Speaking of krautrock, here’s a great record by Brainticket, an experimental rock band from Switzerland and Southern Germany. Though they’re remembered most fondly for their music’s electronic elements, you’ll notice a lot of flute and jazzy guitar lurking in the background of their tracks. But fair warning, this song is being posted to highlight their experimental side, so it’s not the album’s most melodic. The band didn’t make much of a commercial splash and split up after three record releases in the early 70s, but they reformed with line-up changes both in the 80s and in 2000 which resulted in 3 new albums.
