Today we’re listening to Harmonia, a krautrock band that formed in Forst, Germany, in 1973. Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius of the band Cluster joined forces with Michael Rother of Neu! The trio recorded motoric ambient music, where minimalist tracks repeat and repeat but nonetheless convey the sense of progress. Their 1974 album, Musik von Harmonia, is a mostly uplifting and optimistic record with phase-shifted analog loops. We’re also playing Live 1974, an hourlong jam session with mainly synthesizers and a drum machine. The two records were reissued by Groenland Records in 2015 and 2007 respectively.
Have a wonderful Thursday.
