There's a tendency with Jan Jelinek to lean on record titles and release notes for clues about the content of his music. As his latest is called Tierbeobachtungen, German for "animal observations," some have been hearing an "animal like" quality in these tracks. And as he's said that he recorded these tracks in various locations while between studios, others are hearing something restless and displaced.
2006 album from this German l Electronic artist, the follow-up to his highly-acclaimed and successful album Kosmischer Pitch. Jelinek continues his looping Electronic vortex and peppers it with plenty of Kraut Rock references. Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample).

Cat No: back07 Label: FAITICHE Genre: ELECTRONIC. I was lucky enough to catch Jelinek a couple of times on one of his recent tours, and I can safely say that 'Tierbeobachtungen' is far closer to his live material, especially when he plays solo using a variety of small instruments as his sound source and funnelling them through chains of guitar FX pedals.
