The seventh album by Workshop (aka Kai Althoff and Stephan Abry) is an extreme. Its predecessor Es liebt dich und deine Körperlichkeit ein Ausgeflippter showcases fascinating yet disturbing songwriting, both textual and musical. Yog Sothoth continues in that tradition and moves freely through various styles: electronica, house, rock, industrial, triphop, easy listening, folk, and German circus cabaret. Despite the assortment of styles there is cohesion throughout — a Workshopification, if you will — that helps Yog Sothoth from coming across like a compilation album. Althoff’s lyrics are written in an idiosyncratic, inner-worldly code, while the accompanying music appears to be a blurred, dreamlike picture of something known yet unknown. Comparisons dropped in the past include Can, Robert Wyatt, Neu!, Pink Floyd, Red Krayola, and Boredoms.  • Previous album available on CD via David Grubbs’ Blue Chopsticks label  • Comparisons comprise a who’s who of prog, krautrock, and art damage luminaries: Can, Neu!, Floyd, Red Krayola, Boredoms
