Their roots lie in Germany’s experimental and innovative rock music, which frees the spirit of barrierless experimentation and builds the main ground. They combine influences of electronic music, psychedelic rock, motorik, post punk and noise with German lyrics. Following the paths CAN, NEU! or Kraftwerk built „Westend“ leads to new interpretations and sounds international and a bit zeitgeisty.
70s meet 80s, pioneer german NDW sounds like Abwärts or DAF find their places as well as stoic rhythmics like NEU! Or The Oh Sees.
