Drosselbart - Drosselbart (1970)
The one and only album from this German band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of bass, drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals. Both male and female German vocals.
This band came, released one album (+ two singles from the album) and then disappeared again. They left us with an extreme obscure album.
Krautrock is the genre here and nobody would be surprised by that.
Their version of krautrock is a mix of beat music, some psych and some blues. That and some pretty standard rock'n'roll too.
There are a couple of halfway good songs here. Jemima is not surprisingly the first single from this album and a song which reminds me about Italian pop music.
The rest of the album has some decent stuff and charm.
This is indeed a charming album with a limited scope and appeal. The quality is simply not here.
Krautrock fans with lap up this album, I guess. It is an obscure album and that for a good reason.
