4 stars SULA BASSANA is the one man project of Germany's David Schmidt. He definitely channels that Krautrock vibe very well. I couldn't help but think of what Roger Waters once said, that ideas were more important than virtuosity. When it comes to Psychedelic and Krautrock music especially that statement holds a lot of weight. This is David's debut album called "Dreamer" and it's fantasic !

"Dreamer" opens sounding very retro, very 60's actually with the organ,synths and drums leading the way. Vocals join in but it's the guitar before 2 minutes that's the highlight of this track. "Dealer McDope" is such a great title. Guitar to open as drums and a full sound arrive quickly. Spacey winds too before it settles around a minute. Organ and vocals after 1 1/2 minutes. It's very spacey late then it eventually blends into "My Blue Guitar". A trippy beat follows as the guitar soars. Love this track.

"Nervenlahmung" opens with sounds that hum and float. We start to get a rhythm after a minute. It stops after 3 minutes as it turns spacey. "Ananda" is spacey as a beat comes in. Some piano comes and goes as these strange sounds make noise over top. Sitar before 5 minutes. It kicks in unexpectantly before 9 minutes then settles again around 11 minutes. "Baby Blue Shuffle In D Major" is apparently an unreleased PINK FLOYD track. At least i've never heard of it. It has an unusual intro then it settles in with a trippy beat. Some mellotron too. Great sound. The guitar becomes prominant before 3 minutes and the sound gets spacier.

A solid 4 stars.
