10 Trippiest Krautrock Albums of the 60s and 70s

Emerging from the West German cities of Munich, Hamburg and Cologne during the ‘golden’ post-psychedelic period from 1969-75, a succession of musicians, artists, collectives and groups created some of the most incredible, unearthly, free and genuinely experimental music of the past 50 years. In the grooves of Germany’s rock legacy rests a maze of near-buried LPs and thought-lost artefacts that make for a treasure- trove waiting to be discovered. Sure, a lot of records have already been mined, but as we all know, the slightest whisper of unreleased Can material can induce a feverish sweat in any discerning vinyl aficionado, while the mention of ‘vanity’ or ‘private’ press will have any self-respecting kraut enthusiast salivating like a hound dog. Over the years, it’s become clear that krautrock has indirectly influenced almost every form of music, whether it’s rock, techno or even grime.
