CAN – “Future Days” from Future Days (1973)
Imagine sitting in on a jam session with Can in the early 1970s. That must have been something to witness. Even their studio recordings attest to their unCANny unity as a group. They sound like one, highly coordinated machine. Yet what separated Can from Deutschen contemporaries like Kraftwerk was their ability to sound eminently human. Borrowing from jazz, they took German precision to groovy depths that put their music in stark contrast to the intentional alienation of more automated, electronic artists.
