Xhol Caravan: Electrip (1969) {2000 Reissue + Bonus Tracks} [FLAC]




PORTUGUÊS:
Xhol Caravan é a segunda encarnação de uma banda pioneira no cenário do krautrock que começou como Soul Caravan e chegou ao seu fim somente como Xhol. No início, eles tocavam um soul com alguns elementos psicodélicos, mas depois eles adicionaram um pouco de blues, alguns efeitos eletrônicos e se fundamentaram como uma banda de jazz-fusion. Foi uma das primeiras bandas de kraut, junto com Can e Amon Düül II, a lançarem um álbum.

Uma pena que tiveram um fim tão cedo, mas mesmo assim deixaram um legado incrível nos tempos do nascimento do krautrock.


ENGLISH:
Xhol Caravan was the second encarnation of a pioneer band in the krautrock scene which began under the name Soul Caravan and only disbanded with the name Xhol. In the beggining, they played soul with psychedelic elements, but later they added a little of blues blended with electronic effects and finally switched to a jazz-fusion band. It was one of the very first kraut bands, alongside with Can and Amon Düül II, to release an album.

A pity that they disbanded so early, even though they've left an incredible legacy in the times of krautrock movement birth.

  1. Xhol Caravan is one of the only I would say slightly Canterbury-styled German bands (along with Brainstorm,..) and one of the most interesting Krautrock / jazzrock groups from Wiesbaden (Hessen). They started as Soul Caravan with some soul and jazz influence, (including two black musicians at that stage), but evolved to more improvised and advanced territory with a name change to Xhol Caravan with a single in 1969 still showing some soul influence, until the band really changed stile with some small line up change, and a much more adventurous debut, “Electrip”, with longer, partly improvised tracks. It was along with a few other independent examples one of the most interesting albums of that time, with a jazz influenced psych-rock style that was going to be an influence to groups like Out Of Focus, Kraan... Also early Embryo was related in style. While looking like hippies, driving in a flowerpainted car, and playing rather psychedelic go-free music, they had experienced several problems by the police and costumers, finding them too suspicious characters, like one event on the border of Switzerland where they confiscated some innocent teabags (having put them in prison for a day).
    The debut LP, "Electrip" was reissued on LP some years ago, and by Garden Of Delights on CD soon after. The single, also included, wasn’t that interesting yet, but “Electrip” surely is a classic of a jazzrock driven album with interesting compositions and incredible improvisations, and a must for Canterbury (and Soft Machine) lovers. The album opens up with the sound of a toilet being flushed, Organ fueled throughout with lots of Sax and Flute, masterful playing from the whole band.
    Long songs, fantastic, gloomy atmosphere reminiscent of recordings Nosferatu! Some of the improvisations have some free form improvisations, but are still very structured, powerful and crafty, and with energetic evolutions.
