Time Dilation: Ashra’s Shuttle Cocks

Manuel Gottsching’s Ashra takes us on a spacey trip through the sparse outer limits of space-time with this experimental electronics gem titled “Shuttle Cocks.”

Minimal drums frame the eternally looping guitars while the funky bass line drives up front.  Who says krauts can’t boogie?  This cut is from the 1977 album Blackouts.

Featured Track: Forest Swords “Miarches”

Rob might want to hit me a little for this one as it’s a bit of a left turn. For me, the fit with Soundtrack2 is found in the fuzzed-out bass and mechanical shakiness. Forest Swords proves it’s possible to be simple and dense at the same time. Warning: this is not the track to get you through the evening rush hour. Forest Swords \”Miarches\”
