4 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This Chilean trio of childhood friends—Diego Lorca, Juan Pablo Rodriguez, and Domingo Garcia-Huidobro—create trance-like music with deep roots in Hawkwind and groove-oriented Krautrock without turning completely motorik. The trio added electronic star Uwe Schmidt (a.k.a. Atom TM) on vintage Korg synths that were popularized by Kraftwerk in their live shows from the ‘80s. At just four tracks in 45 minutes, the album centers on meditative pieces, with only “Feuerzeug” breaking into guitar hero riffs during its generally space-aged jam. The other individual tracks hold onto their specific moods and slowly if ever shift shape. This is music designed for driving and for headphones.

A modern gift

Well i was never big on the Kraftwek style, and only a few Neu! songs, these guys bring to mind some of my favorite of the genre with minimal moterik. Certainly free-form elements of Agitation Free, and even some of the new versions of Faust I've heard. (Re:"Something Dirty") I have spent way too much money looking for original CD's from Germany, perhaps with this new generation of "Krautrockers" (Although in this case Peruvian), we have a lot to look forward too. After all, spinning discs from the early 70's- as good as they are- this fresh blood is most welcome.
