Label: Oh Boy Records
Manuel Gottsching's transformation in the 1970s is amazing. In well under 10 years he went from pioneering blitzed-out space rock in the band Ash Ra Tempel to helping lay the foundation for modern electronica with his Ashra project. Originally released in 1976, New Age of Earth isn't dissimilar from the synth-based Kosmische musik of ex-Ash Ra mate Klaus Schulze, or even Spiral-era Vangelis. And yet it feels wonderfully prescient and out of time. Its crisp focus and airtight flow feel more in tune with the binary logic of the cyber era than the deep-space ambient music popular at the time.
