Whenever you feel like moving in slow motion and perceiving everything around you as the setting of a monochrome film noire, stick on some Bohren & Der Club Of Gore. Beileid is their 2011 seventh album, and it doesn’t mess with the winning Bohren formula, apart from the surprising presence of vocals, on one track, by Mike Patton no less! First time on vinyl.

- Beileid by Bohren & Der Club Of Gore
"Take care America, wherever you are". The words of Jack Killian as he wound down another edition of "The Nighthawk". This film noirish soundtrack would fit perfectly on an episode of "Midnight Caller" featuring sleepy Rhodes piano and vibraphone overlaid by wandering clarinet. Mike Patton adds terrifying vocals sounding at times like a mutant sheep on the cover of German hair metal band Warlock which like everything else Bohren related is slowed down to a pace even a snail would describe as sluggish (there's a joke there somewhere). This is an odd, mutant jazz crawl, like the soundtrack to the journey of a particularly sleazy sloth. The three tracks creep along in an eerie jazz noir manner.
