Bohren Und Der Club Of Gore - Sunset Mission
This record can adapt to almost anything I'm doing - I listen to it when I cook, when I shower, when hiking, but it's perhaps best for nighttime, I have a cocktail in my hand, and I'm looking over the city lights. It is cocktail music in a way, but very dark. It's a very soothing record, to the ears and the soul. I actually put it in a metal category, even though it's more jazz, because the mood of it is so dark. They're opposites, but it works. In music that I make, even if it's subconsciously, I try to bring together the beauty and the dirtiness of rock. I love the contrast and dynamic of that.
