Cluster – Zuckerzeit (1975)

Info: Cluster was the brainchild of the innovative duo Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius and for ‘Zuckerzeit’, the band’s third album they roped in Harmonia and Neu! member Michael Rother to take care of production duties. The influence of Rother is evident throughout, and one could easily mistake ‘Zuckerzeit’ for a lost Harmonia record, but there is a great deal more restraint and subtlety on display here than on ‘Deluxe’ for instance. The album begins with the harmonic synth-led bliss of ‘Hollywood’, a track that sounds just as fresh now as it no doubt did in 1975 when the album was originally released.
