3 stars Sounds like there are wonderful dream and magnificent hope around this creation veiled in such a compulsiveness and inorganic soundscape.

"Organon" - that means the strategies for getting theoretical consideration - has been released as BACKNEE HORN's 4th album. They've done mysterious musical studies in previous albums, and much more experimental trial (with traditional Krautrock flavour) has been exerted in this newest stuff. We surely get surprised and amazed in broken sound material and glassy electronic taps in such a fragile beginning of the first track "Music Increases ..." and they would never stop attacking with heavy, tribal percussion to access another dimension or another space. This mystic glitters, also in the following track "Login Spirit" (even with deeper, more spiritual trails), give us driving sickness ... sounds like a dim light of dusk can be seen over there. Their original footprints along with contemporary electronic / experimental ambience can be heard, but might notify us of oldie goodie Krautrock taste like Neu.

And oh what. "Digestive Scenarios" is a space electronic like Acid Mothers Temple blended with Pink Floyd-ish mellow psychedelia. Here is wonderful dream constructed with their inexpressive sound happiness. Very mysterious indeed, but this confusion should make such an experiment. "Robot Rides" reminds me of something like One Point Music (by Pekka Airaksinen) or Hoichi (by No Neck Blues Band) due to experimental inorganic sound electrons. But hey, why can their effector-based funky voices satisfy us? Another mystery. So, the last song "Without Pre Creation" should be called as one of their important stuffs compiled with their whole material. Religious, shimmering, rigid, metallic, ironic, nauseous, and heartwarming, flavoury ... various elements of sound are there. Sadly quite a little essence might let us digest their "music axis" incompletely owing to difficulty of qualitative and quantitative analysis. Oh yes, this is so-called Krautrock. Enjoy without any defense around your ears.
