Sour Kraut Volume 2


6+ years since the first krautrock mix, here's Volume 2. Whereas the first volume featured mostly the better known bands from this era, this one concentrates on many lesser heard bands. I've included Faust again because... why not?!? I've also gone against my previous declaration of not having Can on any of these mixes, but this is one of their less familiar tunes, a 1972 recording which was previously unheard until the 2012 collection "The Lost Tapes" was released. Once again this was made using the program Mixmeister, and all the tracks segue from one song to the next, so this mix is best played in order. Enjoy!


  1. Michael Rother - Zeni (4:56)
  2. Cornucopia - Morning Sun (2:59)
  3. Thirsty Moon - Tune In (4:53)
  4. Between - Devotion (3:40)
  5. Faust - Party 9 (5:48)
  6. Cluster - Caramba (3:38)
  7. Annexus Quam - Osmose II (3:00)
  8. Dzyan - Electric Silence (4:22)
  9. Embryo - End of Soul (4:07)
10. Can - Bubble Rap (9:15)
11. Eulenspygel - Untertanenfabrik (3:51)
12. Popol Vuh - Selig Sind, Die da Willig Arm Sind (3:06)
13. Sperrmüll - No Freak Out (6:32)
14. My Solid Ground - The Executioner (3:27)
15. Kraftwerk - Heimatklänge (3:35)
16. A.R. & Machines - Als Hätt Ich Das Alles Schon Mal Gesehen (5:10)
17. Krokodil - Light of Day (5:19)

Coming next....

I've not been idle the past few months, I've been working on more compilations. The next bunch will be dedicated to Garage Rock from the 1960s. I doubt it'll be the size of my Oozings volumes but I'm currently putting together a "short"list of songs from all sources, either from already existing garage rock compilations or actual band albums/anthologies. Most garage comps are themed around certain continents/countries/cities but, like my Oozings comps, each volume will consist of songs from all over the world. 

Yes I know there are already 1000s of garage rock compilations already out there, but again like the Oozings comps I'm going to try and include many songs which are often overlooked, even from the more well known acts. Of course there will be more familiar tunes on each volume, songs that will always thrill no matter how many times you hear them. 


As a little taster, this track will be on the first volume...
