Various Kammerflimmer Kollektief Remixed
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Staubgold
Germany's Kammerflimmer Kollektief aren't post-rockists; they're the second coming of Kraut rock in the style of Neu! and Amon Düül II. Their liquid, improvised, cinematic avant-jazz-rock is confounding, mysterious, and often rewarding. Put these sounds in the blender with IDM's finest (David Last, Radian, Jan Jelinek) and the results can only be chin-strokingly remarkable. Things get cooking three tracks in with Néze's rhythmic "Lichterloh" rework. Then clicky, Herbert-esque beats ignite KK's broken piano and mournful horn arrangements before Jelinek turns the group‘s slow jazz into invisible audio ghosts, and Sutekh flips the dial to extreme sub-bass and crackle mode.
