Dervish

Dervish

Pulsating 70s Krautrock electronic instrumental music by way of 1985 Boston, by punk veterans Jon Coe and Rob Davis (The Molls) along with synthesist Jeff Block. Cluster, Neu!, and “North Star” zone Philip Glass are obvious points of comparison, and synth tones call to mind Terry Riley’s “Shri Camel.” At their best, on tracks like “Sleepwalk,” the band resembles a new age movie soundtrack outfit, making the music Tangerine Dream should’ve been delivering to their Hollywood employers.
