3 stars What does the word TRAUMMASCHINE remind you of? Yes maybe remember that trippy long track in Ash Ra Tempel's debut album.And a Spanish psychedelic / Krautrock / electronic act TRAUMMASCHINE might have named themselves after the famous song as their homage to Ash Ra Tempel. They've changed their sound appearance upon every single album, and this album 'Anomaria' released in 2008 can be a good example for you to understand all of their sound styles or points of view. Basically they create melody lines or sound material with electronic synthesizers or devices, and build their organic, artistic structure up by artificial pieces. The first long track 'Flames Solars' is a loud, dissected electronic weirdness flooded with hard-edged noisy tones and uptempo, unchained, unpolished dissonance. Uncomfortable sound ultraviolence like a ultrasound insect repellent should exactly be fit for the album title 'Anomalia'. On the contrary mysterious dreamy phrases sometimes pop up to the front of us. All moments would be made up fragilely. 'Caligine' is an acoustic guitar-origined acid folksy stuff seasoned with hallucinogenic, improvisational repetitions. Not so innovative but comfortable despite of the previous one. 'La Fira' is a quirky mixture of acoustic folk and electronic background. Inorganic chuckle / laughter and distorted harmonies can be called as Krautrock, I guess. "Kilowat-Heure' is another blend of convoluting phrase repetitions upon spooky electrometallic ground. "(El Fare) Una Corona De Coscoll' reminds us of the similar vein to heavy-psychedelic improvisation combos like Acid Mothers Temple. A very qualified psychedelia indeed, not felt so long. In the last 'Maroma' we can touch another ambience fed up with wandering electrons. Recommended if you want to look around their colourful variation only via one creation of theirs.
