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