Mitteltöner72—K. Leimer’s homage to the German
Kosmische period —is an expanded, remixed and newly
mastered edition of the Origin Peoples LP released in
2018. ’72 includes all the music produced but not originally
released for the LP.
“Leimer’s love of kosmische is evident from the start, as
“Dunne Luft” condenses the earmarks of that sound into
its four minutes. There’s the solar flares of guitar that
arise early on in the track, fuzzy and luminous, serving
less as a lead instrument and more as a sonic texture. It
sounds like a sly homage to the arcing six-string stylings
of Neu! and Harmonia member Michael Rother, but rather
than simply pay tribute, Leimer lets pinging synths bustle
underneath and processes and loops live drums to keep the
track’s momentum going. The flickering rhythms bring to
mind the blurry highways evoked on Autobahn while the
ghostly melodies of the piece bear the evocative beauty of
Popol Vuh. Rather than serve as mere pastiche, Mitteltöner
encapsulates Leimer’s unique talents: drawing on a vintage
sound now over forty years old and entering into middle
age, while also finding a way to push it forward.”
—Pitchfork
