8/10 Robin Staff review, 15 October 2015
Seems like you guys are already knee-deep in this distance, so far be it from me to explain the latest offering of psych drone to you. Kosmische is washing like waves on ‘Eins’, a definitely synthy record that sees rhythm and ambience as opposite seats at the same dinner party: rumbles, squeaks and languishing layers, all compartmentalised to create a hypnotising hum. You know the deal, but might be surprised by the watery confines this record exists in: there’s a muddiness afforded by the works of Expo 70, busying the hum of a stilled Helvete record.
While this record is humming with effects as minute as hardworking insects, Farbfelde only clarifies these works with melodies for the sake of structure: “Magnetophon” ends with a sweet synthline that’s carried through the whole piece, but only becomes properly noticeable on its own as the song reaches its attempt at a cadence. The second track feels dubbier, with beats hidden neatly in a long hallway of swirling ambience. On final track “Unterwasser”, Farbfelde shows that his calling is longform -- away from his usual industrialising, his tracks need expanse so that each little snapshot of musical imagery can rise, fall and seethe.
