What’s one of the least expected reunions you can think of in 2023? Well, there’s so many possibilities, but certainly Agitation Free is up there.

This is an excellent new album. It doesn’t sound like it was made in the 70s, but it does sound like Agitation Free with a modern edge. Hey! Lütz Ulbrich and Michael Hoenig are both on board here, 50 years later! Zounds! “The Krautrock legend has been resurrected 50 years after their impressive 1972 debut album “Malesch”.

Joining the band are the four original members Lutz “Lüül” Graf-Ulbrich (electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo), Michael Hoenig (keyboards, synthesizer, electronic percussion), Gustl Lütjens (†2017, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, vocals) and Burghard Rausch (drums, electronic percussion) as well as newcomer Daniel Cordes (bass, synthesizer). Also joining as guests: Peter Michael Hamel (santoor) and Benjamin Schwenen (lead guitar). The pioneers of experimental German rock music present “Momentum”, their first studio album since 1999. Agitation Free create cinematic soundscapes in an instrumental time machine and they take the listeners on an impressive musical journey. Otherworldly sounds, pulsating rhythms, grandiose guitar riffs, hypnotic sequencers and driving basses create an amazing, cinematic soundscape – almost like a time machine connecting past and future. “Momentum” is an exciting album from Agitation Free. It shows that they are still one of the most innovative bands in the German music scene.

Agitation Free was one of the most innovative German Krautrock bands from 1967 to 1974 with an international reputation. They combined improvised instrumental rock, classical avant-garde and elements of “world music” before that word became a household word. In 1972 they were the first rock band to tour Egypt, Lebanon, Cyprus and Greece, and were part of the cultural program for the Olympic Games in Munich. They originally released two albums: the classic “Malesch” (1972), inspired by their oriental travels, and “2nd” (1973), which was much jazzier, rockier and more electronic.
