Masturbation Goes Cloud

Masturbation Goes Cloud is a duo from Athens, Greece that play some really cool kraut/math rock. Their sound is defined by the use of a 6 string bass and loop pedal, and drums, with occasional synths hidden in some songs. They've got a nice chill sound to their music, and while the songs are relatively simple and repetitive (as most kraut rock is) what I really like about the band is how easily you can get lost in the music, and how nicely they build their songs. You know how much I love them builds. Those synths I mentioned bring a really dreamy atmosphere to some songs, especially The Figs Figs and the Tab Tab. Yes, the name is silly, but don't let that deter you. If you like krautrock like Neu! or Can, I'm pretty confident you'll dig this.
