Boomkat Product Review:
After nearly two decades and more than ten albums, Düsseldorf's Kreidler proudly carry krautrock's progressive traditions into the finely sculpted spaces of 'Den'. Sitting neatly in that lineage, their latest LP owes equal dues to the group's economic yet muscular musicality and the subtle spaciousness of production, carried out at Berlin's LowSwing studio facilities with Guy Sternberg. While their previous LP 'Tank' was perhaps most concerned with percussion, then there's more emphasis on the rendering of light and airy tones, airborne rhythms and almost exotic melody on this one. It opens with the hollowed dub glisten of 'Sun' where slow-baked chords rise over a resonant bass and swaying lattice of mesmerizing guitar from Alex Paulick, before surveying the Dieter Moebius-like drum structures suffused with glorious synth melody on 'Deadwringer' and the nervy, spindly strings of 'Rote Wüste'. At the album's apex 'Cascade' they're fluidly, flushly melodic too, with inquisitive chord changes keeping our interests alert and curious, while 'Moth Race' revels in swaying, dreamy polyrhythms and glassy harmonics. 'Celtic hosts' is an odd synth interlude, tempting us into dark turn of 'Winter', where kosmiche-minded guitar drone and electronics alarmingly give way to a hi-tech rhythm crafted from automated gunfire and slick sequencer patterns.
