Bohren & der Club of Gore
‘What do you do when your band has crafted such a unique signature sound and the aim is to maintain things at this superlative level without repeating yourselves?’, asked Christoph Clöser, Morten Gass, and Robin Rodenberg ahead of their eighth trip to the studio. The answer came as ‘Patchouli Blue’ - the ambient/jazz's combative, yet melancholic, 2020 release. For this year’s Le Guess Who?, they bravely face the challenge of transposing the dramatic density of the music captured in the studio onto the stage.
