imagori ii GROENLANd 7/10 Clus­ter and Gotan project co-founders re­unite

With its unashamedly melodic bent, krautrock vet­eran and se­rial col­lab­o­ra­tor Hans-Joachim Roedelius’s sec­ond ef­fort with Christoph H Mueller picks up seam­lessly from their 2015 de­but. Ad­mit­tedly, “Mon­key Talk”, which echoes their first vol­ume’s open­ing ping-pong ef­fects, is un­usu­ally en­er­getic, but the qui­eter tracks – “Dau­men­walzer”, “Okapi” – are more dis­creetly com­pelling. “Ich Du Wir” could be a bell-bot­tomed Un­der­world, while “Frac­tured Be­ing”, with its breathy vo­cals, finds Roedelius’s oddly in­nocu­ous sound­scapes un­der­pinned by suit­ably un­der­stated dub bass.
