SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars With Brainticket and Drum Circus, Krokodil are spaced out krautrockers coming from Switzerland. Psychedelic tapes is a collection of early unreleased materials. this compilation cearly represents the multi facets of the band, from gorgeously epiphanic enchanting-ethno folk to bluesy-fuzzy kraut jams. The musical pieces are immediate and efficient psychedelic vehicules, largely instrumental and hyper active. The sound aesthetism and musical tendances are very closed to their classic "an invisible world revelaed". It embraces the wild-spacy tribal hippie genre of bands such as Amon Düül II, Kalacakra or Siloah but the proggy moments are much more accomplished with impressive ethno-rockin arrengements. "The creator has a master plan" is a freaked out improvisation which incorporates sensual-bucolic exotic harmonies and sonic tones. Stehaufmädchen Part 1is a dreamy-like, floating acoustic interlude before to carry on the eccentric, endlessly bluesy-kraut jamming Marzipan. This piece perfectly restitutes the dynamic and propulsive atmosphere of the band on stage. Stehaufmädchen Part 2 is a garagey blues rock song, no surprise. You're still a part of me follows the same musical path. Their classic piece Odissey in om is presented as a live version. Stehaufmädchen Part 3 is the highest point here, a lovely and detached psych-atmospheric ballad, including slowing moving melodies with nice bluesy touches. This album is a pleasant listen despite that it doesn't bring anything new. It remains a best off, providing a good selection of Krokodil's alternative versions of their classics and obscure songs.
