А почему Вы решили, что музыка должна быть драйвовая (в противовес НУДНОМУ) и УМНАЯ (если допустить, что ЭТА – "бестолковая").
Мне неизвестно ничего ни об этом коллективе, ни о моде дарк джазза в целом, я прослушал всего пару-тройку композиций и мне нравится, однако Ваш комментарий выпячивает не остроту и оригинальность МНЕНИЯ, но некоторую узколобость. Наверное, это неспроста.
Джой Дивижн - бестолковая и нудная музыка. Откуда у них такое признание? Наверное, многие повелись на модный нынче пост-панк (волна интереса к стрэнжэр сингс) и вообще на весь этот стиль и атмосферу (в чем несомненно заслуга Зе Кьюр).
They were gods of noir. Unlike other cranky lofi garbage sp00ky darkjazz (bohren is the only exception i guess ) shit they did something good and unique, miss them so much. Rest in peace. And i hope charlotte dump her new hipster utters..t bandmate. She deserves better music
I wouldn't go that far and I can't agree the rest of darkjazz family is crap and garbage, but I agree Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble is one of the brightest lights in this genre, having more diversity and discernable soul.
Will do!! But i doubt i will find anything you don't know already. So far:
- Heroin and Your Veins: Loving this band! but to me, rather than post-rock they sound more post-punk influenced. I feel they fit quite well in my "Goth stuff" list. Loving them! In fact they remind me a lot to one of my fav bands: And also the trees. They both have this dark surf sound to them. However..i have only listened tot heir first cd so far ^^'
- Fuji Doomjazz Corporation: Completely agree with you, less interesting sister of KDJE, but i need to listen to them more
- Dale Cooper & the Dictaphones: Completely agree with you as well. They are closer than Bohren but feel more interesting..more balanced, and very elegant!
I might be responding a "bit" late, but for all the souls who are looking for more dark+jazzy goodness, check out Povarovo. I've spent considerable amount of time trying to look into the depths of the "genre" - as Toma said, there's not much to look into. Terribly recorded, poorly mixed and pretty uninspired stuff - that's what lots of self-described "dark jazz" bands are, unfortunately. Stick to TKDE/MFDJ, Bohren, Dale Cooper Quartet and - mentioned above - Povarovo. And for anyone who reads this - feel free to correct me, if there's anything worthwhile out there!
Have featured a couple of Dark Jazz / Doom Jazz tracks in my [url=https://www.mixcloud.com/james-usill/cut-through-2-lets-rock-music-touched-by-the-world-of-david-lynch/] playlist of Lynchian music. [/url] (considering that most if it sounds straight out of one of his films). Among the tracks chosen I've included 'Horns of King David' from The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Esemble.
Are you a sucker for long band names that have at least 30 letters?
Are you searching for long band names without genre restrictions?
Do you know a band which band name is long enough and has at least 25 listeners?
Then I welcome you to our new group [url=http://www.last.fm/group/Collective+of+longest+band+names+ever]Collective of longest band names ever[/url] and please share your recommended artists with us! Thank you!
