(Crocodile) There's still plenty of mileage left in the motorik rhythm. That metronomic beat pioneered by genius Germans Neu! circa "Hallogallo" has powered umpteen bands since the early '70s, and its seemingly inexhaustible propulsion flourishes even in Chile, where the most excellent Föllakzoid dwell. Recording for Sacred Bones (as do laid-back psych-boogie tourmates Psychic Ills), Föllakzoid play mellowly urgent and trance-inducing space rock that suggests they have ice water flowing through their veins. There's a fine line between monotony and transcendence, and Föllakzoid's repetitious, minimalist tracks achieve the difficult feat of making you wish they'd last forever—or until last call.
