[Music] Radare – Der Endless Dream

There’s always a band that manages to slip into the cracks, no matter how carefully I try to research what’s new.  Take Radare for instance – a band out of Wiesbaden, Germany, who specialize in a noir-jazz (maybe darkjazz?) style that reminds me of Die Haut, who gained fame collaborating with Nick Cave a lifetime ago, and the incredibly prolific Bohren & der Club of Gore.

Think of a psychedelic rock band influenced by Jess Franco films playing jazz with Twin Peaks reruns being played near the bar.  This is the vibe I get as I groove to the album.

[Music] E.E. Engström & The Twin Street Tree Trunk Love Ensemble – Dive Bar Death: The Necrophilic Act of Remixing

Warm gloom is a great way to describe this album.  Darkjazz master E.E. Engström makes another appearance on the blog (and we’re honored to showcase his work, by the way), providing a smoky, twangy, slightly muffled and claustrophobic work to pound your bottle of homemade absinthe to.  Each release has a gorgeous creepiness to it, so I intend on following his development as an artist.
