Sankt Otten are a krautrock duo who have reached the dizzy heights of their tenth full-length album. Every piece on Männerfreundschaften und Metaphysik grew out of in-depth studio improvisations with guitarist friend N on hand, and the results are pretty damn droney. CD / double LP release on Denovali.
9/10 Steve Customer review, 5th October 2016
Love this new record from Sankt Otten + N.
From the get off you can see why there's Sunn ((o)) references from other reviews. Then the second track Massiere Die Maschine starts and continues with a repetitive drum machine which Im hoping will never end this track is way too short at 12:43. This track feels like its been lifted from the Blade Runner soundtrack by Vangelis.
On the flip side Heile Welt really wouldn't be out of place on any of the Stars of the Lid albums. Every track on this album are stand out track. This album will be firmly planted on my turntable for the foreseeable future. The sound quality on this pressing is second to none. I had already listened to the full album on Sankt Ottens website which is why I bought this but the vinyl version breathes new life into the sound. The packaging is excellent and I absolutely adore the art work.
I recommend this even though the price is a little on the heavy side. Excellent release.
