Heavy lids and col­lec­tive con­scious­ness: Saar­louis’ psy­che­delic dream­ers

Now in their 15th year, Ger­man eight­piece Datashock have a pretty clearly pre­scribed modus operandi – long, slowly meta­mor­phos­ing im­pro­vi­sa­tions, lean­ing heav­ily on ei­ther drone or mo­torik rhythm. Kräuter Der Prov­inz opens as though it’s fallen off a clas­sic krautrock al­bum, the ti­tle, “Hullu Gullu, Wir Liefern Shizz”, a not-so-sub­tle hint as to its ground­ing in Neu!’s clas­sic tranced­out Dinger­beat. But things get far more mys­te­ri­ous soon af­ter – and by the time you’re in deep with Kräuter

Der Prov­inz, bathing in the spi­ralling elec­tron­ics and cos­mic co­in­ci­dences of cuts like “Halb-Halb, Wie Ein Guter Kloß”, well, time’s an ir­rel­e­vance.
