Boomkat Product Review:
Krautrock revivalists Phantom Horse come correct with their fourth album, bringing the cosmic experimentation of Cluster, Tangerine Dream's glassy soundtrack work and JD Emmanuel's DIY minimalism into the same sonic space.
Over their last three full-lengths, Ulf Schuette and Niklas Dommaschk have proved more than capable of crafting the kind of astral-traveling Krautrock that barely exists any more. Sure, there are plenty of bands nabbing the motorik beat and calling it a day, but Phantom Horse do things differently, reanimating a similar mind-altered mood as "Zuckerzeit"-era Cluster, all rolling beatbox rhythms and sweaty synth cycles.
"Mehr Null" continues this tradition, exploring the limits of their sound and pushing into similar territory as Texan new age synth don JD Emmanuel or even Klaus Schulze at his most kosmische. Most of the tracks here are extended jams, allowing loops and melodies to rise and fall with the efficiency of trance but the glassy, euphoric mood of Tangerine Dream's soundtrack work. It's expertly crafted stuff, harking back to simpler times without relying completely on empty nostalgic tropes.
