Origin: Germany (Mülheim an der Ruhr)

I actually always wanted this blog to be quite diverse in the music that it offers, but somehow I got stuck on stoner rock and the likes. So this is my first attempt to expand this blog a little bit and post music from the other genres that I enjoy (jazz, folk, electro, hip-hop, classical music, etc).

Bohren & Der Club Of Gore is a german jazz band that plays a crossover of jazz and ambient music. They describe their own sound as an “unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath Doom and down tuned Autopsy sounds”. I have to say that I really love this band and I felt so lucky to be able to watch them perform at Roadburn last year. This is their contribution to the latitudes sessions:

"In the style of John Peel's legendary BBC-Sessions, Southern Records started with the Latitude-Series a similar project - a never-to be-repeated series of session recordings in a limited edition, recorded and mixed in one day in Southern's London Studios. The 10-minutes track Mitleid Lady is the contribution of Bohren & Der Club of Gore to this Latitude-Serie."

This is the kind of music you expect to hear in a movie starring Humphrey Bogart, perfect for a lonely night in a rainy city. Enjoy!
