Brilliant debut by the godfathers of ambient and world music, Popol Vuh! Originally released in 1970, Affenstunde (literally 'Ape Hour') was the first album by a German band to employ the extraordinary sounds of the Moog synthesizer. Blending electronics with traditional percussion instruments, Popol Vuh - led by the legendary multi-instrumentalist Florian Fricke - created a tribal and dreamlike blanket of sound that would go on to influence many-a-band on the krautrock scene and beyond. Popol Vuh would also soon famously begin to collaborate with Werner Herzog, composing many of the soundtracks to his films from this period (including Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Nosferatu and Fitzcarraldo).

POPOL VUH wurde 1970 von Mastermind Florian Fricke in München gegründet und gilt als der Pionier unter den Elektronikern und Vorläufer der Ambient- und Trance-Music der 90ger Jahre. Als einer der ersten Musiker in Deutschland arbeitete Florian Fricke mit einem MOOG III, ein Instrument, dass eine ganz spezielle Klangwelt zauberte, die in der Elektronik bis dahin noch nicht existierte und das erste Album Affenstunde zu einem Meilenstein einer neuen Musik machte. 1975 begannen Fricke und Popol Vuh eine langjährige kreative Partnerschaft mit dem renommierten deutschen Filmemacher Werner Herzog, der epische Film-Soundtracks hervorbrachte, darunter Aguirre Der Zorn Gottes, Fitzcarraldo, Nosferatu, Herz aus Glas und Cobra Verde mit der Konsequenz, dass Popol Vuhs Musik dreimal für den Oscar nominiert wurde.

For You And Me
LP | 1992 | US | Reissue (One Way Static)
16,99 €*
Release:1992 / US – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Born as Florian Fricke’s brainchild, Popol Vuh needs little introduction, the band stayed active between the late 1960s & late 1990s (until Florian’s passing in 2001). Regarded as pioneers in avant-garde German electronic music, their early works practically laid down the foundations for ‘Kosmische Muzik’ (Space Music) with the then new sounds of the Moog synthesizer joined with ethnic percussions.

Later the group evolved to include all kinds of instruments (both electric and acoustic alike) shrouding their music in a spiritual & introspective mystical aura. Popol Vuh influenced many other European bands with their uniquely soft but elaborate instrumentation, which took inspiration from the music of Tibet, Africa and pre-Columbian America. With music sometimes described as "ethereal", they created soundscapes through psychedelic walls of sound, and are regarded as precursors of contemporary ‘world music’, as well as of ‘new age’ and ‘ambient’. Popol Vuh regularly contributed soundtracks to the films of Werner Herzog that include classics like ‘Aguirre’, ‘Nosferatu’, ‘Heart Of Glass’ & ‘Cobra Verde’.

‘For You And Me’ was their 17th album & now 28 years it holds up more than ever. While decidedly new age and world music in sound (with musical elements from the Himalayas, Ireland, Greece and Africa), this album has style and grace, and the updated sonic quality makes it a pleasure to listen to. The light pieces combined with their timeless dramatic signature sound, the majestic piano chords, the profound lyrics and the crescendos of emotions set this album apart from the banal new age mainstream. The authentic Popul Vuh spirituality permeates on every track here, prepare for goose bumps and a divine moment, in For You And Me, they created a more modern day classic, easily their best album of the 90's.

Out of print since 1991 and never released on vinyl outside of Europe, now back available as a gorgeously packaged deluxe vinyl edition. Strictly limited with spot-varnished details on the jacket.

Originally released in 1985, ‘Spirit of Peace’ is the fifteenth album by Popol Vuh. The first track was used by Werner Herzog as original motion picture soundtrack for his documentary ‘The Dark Glow of the Mountains’. ‘Spirit of Peace’ is about making the journey into the destination and it truly achieves the meaning of the album title. ‘Yehung’ chants and beautiful intertwined mellow, yet complex guitars grooves make this album an ambient (or even a new age) masterpiece.

Out of print since 1985 and never released outside of Europe, now back available as a gorgeously packaged expanded Double Vinyl edition. Strictly limited to 700 copies, this release also comes with extra tracks that were not featured on the original pressing.
