Boomkat Product Review:
Reinhold Friedl’s indomitable Zeitkratzer ensemble tackle more songs from Kraftwerk’s early pair of “kraut” styled albums in drivingly muscular and psychedelic fashion.
Back before Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter turned into robots, they chimed into the whole Krautrock movement with their self-titled debut and its follow-up ‘Kraftwerk 2.’ The albums have notoriously never been reissued and remain a surprise for anyone only familiar with their later, seminal, all electronic recordings. Following Zeitkratzer’s first volley of takes on songs such as ‘Ruckzuck’ and Klingklang’ from said LPs, they return with four further takes on those albums’ tracks, reinvented in a way that displays the fearless unit at their most joyful and driven.
Zeitkratzer personnel: Frank Gratkowski (flute, clarinets) / Hayden Chisholm (flute, saxophone) / Hild Sofie Tajford (french horn) / Hilary Jeffery (trombone) / Reinhold Friedl (harmonium, piano) / Didier Aschour (guitar) / Maurice de Martin (drums) / Lisa Marie Landgraf (violin) / Biliana Voutchkova (violin) / Elisabeth Coudoux (violoncello) / Ulrich Phillipp (doublebass)
