Kraut rock music on the radio

Krautrock, also known as Kosmische Musik or German Progressive Rock, is a genre of rock music that originated in Germany in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is characterized by its experimental and improvisational nature, with an emphasis on repetition, trance-like rhythms, and electronic instrumentation.

Some of the most popular Krautrock artists include Can, Neu!, Faust, and Kraftwerk. Can was known for their use of electronic music and found sounds, while Neu! was known for their driving rhythms and minimalist approach. Faust incorporated elements of musique concrète and avant-garde, and Kraftwerk pioneered the use of synthesizers and electronic instruments in popular music.

In terms of radio stations, there are several that feature Krautrock music. Radio Monash, for example, has a program called "Krautrock Kraze" that focuses on the genre. There is also the station Krautrock-World, which exclusively plays Krautrock music, as well as Progulus Radio, which features a mix of progressive rock and Krautrock. Additionally, many online streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music have dedicated playlists and radio stations featuring Krautrock music.
