Berlin underground beacon Gudrun Gut continues to confound three decades into her career with 500m, a full-on collaboration with Faust co-founder Hans Joachim Irmler. Tracked last fall at the Krautrock pioneer’s studio in southwest Germany, it started with improv sessions that stretched on for as long as 30 minutes but ultimately maxed out at around eight as the pair exchanged further edits and Gut took a scalpel to everything in her own environs.
