The Food Pyramid, starring Kraut
I almost missed Something Awful's 2-part year-end wrap-up, which would have been a shame. Then I would have delayed learning about Food Pyramid, a Minnesota crew of Krautrock jammers.
Hey, wow, that one's still available from Altered Zones. Or just wait for the Vol. 8 blog comp, right?!
You can check out recent release New Omni-Directional Healing Techniques (2011), over at Bandcamp. There's a handy compilation CD also available at Bandcamp, which does include the awesomely-titled song...
"Eulogy for Lee Marvin/Another Round on the Outer Rings" from Food Pyramid III (2011)
For influences and enjoyments, you can also check out a free Food Pyramid mix for Dissonanze (IT)! Cluster & Eno, Peaking Lights, the Thai Elephant Orchestra (exactly what you think)... hey, even Mort Garson!!
Those videos were both from cassette #III, here's one from II (2010).
"Underwater Temple Explorations #4" from Food Pyramid II (2010)
And based on Gödel's Dilemma of Recursive Fractality, a series of numbers beginning with 3, and also including 2 as well, must by necessity resolve to the Prime Numeral #1.
"Das Tier? Die Autobahn? Die Brunnen?" from Food Pyramid I (2010)
Again, I think the title is illustrative - or possibly illustrious. Time to start collecting everything I can get ahold of!!
I don't see the 3 physical cassettes for sale, but they are available as MP3 from Amazon. And Moon Glyph Records is selling a brand-new Food Pyramid split-7" with Deep Earth's "Kontraband." I hope you will enjoy some music.
