4 stars The title says it all - this has been recorded live, at Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Eh ... okay, it's a bit inaccurrate somehow as they also offer a live take from Helsinki 2013 here. But never mind! Who cares? This one completes the fine double vinyl, showing atmospheric trips overall. So here we have four scores, if you will, some are devided in several partitions, which you won't notice though when listening. Each vinyl side develops in one go, where you can sum this up under the label Kosmische Musik at best.

Some distinctive conspicuousness is to remark when it comes to this E-Musikgruppe hailing from Finland. For example they are not reduced on analog and digital synthesizers solely, at least as long as Kimi Kärki uses his electric guitar as well. And he extensively does for sure, even adding a slight acid note in some cases. Besides the band name also the track titles are in German, which might be appointed as a clear reference to their main influence, the almighty Berlin School based electronic music.

And indeed, this partially sounds inspired by Tangerine Dream and Manuel Göttsching related acts in particular. Though equipped with enough distinctiveness to arrouse attention amongst hundreds (thousands?) of acts trying to compose electronic music. Die Suche Nach Dem Horizont is exemplary, provided with a looping beat and ambient/spacey patterns. Synths and guitars are playfully alternating with solo excursions, until the scene changes again into a gorgeous relaxed flow. This album will need more than one go to explore the beauty in total. Recommended!
