Instrumental Of The Day: Neu! - Seeland

In the next couple of weeks, I'll be compiling a list of some of the best 'rock' instrumentals. As always, 'best' doesn't necessarily mean that they are the most technical guitar pieces - while some will inevitably be - rather they will be a group of instrumental pieces that are gems on the albums for which they appear. Leading up to the 'Best Of List,' I will be peppering my blog with 'Instrumentals of the Day,' so please stand by. If you'd like to follow my daily posts, please click on that Facebook icon over to the right. :)

Perhaps many of you haven't heard today's artist before. Neu! was a German group that existed for a short time in the early 70s, whose musical influence has impacted artists like David Bowie, Joy Division, Gary Numan, and a whole slew of others. Today's track - 'Seeland' - appeared on the Neu! 75 LP, and it is not only a great instrumental, but my favorite track by the band. Check it out below.
