I've always heard good things about these guys and I listened to a song awhile ago, definitely quality stuff but I need to give them more attention. Bohren und der Club of Gore Dolores 4. Review Summary: Bohren prove once again that they can make misery sound beautiful. Rank: for Back in , Bohren lost their guitarist and replaced him with a saxophone player.
Since this change, each album they release has its own unique sound and style, whilst remaining loyal to their unique blend of music. It mixed deep, flowing jazz with rythmic basslines. The direction taken on 'Dolores' then is a much bigger focus on piano, keys and synth.
It can be best described almost as sad elevator music - Simple chords and walking notes over ambient background noise. This is no way intended to sound like a bad thing, the rating should tell you that much. The synth is never over-used or sounding out of place. Although the bass takes a much more supporting role in the music this time, it is used to great effect in creating atmosphere.The blueprint of the album is layed out immediately with "Staub", whose opening notes establish the sad, quasi-religious tone that dominates Dolores. Although Bohren's music is often associated with the works of David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti, on Dolores the smoky jazz lounges of Fire Walk with Me are only sporadically revisited.
