Das Land Ohne Musik review

Einstellung‘s acoustic kraut/post-rock gig at the Old Joint Stock Theatre last week got a great write up in the Birmingham Post. Justly so. It was very good.

The addition of strings seemed to suit the quartet’s reworked arrangements perfectly. Much like their usual incarnation, mellifluous guitar lines duelled and intertwined, although much more subdued than usual, nevertheless snaking between the rumbling bass while motorik rhythms (on this occasion played with brushes for the requisite subtle mood) provided the signature krautrock theme, even without the nominal searing guitars.


  1. Some good news for those who couldn’t get tickets for this sell out show. The recording has come out really well. Looks like it will see the light of day in some form.

    Einstellung will be back to their full-bore powerkraut best in the autumn.
