Motrik Vinyl, CD & tapes by Motrik at Norman Records
Jealous Butcher have previously released records by The Decemberists, but we’ll forgive them for that if they keep dropping stuff as a good as this. Møtrik are a krautrock four-piece from Portland who stick to the genre’s principles. Motorik grooves, harmonically ambiguous synths, curious snippets of vocal, not much else. Opener ‘Impossible/OK’ sounds like that War On Drugs song that got played to death a couple of years ago, except this time it’s good. Simple stuff done very well, seven times over - that’s Safety Copy.
