Marblewood - Marblewood (2014)

The debut album from this Swiss band and a Bandcamp download too.

Switzerland is not far away from Germany and I guess this band has been listening to both old and new krautrock. It is krautrock we get here. 

The music starts out as hard blues/psychedelic rock before the album takes a turn towards ambient krautrock with a lot of jazzy improvisations and electronica. The psychedelic stuff is really very good with a lot of hard, edgy guitar solos and guitar runs. The bass is rumbling around in the background and the drums follows suit. The vocals are also good. 

Not everything on this seventy minutes long album is very good though. The albums tails of after an hour and some mindless electronica and ambient music follows. I am not a fan of that.

The end result is an album which is somewhere between good and very good. The album should mean this is a band well worth following. I am keeping an eye on them. I give this album a good rating.

3 points
