Noetics — Delayed Back
(State of the Art SOTA01, 2010, CD)

by Henry Schneider, Published 2011-06-01

Delayed Back Cover art

Delayed Back is a set of eleven electronica / dub / jazz / trance instrumentals by Noetics from Germany. Noetics is Ole Ohlendorf (keyboards and synths), Christian Schmidt (percussion), Christoph Majewski (guitar and guitar synth), Patrick Wurster (drums), and Arne Borchard (bass). They have been together for over ten years and Delayed Back is their third release. This is pleasant music that works wonderfully in the background. It is very low key, uninspired, and does not demand your attention. In fact, nothing really exciting or of interest ever happens on this disc. If you just want to chill and not have to think about anything, Delayed Back may be for you. However, if you are looking for that “sizzle” in music, look somewhere else.
