Electric Orange
With the release of their new album, Krautrock From Hell, a great psychedelic experience, I was thinking we could look back into their back catalogue and mention our favourites and recommend other albums of theirs.

Their PA bio:
ELECTRIC ORANGE are a german (neo) krautrock band, mainly based on two masterminds Dirk Jan Müller (keys) and Dirk Bittner (guitar). Up to now both musicians had uncounted collaborations during their development and produced a huge amount of material on MC, Vinyl and CD-R. Besides some temporary flirts with house/techno elements the band actually deliver trippy krautrock adapted music, cheerful electronic like Tangerine Dream or Popol Vuh as well as provided with obsessional rhythms near to Can or even Kraftwerk.

ELECTRIC ORANGE's latest releases are mastered by Eroc (Grobschnitt). In the year 2007 'Morbus' appeared and received exciting reviews. The band provide an irresistible blend of hypnotic beats and rhythms, soaring organ and synths, spacey guitars, recitatives, samples, analogue effects.

In 2009 ELECTRIC ORANGE decided to offer the first DVD release 'Live On The Psychedelic Network Festival 2007' featuring a complete show from 2007 in Würzburg as well as other recordings from a period between 2005 and 2008. And then at the beginning of 2010 the band released the new production 'Krautrock From Hell' which perfectly links to the predecessor album with seven new spaced out songs ... all you might expect as significant for a (modern) krautrock sound.

2010


I myself only have 4 albums of theirs, their last 3 (including the new one) and Abgelaufen!.
So far, it's a toss between Morbus and Krautrock From Hell. I'd probably go for Morbus for being the most consistent.
However, in Krautrock from Hell, the 25 minutes Neuronomicon is a delight to experience.

Another band that I've never heard of and it looks like I'm not the only one. Ermm

nice one, Assaf Smile
being rather familiar with this band it's more difficult to decide ... actually impressed by 'Krautrock From Hell' I tend to assign the masterpiece rank here

still have their DVD on the backlist .. had a quick look and it's quite promising .. and I'm sure this is not the end Wink

Yeah, I read your review for Krautrock from Hell, Uwe, good one, made me get it Thumbs Up

Here's a track from Morbus for those curious to hear the band and not just comment on not knowing them:

Yeah, I'm with you on that. Heard both today, really terrific psych experience, it really helps me focus at work, not sure why.


To all those who voted as well, please post as well and tell us about your experience with this band; as you can see from the first response, there are those who don't know the band (and maybe doubt the necessity for such threads) and who will benefit from your posts.

unfortunately Josef Ahns (guitar, flute) has left the band at the end of last year - now they are a quartet ... but I don't think for too long

a big loss - his contributions should not be underestimated ... especially the flute elements have been significant for the band's style ...

The debut isreally exc ellent, sounding like a harder-edged Ozric Tentacles

Morbus. I wish that they were more accessible over here in the USA. Too much money to drop on a CD.
