On the head

Posted in Recording on 24/04/2012 by chrish

Dead Sea Apes make their second appearance on vinyl with the release of Head Music, a double-LP compilation of krautrock covers on Fruits De Mer records.  Our contribution, a rendition of the obscure Kraftwerk number Rückstoss Gondoliere, rounds off side 2.

Found voyaging the vast heavens, Dead Sea Apes’ monolithic re-scripting of Kraftwerk’s Rückstoss Gondeliere perhaps provides the set’s centrepiece. Sounding not unlike some chemically enhanced Spacemen 3 comedown, the Dead Sea Apes craft a deeply sedate cosmic symphony which cyclically shifts from moments of calm to full on wig flipped meltdown between the grooves, applying an awesome display of skull suturing sonics. – Mark Barton, The Sunday Experience / Losing Today
