Eternal Tapestry - A World Out of Time (2012)

The fifth album from this Portland, USA based band.

We are deep into krautrock here. Krautrock in the vein of the first Can, Agitation Free, Guru Guru and Amon Duul II albums. In particular; Agitation Free. That is the main reference here. The sound is dirty. The music is based on bass, drums and some synths with guitars floating on the top of the mix. The guitars are both half acoustic and distorted. 100 % krautrock in other words. This album is like taking the time machine back to 1970. This is a retro album for the new millenium.

The music is pretty intense and retro. It takes some of the best from krautrock and recast it into this day and age. As I am a krautrock fan, this idea and album finds favours with me. There is no real great track here though and the album is a bit too much retro and similar to the old greats. But it is by all means a very good album and one well worth checking out.

3.5 points
