Rodelius and ....Lloyd Cole?

Weird pairing, this new all-electronic album from one of the titans of kraut rock and an artist primarily known for quality, country-tinged pop. It turns out, though, that Lloyd Cole has been experimenting in electronic music for some time and that Hans-Joachim Roedelius previous remixed one of his electronic albums -- without even asking first -- and sent it to him and Cole really liked it, so why not?

Caution, for those ready to be heartbroken, there is no singing, no guitar and really nothing to remind you of Cole's more song-structured work...but plenty to recall Cluster.

The album is called Selected Studies Volume 1 (which rather implies more to come) and it came out Bureau B last Tuesday.
