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 a bit less jagged at the periphery with a more trance like and inward focus. 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.
Between also channeled that very European classical aesthetic utilizing classical/nylon guitar, oboe with 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. Fans of Oregon this band is HIGHLY recommended!
