Playlist: My Beautiful Krautrock

When most people think of the Krautrock music genre, they don't think of warm and soothing sounds. Cold, motorik beats probably come to mind, robot surrogates banging on electric drums. The unflattering name "Krautrock" acted as a catch-all for progressive German music of the late 60's through the early 80's, ignoring the fact that bands in this genre had very different sounds and intents (how anyone could lump Harmonia and Kraftwerk together is beyond me!) To illustrate the point, I've compiled a pastoral view of Krautrock in this Spotify playlist. Hope you enjoy it! Jim
