In unique interactions SPECK combines the repetitive, driving character of krautrock and the limitless, psychedelic sound spectacles of space rock with a lot of energy, dynamics and unexpected twists. What is special about this work is its incredible freshness. The band's sound is more mature, more sophisticated, richer.
This time it was deliberately recorded entirely at home. Sounds were created that may sound familiar at first, but now also make many things clear that were previously hidden. You can hear the vibration of the skins, feel the motor of the bass, anticipate the step on the wah pedal and the energy , which bundles together and is released. The many layers of the guitar open up like a pompous fan. While the bass envelops the room in unobtrusive analogue warmth as before, it is the drums in particular that make the quantum leap in sound clear.
On their latest record, SPECK, with their glorious repetitions and a 3D spatial backdrop, create a cosmic carpet of sound that is wonderful to romp around on.
