Popol Vuh / Affenstunde
(Vinyl LP – Klimt)
Brilliant debut by the godfathers of ambient and world music, Popol Vuh! Originally released in 1970, Affenstunde (literally Ape Hour) was the first album by a German band to employ the extraordinary sounds of the Moog synthesizer. Blending electronics with traditional percussion instruments, Popol Vuh – led by the legendary multi-instrumentalist Florian Fricke – created a tribal and dreamlike blanket of sound that would go on to influence many-a-band on the krautrock scene and beyond.
