Jan Jelinek’s 2005 album ‘Kosmischer Pitch’ was to Krautrock what his 2001 album ‘Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records’ was to Blue Note. There’s hints of the original material here; though it’s more of a fleeting feeling. Jelenik plunders late 60’s/early 70’s German psychedelic Rock to crete something new from the debris. This isn’t Krautrock plunderphonics in order to make a faux-Krautrock replica, and it hasn’t been done to do a kind of Micro-House “update” of the Teutonic Motorik sound; instead, Jelinek has used the source material to make a multi-textured Ambient album. The album is like a fuzzy, analogue Paul Schütze; when Schütze is in the mood to wander off from the grid more often. This track is quite wired compared to the general feel o the album. However, it’s still a rather sedated mania, where one can feel oneself happily giving in to the lunacy as it sits at the end of a flower-littered forest path.
