Beileid by Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
Ah, my favorite jazz group has just released a new album entitled, "Beileid" and I can say I'm not disappointed. I spent most of last night playing it on repeat and I'm probably going to have this playing every night now before I go to bed. Bohren & Der Club Of Gore spawned the genre "doomjazz". The self titled track on this album feels like a mix of of their last two albums before this one, but that's not necessarily a bad thing sense they did it in a way that doesn't just make me say, "Oh, they're playing the same shit again". No, I'm still liking everything they put out.
What's most noticeable about this album is the song "Catch My Heart", which features vocals from Mike Patton. I'm pretty sure this is a cover song with just a Bohren twist on it. This being an instrumental ensemble I was worried vocals would kill it all, but instead, the vocals were perfect. Who better not do vocals for Bohren other than Mike Patton?
Obviously, there's the opener track which is just beautiful and atmospheric in all ways, but I'm not really caring for the background synth. Other than that, the three songs on this album are great and I'm glad to see this added to the collection.
P.S This album is perfect when played with rainymood.com
P.S.S I am buying the album, so don't bug me about how evil I am for getting the leak.
