Klaus Schulze has announced that he’ll release his new studio album later this year. Titled Silhouettes, it’s the Krautrock pioneer’s first record in five years and will arrive on May 25 via SPV on CD, 2LP and via digital platforms. Silhouettes features four compositions which were created last year and were written following an extended period of rest due to health issues affecting Schulze.
Extensive 5CD/book set exploring the evolution of the Goth movement, from the glacial postpunk of the late 1970s through positive punk and into the Batcave era, dark electronica and beyond.
There is a lot of music on this set, including the 30-minute "Oasis." This is a Live at the Village Vanguard recording by pianist Keith Jarrett and his European quartet (Jan Garbarek on soprano and tenor, bassist Palle Danielsson and drummer Jon Christensen). The pianist very much dominates the music but Garbarek's unique floating tone on his instruments and the subtle accompaniment by Danielsson and Christensen are also noteworthy.
