Aera - Turkis. 1979 Germany


Here's one of Aera's later 1970s albums, where the band veers into funky fusion territory, similar to other German bands of the era like Kraan and Munju. Fuzz bass, organ and extra percussion take this to a higher place than most though. Not the highlight of their catalog, but a good random pick all the same. Best track is the 3 part suite 'Dracula' which mixes haunting organ with a late 70s midnight spacey vibe. Watch out for tracks like 'You Need Some Speed' and 'Siebert' that are a bit generic in that Sanford & Son theme song sort of way.
