Boomkat Product Review:
The tireless Bureau B dig out and dust down another gem from the Roedelius catalogue for a top-quality reissue; this time it's Momenti-Felici, originally released in ’87 on Virgin's Venture imprint. It's notable for its contributions from saxophonist Alexander Czjzek, which when combined with Hans-Joachim's breezy keyboard chords on 'Guten Morgen' inevitably put us in mind of Vangelis. It's one of HJR’s most charming and organic records - beginning with the clustered (no pun intended) piano arpeggios of 'Aufgewacht', which has a similar rural fantasia vibe to, say, Penguin Cafe Orchestra. But for us our Roedelius is invariably at his best when summoning (consciously or otherwise) more sinister forces: witness the forlorn space drift of 'Pas de Deux', Czjzek's swaying sax coming coming over in distinct Twin Peaks style, or the sombre, cylical psychedelia workout 'Vor Ohren' (think Emeralds if they were an all-acoustic ensemble). Closing epic 'Molldau' is one of the most unique and stirring pieces in the whole Roedelius catalogue - our man sailing gloomily romantic jazz piano sequences over a sea of phased, cinematic synth drone. Sublime stuff, to be sure.
