Minami Deutsch - With Dim Light (2018)
The second album from this Japanese band.
The band was a seven piece big band on this album with a lineup of synths, guitars, bass, drums and some sporadic vocals.
I am not a big fan of their 2015 self-titled debut album. You can read my review here and found out why.
At least, there is no bad demo attached to this studio recording on their 2018 album, their second album. That is progress and a very smart move.
Their music is krautrock. Guitars and bass based krautrock. There is some post rock influences here too. But that is a part of the krautrock they play.
There is a lot of Electric Orange influences here. And that is a good thing. Minami Deutsch take on krautrock is much more naked, though. Beat structures with the guitars and some synths on the top.
But this pretty naked music is working on this forty minutes long album. There is some good variations here and the music is indeed good. All fans of krautrock should check out this album.
