News / May 17, 2017

Fresh on the heels of their Record Store Day release of Cobra Verde, One Way Static have announced two more albums by the avante-garde German group Popol Vuh.  Agape-Agape Love-Love and Spirit of Peace are both slated to be released on June 27th with pre-orders beginning now. Here’s a portion of the press release, courtesy of OWS:

OWS14 POPOL VUH ‘AGAPE-AGAPE LOVE-LOVE’ LP

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.

Out of print since 1983 and never released outside of Europe, now back available as a gorgeously packaged deluxe vinyl edition. Strictly limited to 700 copies, this release also comes with an exclusive bonus track & an insert with extensive liner notes. Next to the black vinyl pressing, a color vinyl variant (#300 copies) will also be made available exclusively through Light In The Attic & Mondo in North America and through Transmission in Europe

OWS15 POPOL VUH ‘SPIRIT OF PEACE’ 2XLP

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 if 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.
