3 stars KANOI, a one-man rock project by Benjamin KANTSCHIEDER, shows one of strategies for launching Krautrock flavour, with his personal interpretation and original tribalism and psychedelia here and there.

From the beginning "Atlantean Conductor" his innovative edge of insanity can be heard ... hippy, trippy, groovy persistence created with percussive rhythm depth with kinky, grumpy guitar fuzzez are pretty of addiction. No need to analyze, but to leave yourself along with the mind-altering agent. The following folksy acidity "Birdsong" reminds me Jerry Garcia's stoner blues. Benjamin's dreamy voices take us into the bottom of his blue sound sea ... this effect might have been experienced when I listened to The Folk Crusaders in my younger days. And his verdict upon acid folk scene is flicked up as an unstable sound tremor. Mysterious really.

Sadly the two tracks in the middle of this album sound less experimental than others mentioned above. In "Witch Mt." his shoegaze guitar shots fly over based upon sticky blues riffs. Curious he played such a simple song like "Strawberry Jam" with imaging what. Good songs nonetheless.

On the contrary, "Armor & Blade" drives us crazy with his deep, mellow, magnificent psychedelic theatre in the middle part, and with slimy organ -based sound fractal. Why can we keep breathing? The last tricky elektronika "Snow Country" can be quite suitable for our nightcap filled with persistent hypnotic atmosphere. A good ending for us. Ahem, good feeling later.
