Klaus Johann Grobe’s debut 10” quite rightly grabbed our coveted Single of the Week trophy when it came out a few months ago so it’s nice to see to see that they’re back with a new 7” this week. The first side opens with a kind of rinky-dink organ sound which made me wonder whether this was even the same band, but before long they settle into a relentless minimal drum groove, bubbling basslines and warm layers of analogue synth which confirms that these are indeed the very same kraut revivalists who did that excellent EP. This track has a less mechanical feel to it than the previous release though. It’s practically a pop song.
Flip it and there’s ‘Stoppen’ which is much more on the kraut revival tip with a simple Neu-esque cowbell led beat, and repetitive bass and organ shapes over a vocal line which cleverly mixes tape echo with actual repeated vocals, and sometimes there’s blink-and-you’ll-miss-it little ascending bit which I suppose you’d call the chorus. And the middle eight has some kind of sampled screaming and echoey spoken word. The mind boggles as to why this one wasn’t the A side. Both good songs though!
