Bohren & Der Club Of Gore – Piano Nights

26.00

Bohren & der Club of Gore is a German ambient/jazz band from Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. The band was founded in 1992 in Mülheim an der Ruhr by Thorsten Benning, Morten Gass, Robin Rodenberg and Reiner Henseleit. Originally, group members started out playing in various hardcore punk bands. In 1992 they produced a crossover of jazz and ambient, which they self-described as an “unholy ambient mixture of slow jazz ballads, Black Sabbath doom and down-tuned Autopsy sounds”. Piano Nights is their eighth album, released in 2014. In its review, Pitchfork writes: “Like their previous work, Bohren & der Club of Gore’s eighth album folds in lounge jazz, dark ambience, the languorous adagios of classical-music requiem, and the saturated romance of Italian film soundtracks. But while the German band’s earliest recordings were chilly and even brittle, Piano Nights is luxurious in its warmth.”
