Our Cut Of The Day is a mind-blowing performance of “Paperhouse” by Germany’s greatest sonic explorers Can.

As far as krautrock clips go, it doesn’t get much better than this, as the band, including wild vocalist Damo Suzuki move from a gentle lilt to a full-on psychedelic jam in just over six minutes.

The original – and we think inferior – version of “Paperhouse” can be found on the band’s album “Tago Mago”, which was released in 1971.
