deutsche wertarbeit - Deutsche Wertarbeit
**Red Vinyl** Another superb reissue from Seattle's Medical Records, plucking Dorothea Raukes' '81 album 'Deutsches Wertarbeit' from Krautrock obscurity and resissuing it on red vinyl in a limited run of 500 copies. Dorothea was in a tiny minority of German frauleins to work in Krautrock circles, first with her Düsseldorf band Streetmark (she recorded four albums as their lead singerin between '76-'81) and later as a solo artist for Sky Records. She's responsible for all all the sounds on 'Deutsche Wertarbeit', finding an endearing blend of sensibilities, from the rhythm driven pop of the Neue Deutsche Welle to the spacey textures and ambience of Klaus Schulze. Her canny melodic character shines through cheeseball keys of 'Guten Abend, Leute', but doesn't shy away from darker tones like with 'Unter Tage'. Best of all is he proto-tranz glide of 'Auf Engelsflügeln', which is pretty much worth the cost of entry alone, while the electric grey drama of 'Intercity Rheingold' and 'Der Gross Atem' seal the deal. Really feeling this!
