#1029 Portishead – Third

Portishead release their third album Third in 2008. It was their first album in eleven years and their last one to date. The band took the music into a new direction of incorporating krautrock, surf rock, and doo wop. It was rated by many critics as the best album of 2008. I found it hard […]

#432 Holger Czukay – Movies

Holger Czukay‘s Movies is his second album. He was known for being one of the co-founders of the German Krautrock band Can. This is one of the weirdest albums on the list. It is not one that I would listen to again. It is a bunch of randomness mixed with crappy African rhythms. This is […]

1001 Albums #65

The Monks first album Black Monk Time was the only album they recorded. The album was released in 1966 and they disbanded a year later. From the minute the first song “Monk Time” begins I am thinking is this from the 60s. The music sounds like it comes from a later time period. It reminds me of EinstĂĽrzende Neubauten a German band […]
