Harmonia Documents 1975 on LP
Previously Unreleased Material from the Short Lived Krautrock Supergroup!
Few bands match the pastoral beauty and majesty of Harmonia, the short-lived German band that existed from 1973 to 1976. The krautrock supergroup, brought together Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of Cluster, and Michael Rother of NEU!, who were later joined by Brian Eno. Although Harmonia produced only two studio albums - 1974's Musik von Harmonia and 1975's Deluxe - they were very influential and perfectly embodied the krautrock ideal. While leaning slightly towards Cluster's ambient sound, they were also entirely their own entity - a jet engine running clean and precise but also spouting asphyxiating aural exhaust. Documents 1975 presents previously unreleased material from the group; two tracks recorded at their idyllic Forst studio and two live cuts captured at venues in Hamburg.
