A sequel to the acclaimed Lunz project, this follow-up finds Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Tim Story shedding their original collaborative moniker in favour of recording under their own names. It’s great to hear the Cluster and Harmonia veteran in such fine form (he’ll be 74 this year), making effortlessly graceful ambient music that still sounds like it’s at the very forefront of the genre. Inlandish is bound to prompt comparisons to Ryuichi Sakamoto or Harold Budd for the glowing, meditative piano pieces at the heart of the record, but the kind of electronic treatments and additional instrumentation reaches beyond any single theme, with some compositions simply augmented by ghostly strands of cello, while others more fully embrace digital manipulation, as on ‘Serpentining’; a melding of melodic piano and humming circuitry. Of course, there’s some great synth work on the album too, particularly when it comes to the vintage krautrock tones of ‘Beforst’, a piece wonderfully redolent of Roedelius’ past. Excellent.  (For DX)
