We saw this 15-people assembly celebrating its 25th anniversary at The University of the Streets and it was a real treat.

Just discovered this band from around 1972, so excited about it! Not very well known, nevertheless this duo played with kraftwerk and sound like it could have influenced bands like Brian Eno, stereolab, David Bowie, Air, Télépopmusik.
They use sounds in a repetitive yet interesting way that's minimalist and hypnotic and really (yes, it sounds cheesy) takes you to another world.
