Kluster is Cluster in an early form, with Conrad Schnitzler joining the Dieter Moebius / Hans-Joachim Roedelius duo we know so well. Klopfzeichen was their first release, and it presents a pretty stark experimentalism, unafraid to lean into the abstract. Intoned German lyrics on one track too. Reissue from Bureau B.
Cosmic psych trips abound in this electronically infused sitar classic. Okko was a well regarded virtuoso in his time and he lays it down on the Beatles' "Day In The Life", plus six of his own compositions. Although some of the grooves can become a tad repetitive, they may be just what you're searching for in this kind of record. "Ganges Delta" and "East Indian Traffic" have a more upbeat rock sensibility. "Himalaya Highway" and "Shivas Lullaby" offer a more meditative take on the '60s pop/Indian Classical music crossover sub-genre.
“Life is stranger than a dragonfly”, muses Nathan Hall of Cardiff’s Soft Hearted Scientists on this rather charming album of so-called ‘kitchen sink psychedelia’. Dragonflies are bloody weird though, aren’t they. Final answer, Nathan? Channeling the twee irreverence of Syd Barrett & co. a bit, this music sounds absolutely out of place in this day and age - possibly a great strength.
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of brutalist Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
