3 stars Good and original!

Ariel Kalma´s " Le Temps Des Moissons", 1975, developes a quiet ahead of its time set of compositions, which later in time will be known as "World Music". Combining native acoustic instruments alongside Electronic Rock ones and taking full advantage of his "mid-pro" recording studio, he delivers a variety of original musical proposals.

Some moments sound more "native" than electronic prog, but then again the frequent use of the electric guitar brings it closer to KrautRock or the "Eclectic" tagging or Crossover if you wish!

The set of 3 songs is rich in melodical ideas, that flow between the mid-western and Australian native, trance like musical figure repetitions and rhythms, to more electronic/noiseful places and to some heavy/Jazz sax moments, blended in simultaneously or by themselves with the aid of the dephasing of the recording tapes and loops.

The whole experience is surprising, dynamic and daring. A promising first album, worth the hassle of getting it.

***3.5 PA stars.
