Cozmic Corridors - Cozmic Corridors (1996)


The one and only album from this German project/band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of percussion, Hammond organ, Minimoog, effects, guitars and vocals.

The krautrock scene has given us a lot of one-off bands/projects. Entities who has released one album and then disappeared again without a trace.

Cozmic Corridors gives us forty minutes of loopy spaced out drone krautrock. Cozmiz krautrock or whatever they label it. Early Ash Ra Temple is a good reference.

There are some spoken words here on the top of the drones created by guitars, organs and keyboards.

There is still a lot going on in their music. It is not dynamic by any means. But there are some ideas here which is not bad at all. There is even melodies here..... some sort of melodies here.

The vibe is somber and dark. There is a lot here who reminds me about the dark droning music which comes out of Italy now and then. Goblin is a good reference.

This is by no means a good album. But it has some charm and a dark vibe. It is well worth checking out this album if krautrock and more cinematic music is your cup of tea.
