Korb's selftitled debut LP was originaly released in 2018. Two-and-a-half years later, there now is a new issue of this stunning album available via Peruvian label Necio Records. That is reason enough to alk about an album that should receive more attention if you ask me.
The eight songs on this instrumental release are defined by dizzy wellbeing and joyful weightlessness. Korb's music is a mesmerizing mix of traditional Krautrock, Neo-Kraut and Space Rock. The themes of the album are set in a futuristic environment somewhere in outer space. Like in a Science Fiction film, the band explores realms that withdraw from our contemporary comprehension. Korb are time travellers who show us pictures of worlds unknown to us.
The images that the music displays are fantastic, calm and peaceful. Korb's Space Kraut is as hypnotizing as the sky at night. And yet the sounds are highly motivating and make you wanna explore distant galaxies in a tiny ship right now. This album is a hot recommendation, not ony for fans of Here the Captain speaking, the Catain is dead or Zement.
