of krautrock with inviting pastoral undertones and a sense of rigorous experimentalism. This reissue contains three previously unreleased songs that were only made possible because of modern tape cleaning equipment. Marvellous. Out on Gronland. 

Roedelius
Selbstportrait Wahre Liebe

A whopping four decades after he released his first ‘Self Portrait’ album in 1979, after which a further seven instalments followed in the time up until 2002, another instalment in Hans-Joachim Roedelius has arrived. Selbstportrait Wahre Liebe is a timely reminder of the power of the German’s solo work outside of Cluster and Harmonia. 

Hans-Joachim Roedelius & Arnold Kasar
Einfluss

The kosmische legend that is Hans-Joachim Roedelius (of Cluster and Harmonia) here collaborates with classical pianist Arnold Kasar. The resulting album Einfluss, released by the extremely ‘proper’ classical Deutsche Grammophon label, are a gorgeous waltz through lush piano melodies and shifting textures.

Roedelius
Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978

A distillation of the highlights of the 2014 compilation originally released in 2014 as 3LP + 3CD box set, comprising an audio ‘sketchbook’ of German electronic music composer Hans-Joachim Roedelius during the so-called ‘Forst years’ working closely with Cluster and Harmonia. Tape Archive Essence 1973-1978 boils the set down to an easily digestible single-disc release.

Michael Rother
Sterntaler

Grönland are currently in the middle of a Michael Rother reissue programme. 1978’s Sterntaler, the second solo LP released by the Neu!/Harmonia hombre, is one of those that has made the cut. As you might expect this is classique Motorik Krautrock, full of rumbling basslines and chirruping synthesisers.

Michael Rother
Fernwärme

Michael Rother’s 1982 LP Fernwärme stands out in the Neu!/Harmonia fellow’s catalogue for a couple of reasons - it was the first album Rother recorded without the aid of Conny Plank, and also saw Rother basing his compositions around the drumming of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit for the first time in several years. Despite having these new elements in play, the sound of Fernwärme doesn’t differ too much from Rother’s contemporaneous output. Think Jean-Michel Jarre with a Motorik beat.

Mueller_Roedelius
Imagori II

The second collaborative LP between Christoph H. Müller (Gotan Project) and Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Harmonia, Cluster) drops via Grönland. Much like 2015’s Imagori, Imagori II is a collection of deep, patient downtempo electronica in the !K7/Kompakt mould. Guests include Miss Kenichi and, on ‘La Vie En Bleu’, Müller’s own daughter. Cute.

Harmonia
Complete Works

Sadly (and inadvertently) timed to coincide with the death of core member Dieter Moebius, we have here the Complete Works of Harmonia. That’s a whole five albums by the pioneering komische-electronicists, including a live album and Tracks And Traces, their collaboration with Brian Eno. Grand deluxe vinyl box-set with all the trimmings.

Harmonia
Documents 1975

Unfortunately (and inadvertently) timed to coincide with the death of core member Dieter Moebius, here is a set of previously unreleased recordings by Harmonia. Documents 1975 has live and studio tracks never before heard by the komische-loving public, all bounced down to cassette tape. On Grönland.

Harmonia
Deluxe

Always good to have these German jewels in print. Gronland are reissuing the first two Harmonia studio albums, to the joy of all. The 1970’s group combined Cluster with Micheal Rother of Neu!: three professionals in the art of ascending to higher musical planes through shiny repetition. Deluxe has a fairly grotesque cover, but it otherwise superb.

Michael Rother
Flammende Herzen

There was great anticipation around the release of Flammende Herzen when it first emerged in 1977. People were eager to see what Michael Rother would get up to after Neu! had disbanded, and the inclusion of Can’s Jaki Liebezeit also added to the intrigue. The resulting record didn’t disappoint, hitting big with a combination of proggy composition, Krautrock invention and Motorik rhythm.
