Weserbergland - Sehr Kosmich Ganz Progisch

SKU 19-Apollon 004
This is a new project by Ketil Einarsen, who has played flute in Jaga Jazzist, Motorpsycho & White Willow.
This is sort of a very loving homage to 70s Krautrock and while it features a different cast on each song, drummer Mattias Olsson of Anglagard is on every track. Also featured are musicians from Gosta Berlings Saga, White Willow, Wobbler and more!
The retro Krautrock influence and sound is tempered by also having a strong element of Jaga Jazzist in the melodies; sometimes it's like 1975-era Kraftwerk or Harmonia playing an unreleased Jaga Jazzist album - which makes sense as JJ are also retro futurists at their heart! Very nice and recommended!

"“Sehr Kosmisch Ganz Progisch” by Weserbergland is an homage to the seventies krautrock scene seen through the eyes of Ketil Vestrum Einarsen. Ketil is a veteran flutist of the Norwegian Progrock scene, having been a part of White Willow for almost 20 years. He has also been a member of Jaga Jazzist and played on more than fifty albums, with bands like Motorpsycho and Geir Lysnes Listening Ensemble.
As a composer, he has written music for 10 documentaries and one TV series (all of this together with Lars Fredrik Frøislie (Wobbler, White Willow etc) “Sehr Kosmisch Ganz Progisch” is Ketil debut as a band leader. He has been a kraut rock enthusiast since he discovered the music through the record collection of his friend´s hippie father in the early 90s, so to take this musical turn was a very natural thing him. And it´s quite easy to hear the inspiration of bands like Tangerine Dream, Can, Cluster, Harmonia et cetera. But it´s not a retro sounding album, the sound is also influenced by Ketils former band, Jaga Jazzist and similar bands. The result is a very unique and demanding album. The simplicity of krautrock is juxtaposed or mixed with a complete sensory overload of multitracking, heavy use of effects and compositional techniques from contemporary or classical music."
