Jan Philipp Janzen is musician from Cologne, Germany and is a member Von Spar and Cologne Tape. He has also played as live drummer for musicians like The Field and Owen Pallett. Pets I is Janzen’s first release as Column and he’s certainly off to a great start. Released last July on Berlin’s Areal Records, Pets I seamlessly blends elements of krautrock and house music. This EP only has 3 tracks, but it feels very contingent without being boring. I would say overall it’s a very quick and worthwhile listen for any of you who enjoy electronic music.
RIYL: Cavern of Anti-Matter, Youandewan, that trendy club in the gentrified neighborhood that doesn’t play top 40s music
Favorite track: Looking For Shoes II
