Sehr Kosmisch Ganz Progisch is the charming new release from Weserbergland, and it’s a delicious slice of instrumental krautrock/prog that is an immersive and engaging listen.
Painting a picture with music, Sehr Kosmisch Ganz Progisch is a four-track mini masterpiece that really draws you in. The music and melodies are never in your face, but they’re performed in such a way that you can’t help but want to take a closer look at them and you can’t help but get sucked into the music as a result. At times, it can be fairly minimalistic but there’s a nice amount of intricacy lurking underneath it all and it’s just one of those releases where you’ll spot something different every time.
All four tracks bring their own sparkle to the release but the highlight has to be the final track, Tristant. The saxophone line is a particularly powerful inclusion, immediately following a more electronically-driven section, and the track keeps building in momentum as it progresses and helps the band to finish on a high.
It can occasionally be a struggle to fully connect with an instrumental album as some pieces can feel like they’re simply missing a vocal line, but that is absolutely not the case with Sehr Kosmisch Ganz Progisch. It’s adventurous, emotive and beautiful – and if old-school prog is up your street, then chances are you’ll love this.
