Bohren & Der Club Of Gore are a 4 piece, ambient jazz group from Germany. With 8 albums under their belt since 1992, they're well versed in creating an ambiance noir.
My first taste of Bohren & Der Club Of Gore was from their 2002 album "Black Earth". Super dark, instrumental, ambient jazz that features piano, percussion, stand up bass, and a sax. This release (Piano Nights), along with the other albums I've heard from them, all have the same vibe and feel to them. However, I'm completely and totally ok with this.
B&DCOG have this eerie air about them. I would describe their music as something that would be playing on a dusty, cob web infested record player in a decaying coffee shop next to a graveyard. It's soothing and unsettling all at the same time. As if you feel something is going to pop out you and kill you, but you've already accepted death.
The instrumentation and composition on this album is masterfully brilliant. You can tell by the way this album was written that they've been at this for years and know exactly what they're doing. Every note laid out beautifully. Every drum beat timed exactly. If you want something different to just vibe out to and chill with a morning coffee and cigarette then this is EXACTLY what you're looking for.
