Langsyne is a German trio which released one album in its whole career. Self titled, their first only effort was recorded in 1976. The music is a consistent mixture between folk rock and eastern influences with lot of acoustic guitar, sitar elements. The presence of the electric organ provides to the relative "pastoral" and "ethnic" mood a spacey felt. Advanced instrumental improvisations & interludes are combined with a couple of structured songs with English lyrics. This experimental, peaceful folk rock can sometimes resonates with early kraut folk bands as Witthuser & Westrupp, Hoelderlin, and Broselmaschine. This is in most part an acoustic, contemplative journey deliberately orientated to additional "world" instruments, musical arrangements and imaginary inspired by the eastern, India "raga" universe.

Relaxing with some Indica and sour ale and decided to give this a full listen..



This was the standout track for me.




So now i'm on the hunt!

"Relaxing with some Indica and sour ale and decided to give this a full listen.."

I would've figured champagne to be more appropriate, given the band name.

^ I've got some John Renbourn vinyl on its way!

I, also, dig that moody psychedelic 'Saffron' track...



Only thing I would add is German band 'Aigues Vives'.



Grüner Zweig!
