Backnee Horn biography
An Israeli combo BACKNEE HORN got started as an experimental rock trio in 2006, founded by Rudi J (drums), Yevgeny KUSHNIR (guitars), and Shimon AFRIAT (bass, keyboards). A mellotronist Zohan COHEN joined later and in the middle of 2009 their first eponymous album was released. After Alex FURMAN and Rogi NINIART replaced Shinon as a keyboardist and as a bass / synthesizer player respectively, the quintet launched their second double album "Backnee Horn II" in 2011 (and a vinyl version in January 2012), that is more of extremity than the previous one. Sadly Yevgeny and Zohan left them but they, as a trio as in their early days, have kept on working for newer material recorded in their own studio named Head-Lee. Their third album "Backnee Horn III" was released in November 2012 as a "triple" vinyl filled with borderless inspirations.

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.

4 stars BACKNEE HORN is an experimental outfit from Israel which offers some really challenging stuff, you bet! This atmospheric psychedelic/kraut debut is their most accessible output I'm aware of. Drummer Rudi J. seems to have things in hand when it comes to this crew. Getting close to German act Instant Drone Factory his vocal contributions are simply exceptional, very very special. And yes, this overall sounds like reflecting a time travel, like recorded for a sci-fi movie somehow, featuring a story taking place 30 years further or so. What means I'm writing about something unusual for my ears, though certainly appealing. And the best thing about this ... now we can be sure, the beloved Mellotron makes it, definitely will survive!

The songs are strung together like pearls to a chain, the instrumental interaction is priceless. Drums and bass are often serving a decent groove like on Outleting Storming Particles or Multiple Streaming Encounter, but this is also comprised of meandering hallucinated sections pointing to the strong avantgarde approach which they develop with their following albums. Hereby they are weaving a thrilling flow, no way to guess what will follow next. I'm inclined to say that this is fully composed, but who knows? On Far Away But Close the guitar playing reminds me of John Martyn, who often enough has surprised as a visionary when it comes to his live performances.

Where the following band albums are way too strange according to my taste, this one knocks my socks off really, an outstanding band outing. Very unique - never heard something like that before. The restrained backing mellotron emphasizes the general impression - here we have a wonderful melancholic album, a beauty consisting of matured songs recorded by skilled musicians - 4.5 stars.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
