Kentucky’s not necessarily the place your mind goes when you think of krautrock, but lurking in Lexington’s vibrant skate/garage community there’s a strong undercurrent in the form of Jovontaes. Recorded mostly at Small’s Void Skateshop in Lexington, their debut brings whiffs of Guru Guru, Ash Ra Tempel, and NEU! to the air, but with a decidedly meditative core; chugging rhythm down like cheap PBR one minute and nebulous as ash on the wind the next. –Andy French, Raven Sings the Blues
