4 stars Slowly I am falling in love with german folk rock music.

I know that one of the main instruments of rockmusic is the drumkit. But if Mike Oldfield and Jade Warrior can record entire symphonic prog records without drums, then other can do aswell.

The music of Bröselmaschine is pure folkmusic. Most folkmusic I know, is british, scottish, irish or scandinavian. I must say that I know very little folkmusic from continental Europe. But this is a very nice suprise. The band are very keen on harmony vocals and melodies and play their folky instruments very well. There's of course a lot of acoustic guitar, but very tasteful as are the vocals. I'm glad it's not too psychedelic or doomy like other folkrockbands from this period (like Comus). This is more pastoral and really beautiful music. It fits the german landscape. I can imagine walking through the forests and past the rivers.

Too bad they only recorded this one album. But any other band that fits this category I will track down. Right now I can only think of one other band that fits: Hoelderlin.

Recommended for people who like Renaissance, Jade Warrior, early acoustic Heart and of course Hoederlin.
