One of my favorite non psych exports from Germany especially the mid period Between such as Dharana which contains some very nice bonus material on the Wergo cd. Between could be compared to Oregon in the US as well as Paul Winter but their sound was less jagged and really more trance like and inward. Hamel really was the pioneer of the band incorporating a very repetitive minimalist composition style ala Terry Riley into of their recordings. The music is exotic but not rock and roll and carries no blues influence thankfully throughout the recordings.
Very European utilizing classical/nylon guitar and oboe as well as the added infusion of percussion and organ. This music really does stand the test of time I just wished Between had more exposure here in the US but unfortunately we Americans like our music served machismo style loud, abrasive, blues based, filled with vapid lyrics and cannot conceive of anything involving texture, dynamics or devoid of a chorus, verse chorus undeviating! Fans of Oregon this band is HIGHLY recommended!
