Popol Vuh - Affenstunde (1970)
The debut album from this German krautrock band. I recently got their first ten albums and something tells me I am in for a very bumpy ride.
Popol Vuh is basically Florian Fricke's band. An electronic music pioneer in Tangerine Dream. This album is also all about electronic pulses with some tablas and a mellotron at the end. That's after this album has mostly sent me to sleep. I can get the same experience from a vacuum cleaner, hitting some pop corn and strawberry jam. I am not a fan of diddly-daddly electronic soundscapes and this album just falls flat on it's face. Don't bother about this album.
