From the opening track, "Watussi," which pans back and forth between left and right channels, Harmonia's 1974 debut plays like a classic headphone album. The band was a krautrock supergroup composed of Neu!'s Michael Rother and Cluster's Dieter Moebius and Hans Joachim Roedelius (on later albums they'd be joined by Brian Eno), and the re-release of this long-forgotten recording is cause for celebration amongst fans of early electronica and sedate but imaginative post-rock.
