In the maelstrom of post-punk music recorded in the late 1970's, Swell Maps are both quite odd and very refreshing. They fuse together pure punk rock explosions with the motorik beats and psychedelic tinkerings of the krautrock movement. The end result is something incredible that is both intellectual and highly energetic. Recommended to all fans of post-punk, punk, krautrock, and energetic avant-gardening. Check out the youtube video of "Midget Submarines" for a sample of these guys.
