Siloah - Sukram Gurk (1972)
"In this album, the obscure Germans of Siloah explore a new musical direction that has almost nothing in common with the acid-bucolic-primitive-folk of their beginning. The music is highly concentrated on complex, melodic progressive rock psychedelica dominated by electric organs' powerful chords. The album is proggier and much more structured that their previous one. The opening theme starts as a humorous proggy pop ballad then carries on an ultra expressive organ section focused on serene melodies. "Magic Carpet Ride To The Alps" is a grooved out, sensual organic improvisation, strictly instrumental with a discreet experimental touch. "Feast Of The Pickpockets" is a gorgeous dream-like, spacy dramatic interlude for warm organic tones. "Stony" is another psychedelic improvisation sustained by furious keyboards and a frantic freak 'n' roll action. Obviously recommended for krautrock fans despite it's not a classic. Nicely made!
