The fact that Wenn der Südwind Weht possesses a similar cover photo (a pair of feet dangling over the edge of a pond) to the first Roedelius album is a good indication of the album’s similar sound. The ten tracks here are playful synthesizer exercises, many with Roedelius’ patented high-pitched melodies, reminiscent of a theremin. “Auf Leisen Sohlen” and the title track are highlights.
