Baikonour – Your Ear Knows No Future

(Melodic) UK release date: 12 January 2009

Jesus And Mary Chain for its overriding inspiration.

On Chiru, the shimmering wall of guitars can be admired, as can the lovely toll of bells that opens Fly Tiger. And elsewhere the raking sound of processed sitars adds a brief note of the exotic to the end of Fly Tiger.

The only problem with Krieger’s music here is that it isn’t consistently memorable enough to make it through to the foreground. Admirable timbres, rhythms and melodic snippets are all very well, but what is found wanting on occasion is a really substantial piece of original thinking to set him apart from the field.

As a result You Ear Knows No Future works well as a background record, and will probably cast its hypnotic spell in the live environment, but can’t be regarded as particularly groundbreaking.
