- weltraumrückführungsübereinkommen by Von Himmel
Right. I was doing SOOOO well until I reached this. Immediately I loved it, the sleeve, the music...EVERYTHING. Now I have to BUY another record when I’VE TOO MANY ALREADY! I hate this job, it will be the death of me.
Von Himmel have made some albums and CDrs for little labels such as Donkey Disc and Humito. This is their first vinyl for Belgium’s Sloow tapes. I know little about them aside from the fact they’re a duo with seemingly daft names. The music they make is druggy, cosmic kraut-folk with astral drone and tribal elements replete with countless wild, experimental weird-outs, embellishments and seriously organic grooves!
From beginning to end, ‘weltraumrückführungsübereinkommen’ is so utterly alive with possibilities, otherworldly vibes and mad ideas. I’m genuinely feeling rather spangled whilst listening to side two of this wonderful record. There’s currently a really fucked-up meandering dub bassline, tumbling floor-percussion and some gorgeous flute action. Loads of mad shit panning from ear to ear too.
I am totally OFF MY FACE from listening to a record! Who needs drugs man? It’s a hippy record is this but nae a wet, drippy one. Too insane and beautiful for that! It’s exactly the kind of happy-smiley-spangled I get when I have a major session pigging out on Faust and genuine free-rock visionaries like Sand or early Popol Vuh. All the great Germans basically.
There’s not a great deal left to say about this tediously monikered recording other than you should just stick it in your cart right now. It’s my pick of the week, the sleeve art is all screened and is just cool as anything. What you waiting for suckers??
