harmonia Deluxe (LP, £17.50)label: Gronland
Harmonia was formed in the early '70s by Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius of Cluster, together with Michael Rother of Neu!. Although this Krautrock supergroup produced only two albums, its minimalist sound laid the groundwork for ambient and motorik rock for decades to come. Leaning slightly more towards Cluster's sound of that band's second and last release, 1975's 'Deluxe' (here reissued on vinyl) features more structured songs, along with a sparse spattering of vocals, and a guest appearance of Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru on a few tracks.
