Harmonia – Immer Wieder (1975)

Harmonia - Deluxe (1975)

Mmm, some more Michael Rother for you.

This is Harmonia’s second release just before Rother hit the studio to record NEU!’s ’75. Brian Eno joined them for their next release (Tracks and Traces (1976)).

Harmonia’s lineup was a match made in heaven: a perfect mixture of NEU! (Rother) and Cluster (Moebius and Roedelius). Wikipedia references them as a “Krautrock supergroup,” and quotes Eno as saying that they are “the world’s most important rock band.”

Deluxe was a departure from the trio’s first release Musik Von Harmonia (1975). It’s much more of a solid sound with smoother melodies.

It’s a long track (9:43), but definitely worth the full listen, as they fit quite a few movements into it.

Pom PomMatthew Dear has a new 10 inch record coming out Tuesday with a few different style remixes from DFA’s The Juan Maclean for the Pom Pom single off his latest album Asa Breed. The 10 inch vinyl can be picked up on his tour dates with Telefon Tel Aviv. The guitar is pretty gnarly in the track but what I love about it is the breakdown and the build back up. Since I put up the pretty downtempo psychedelic cuts from Harmonia(which i can’t get enough of) and DJ Shadow I had to pair up the Pom Pom track with an old favorite of mine which is this Skatebaard track who recently was on DFA’s Supersoul compilation. Enjoy.
