An evening to celebrate the release of Kulku’s new album ‚Fahren‘ on Phase Group.
Müge & Ceren
The next release on Phase Group unearths a truly unique project that has existed as an outlier in the Berlin underground since 2002.
Kulku’s music is a hard to define blend of percussive minimalism, folk, krautrock, post-punk and no wave, almost exclusively derived from acoustic sound sources. Their debut album ‘Fahren‘ presents this unique sound-identity that they have been crafting for the best part of two decades.
The A-side presents 3 tracks of percussive propulsion, minimalist xylophone motifs and repetitive drums alongside monotone organ, dramatic narration and woodwind instruments moving in and out of dissonant howls and melodic improvisation. The B-side is devoted to lighter tones, beginning with the glockenspiel minimalism of ‘Unterm Himmel’ and rounding the record out with trance inducing drone of the album’s title track which builds up into a cacophony of snare drums, dissonant accordion and melodica before fading out like dream.
All songs composed and recorded in Berlin by Wenzlovar, Gatis Silde, Johannes Schmelzer-Ziringer, Johanna Riska, Cornelius Onitsch, Alexander Samuels and Maxfield Gassmann
‘Fahren’ is released in August 2022 on Phase Group Records. Distribution via Rubadub.
