DEUTSCHE ELEKTRONISCHE MUSIK 3 SOUL JAZZ, OUT NOW Third help­ing of cos­mic ’ 70s West Ger­man rock.

This lat­est in­stal­ment of Soul Jazz’s top-drawer se­ries of Teu­tonic rock and elec­tronic mu­sic is the best – and most out-there – yet. Usual sus­pects such as Neu!, Clus­ter and Popul Vuh de­fine the free­wheel­ing, proggy art-rock of the era, but it’s lesser-known tal­ents such as Michael Bundt and the won­der­fully-named Mis­sus Beastly whose ever-mu­tat­ing, fu­tur­is­tic space-rock shines bright­est, as if to of­fer a way of look­ing be­yond their coun­try’s trou­bled past with sheer mind-blow­ing ad­ven­tur­ism. SI­MON McEWEN
