Rheinlust

A 2 track downtempo single (24m 16s) — released May 21st 2012 on Claremont 56

The non-vocal parts of the band Mountaineer have decamped for this spectacular Deutsche-bomb with two tracks that lay bare Fürsattl's love for a vintage German sound.

"Rheinlust" kicks off with a gentle, metronomic melody, a hefty kick and pulsing bass, and so it goes in that subtle hypnotic groove, gently introducing synths and washes of sound until you feel like you're on a German ring road in a Delorean.

On the flip the influences show again, with a nod towards Can, "Links Der Pegnitz" has a genius off kilter jazzy vibe with a hefty bass, genius guitar flecks and killer percussion. There is the edge of Mountaineer here with the delicacy of sounds, but the throbbing undercurrent sets these two tracks apart.

A brilliant 12" for anyone with an ear for classic Krautrock sounds.
