Agitation Free  - Malesch

  • Agitation Free

    Malesch LP (1972)

    Vertigo

This is the debut from German kraut rock band Agitation Free and considered their best of their 3 releases in the 70s.  Malesch is a desert rock masterpiece as they mesh droning electronics with space rock exploration all glued together with a Middle Eastern feel (story goes they immersed themselves in Moroccan culture for inspiration.)  To me there is real no stand out cut on this album.  It's meant to be enjoyed as a whole.  Be prepared to get “spiritual” once you put it on.
