Minami Deutsch - Minami Deutsch (2015)


"Their sound is influenced by both their love for Krautrock legends such as Can and Neu!, and the band members being self-professed "repetition freaks" who heavily listen to minimal techno. The music proceeds straightforwardly with the Motorik beat (Hammer beat), devised by Klaus Dinger (Kraftwerk, Neu!), as its central axis. Humorous, yet bizarre Japanese lyrics are whispered over a hard, cold beat that is maniacally repeated, creating a pleasant ambience of electronic pulses drifting in space. Sharp guitar tones reminiscent of Michael Karoli (Can) occasionally explode into fuzz distortion, on the verge of collapse..." - Bandcamp

  1. Drummer Hikari Sakashita has also played with Tolchock

    It's odd - never been a Can fan - and *everybody* I play this for shouts "CAN!!!" - but MD absolutely works for me.

    Guruguru Brain FTW.

    1. My first thought when I heard them was Neu! with their motorik beat. Can influence is certainly there but it's not as straightforward.

    1. I love all these neo-kraut bands that stay true to the original and still manage to sound fresh.

  4. I'm a big Neu/Can/Rother fan, and they've done a great job of capturing the sound, but somebody should've played 'hide the mic' with the vocalists. You gave us track 4 which is the best on the album, but track 6... - the singer just totally sabotaged the cut.
