Yes! This is great! A new double-LP from the German hippie-punk collective Datashock. This is a gleefully experimental semi-improvised krautrock epic. Considering that the tracks were performed live by a nine-piece band there's a real sense of pace and restraint and communication which is really engaging and it rarely gets cacophonous; the live instruments don't seem to even be introduced until midway through the first side, and their combination of live instruments and electronics kind of treads a middle ground between Supersilent and some of the recent US bands like Sunburned Hand of the Man or Raccoo-oo-oon. Sometimes it even brings to mind Hawkwind at their most out-there. It's deeply psychedelic but the songs don't outstay their welcome and there are enough hypnotic rhythms and subtle melodies to hold my attention. It's great to hear this style of explorative music played with such a combination of youthful exuberance and mature restraint. I can see this becoming a late-night staple in my house.
