Volume 4 is also enjoyable

Sterolab dabbled.
Jane Weaver likewise.

Michael Rother is still performing...heard him on BBC 6music last week

I've always thought Cuttooth by Radiohead was one of their most underrated songs. They've cited krautrock as a huge influence on them (who hasn't been influenced by krautrock?) and Cuttooth has always felt the most Krautrock-y... Bodysnatchers too

From 2012, dancey-krautrock-ish, echoes of Neu! '75 ...me like:

This faux "lost material" from Kosmicher Läufer, "The Secret Cosmic Music of the East German Olympic Program, 1972-83" volumes 1-3 is simply delightful:

This is so good, found it recently and have been jammin it heavily.

Also been listening to this a lot lately, definitely Krautrock-esque at points.

Some great shit in here.

Surprised we've gone 6 pages and 8 years without (as far as I could see) any mention of This Heat. Some of the best to ever do it in my opinion.

They’re not Krauts.

Neither are the Velvets.

Or would anybody want to throw in a healthy dose of Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Van Der Graaf Generator or Renaissance while we are at it?

Yes you’re right none of them are krautrock, I agree.

all cluster records, this one is a favorite:

So lovely!

Some of my favorite Krautrock albums more on the Ambient side:







And all the classics of course. To pick three out:
Tangerine Dream - Phaedra
Harmonia - De Luxe
Deuter - Ecstasy

Yes, Phaedra is CRAZY good. I remember the first time I heard it.. I was on public transit on the way to a gig and I was bummed to turn it off to go to the gig.. was itching for the show to end to get back into listening to it haha. Total mind-melter!

Nice story. Phaedra always gives me goose bumps when I listen to it. A truly visionary record!

Still have my first pressing of the LP from 1974[?]

The latest from Cavern of Antimatter has some excellent work in the Neu/motorik style.

re. Phaedra
I remember playing it to my older brother and his wife and she found it creepy and disturbing.
I mentioned that to a musical mate numerous years later and he reckoned it was because there's no bass line, so it's unrooted.

Pointless trivia - a mate's girlfriend was called Phaedra - she wasn't named after the album, her Dad was an ancient history dude.

Just got turned on to Cavern of Antimatter recently. I wasn’t aware Tim was doing anything post-Stereolab (one of my all-time favorite bands) but really digging what I’ve heard so far! I can definitely hear the Krautrock influence here and there.
