Kreidler – Tank (2011)

While the British scene still suffers the trauma of The Beatles or even worst, uninspired kids are sweating reproducing the riffs of Iron Maiden from the 80s, the originally humorous term of “Krautrock” still bring to the surface interesting products. Bands like the two fraction of Faust released very intense materials lately, “Faust is Last” last year from the group of Jochen Irmler, Lars Paukstat, Steven W. Lobdell, Michael Stoll and Jan Fride and this year Jean-Hervé Péron and Zappi W. Diermaier with contribution from British artists Geraldine Swayne and James Johnston released “Something Dirty”.
Kreidler was founded in 1994 in Dusseldorf and they combines electronic and analog instruments to create a blend of Post Rock with Electronic Music. Maybe their not at the same level of creativity as Tangerine Dream, Faust, Can, Amon Düül II or Ash Ra Tempel, but still, their tenth album is a nice intercourse in the good old Krautrock traditions and holds some interesting moments for the listeners.
We’ve got 6 instrumental tracks, a smooth journey between some nice traditional Psychedelic and Avant-gard Rock resounding and some newest Electronic sound infusions. It may not be revolutionary, but it still works better than most of the senseless Indie and Post Emo shit the market is full with it.
