playlist 7.26.11- KRAUTROCK + fleet foxes giveaway

This week’s theme was krautrock, which is an experimental music genre that originated in Germany in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Artists including Neu!, Can, and Faust laid the groundwork for later variations on this far-reaching genre, which can still be felt today (Deerhunter, Wilco, Tortoise). So, think new-wave, space rock, psychedelic, synth, ambient, post-punk, electronica, post-rock.
