I've been listening to pretty much nothing but Bohren for about a week, and need more music in a similar vein: extremely slow and at least somewhat jazzy. Details regarding what I already know/like below the fold.
is pretty much my perpetual jam at the moment. I love all the albums, but have especially been enjoying the extra-glacial pacing of the last few albums (roughly Geisterfaust up to the present). I need more of this sort of thing: [very] slow, dispassionate, jazzy (for some value of the word jazzy), moody (yeah, I know that's sort of at odds with "dispassionate"), having a nocturnal/crepuscular vibe (and bonus points for an actually vibraphone), cinematic/sprawling/evocative.
Artists I already know/like that scratch this itch
- Angelo Badalamenti
(faster than what I'm looking for, but the right feeling)
- Barry Adamson
(yes, I realize that the short answer to this question may be "go watch some Lynch films")
- The Necks
, from "Hex" onwards
- Tindersticks, specifically the "Trouble Everyday"
- Shivaree's "New Casablanca"
Things that may spring to mind, but don't work: Morphine (love them, but too much energy); Mazzy Star (again, great, but I want slower), Cowboy Junkies (a little too pop).
I'm more looking for instrumentals, although vocal tracks with a seriously chill delivery would work (I'm envisioning something like Neko Case/Anna Calvi/Rufus Wainright on a morphine drip).
Thanks in advance for any recommendations, and if you have any ideas for non-music art (films/visual arts/whatever) that seems to fit this theme, I'd love to here about them. And on preview, thanks for bearing with all the parentheses; I really need to work on cutting back...
