Bohren & der Club of Gore
Surprised to see this band never mentioned before, especially after checking thier page ( and seeing they had 47000 listeners on there! I mean, I'd never heard of them either, so that kinda shocked me. And they even have an album on Ipecac. ANYWAY...

Just acquired their entire discography and it's amazing stuff. Droney, dark lounge music with some very very dark jazz and occasional, very light doom and noise elements. Most of it sounds like music to Twin Peaks. Great shit...

"unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds" I'm sure fans of Robe. would enjoy it...

yeah they're pretty sweet

atsonicpark 01.20.2009 11:12 PM

Also, they have a really awful name, really awful album titles and covers with skulls and "666" and upside down crosses and Bruce Lee on them and shit, but their music is amazing.

been listening to them for like a year.

their last album is pretty awesome, black earth bored me to tears but my favorite is the one with a german name, forgot how it is.

they are kinda like really good but mostly they are not that above background music, so they don't seem very relevant. when they're on, you like what you hear but you hardly get excited over them.

if you like them, check out the kilimanjaro darkjazz ensemble, they sort of have a similar vibe.

My favorite is MIDNIGHT RADIO, which is like 3 chords for 2 1/2 hours. There's just something about it.

kilimanjaro darkjazz ensemble? Sounds right up my alley, thanks!

I only have the new album.

I was listening to them some years ago. they were a lil bit hyped by the music magazine I was reading that time. some amazing stuff.
the reference to twin peaks nails it somehow...
I hate their name, maybe thats the reason why they werent mentioned before, too

atsonicpark 01.21.2009 01:40 PM

Yeah... Within 1 minute of one of their songs, I instantly was like "holy shit, the red room music from twin peaks!"

al shabbray 01.21.2009 01:42 PM

I love everything angelo badalamenti did for twin peaks, and almost everything he ever did.
bohren & the most ugly name ever are like the rockish version of it. I think I wil dig them out again, in a few weeks when I am able to stop listen to grouper all day long, hahaha

atsonicpark 01.21.2009 01:44 PM

goood. grouper rules too!!

al shabbray 01.21.2009 01:52 PM

I only know "dragging a dead deer..." but I love it so much.
do you know her earlier (more noisy) works?
it sounds pretty rad, but they go on german amazon for about 28 euros each. and I really wanna check before ordering for such a high price

atsonicpark 01.21.2009 02:05 PM

Yeah I've heard everything, and I like it all, though Dragging a Dead Deer is probably the only, uh, "Essential" one thus far.

I've been to one of their shows here in munich and it was so cool. No lights except those little lamps on their notestands and a fluorescent skull on the bass drum. would have been too creepy without their sense of humour; one announcement was: "the next song is for people who like to ride on the highway with 40 km/h". a doom metal feel with jazz instrumentation at 40bpm. Very cinematic. Great band. Looking forward to hear their latest release.

that kdje ep is like 40 minutes long, though.

they are worse than I/C/O/C.

atsonicpark 01.25.2009 06:30 PM

If anyone wants an album...

TheFoxBen 08.10.2009 07:13 PM

"Sunset Mission" is my favorite jazz album ever.

atsonicpark 08.10.2009 08:02 PM

they rule so much

Derek 08.11.2009 10:55 AM

Definitely, one of the best atmospheres in a band ever.
