Space is the place. After their vinyl debut Modul 12 (2019), -270°C is Kombynat Robotrons second release through Tonzonen Records. The album contains four mostly improvised tracks, each named after a space-telescope. Compton, Chandra, Spitzer and Hubble are four different
perspectives on space, four deep looks into the universe.
While the band’s live performances are always a unique experience of longform-jams that slowly evolve, Kombynat Robotron take a different approach on this record. The music is still improvised, yet there’s clearly a different vibe in these tracks than in the band’s earlier records.
The clean artwork, which was again made by Anton Ohlow, who also created the artwork for Modul 12, shows the direction towards which the Kombynat is heading. The clarity and transparency in the artwork can also be found in the sound of this record.
The album was recorded at Dickfehler Studio in east frisia by Hanno Janßen, who also recorded the band’s last LP Dickfehler Studio Treffen I (Dronerock Records, 2020). The well-balanced sound makes it
easy to discover something new with each spin of the record, almost like looking up to the stars through a telescope.

Excellent album / tape. Surprising to me in two ways: 1. Space rock is not usually huge for me. 2. Totally not what I expected when I got it in the post. Very well done, psychedelic space-rock, without being over-indulgently proggy or solo driven. astrorockandrolla
