Sula Bassana – Dreamer (2002)(320 kb/s)

Sula Bassana is the one man project of Germany’s David Schmidt.He definitely channels that Krautrock vibe very well.I couldn’t help but think of what Roger Waters once said, that ideas were more important than virtuosity.When it comes to Psychedelic and Krautrock music especially that statement holds a lot of weight. This is David’s debut album called ‘Dreamer’ and it’s fantasic ! ‘Dreamer’ opens sounding very retro,very 60’s actually with the organ,synths and drums leading the way.Vocals join in but it’s the guitar before 2 minutes that’s the highlight of this track. ‘Dealer McDope’ is such a great title.Guitar to open as drums and a full sound arrive quickly.Spacey winds too before it settles around a minute.Oragn and vocals after 1 1/2 minutes.It’s very spacey late then it eventually blends into ‘My Blue Guitar’.A trippy beat follows as the guitar soars.Love this track. ‘Nervenlahmung’ opens with sounds that hum and float.We start to get a rhythm after a minute.It stops after 3 minutes as it turns spacey. ‘Ananda’ is spacey as a beat comes in.Some piano comes and goes as these strange sounds make noise over top.Sitar before 5 minutes.It kicks in unexpectantly before 9 minutes then settles again around 11 minutes. ‘Baby Blue Shuffle In D Major’ is apparently an unreleased PINK FLOYD track.At least i’ve never heard of it.It has an unusual intro then it settles in with a trippy beat.Some mellotron too.Great sound.The guitar becomes prominant before 3 minutes and the sound gets spacier. –progarchives.
