This Just In: Planetarium Krautrock

Thanks to everyone who supported small business during the holidays. We’re still in the midst of restocking the shop because y’all cleaned us out! As the new year progresses we’ll be featuring our favorite new releases and reissues as usual, but this week I’d like to focus on an (inter)stellar local piece…

Tropical Depression: Planetarium Krautrock Zine+Cassette:
On April 6th, 2013, artist Kevin Arrow and musician Romulo Del Castillo (Schematic) presented “an audio and visual experience on Krautrock, an umbrella term for the rock and electronic experimental music that originated in Germany in the late 1960s.” It took place at the Miami Science Museum’s Planetarium, where a captive audience experienced Kevin’s collage imagery projected alongside band photos and factoids, all set to a krautsoundtrack selected by Romulo. If you were there, you know how special this night was. Granted, seating was limited so some of you missed out. But never fear! Being the consistent archivist he is, Kevin created a zine commemorating the event, including a cassette soundtrack and vintage planetarium-related souvenir – a Star Gazer stick pin (all you PBS kids know about Star Gazer). Bleeding Palm also contributed to production of the zine, making it, well, trippy as fuck. Get this now!
