The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble - Here Be Dragons 2xLP

Have you heard that The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation album called "Succubus" yet? Well, you should!!! It recently served as my soundtrack while reading "The Road" and what a perfect company it proved to be. Well, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation are actually The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, the latter just with a few less people helping out. And yes, they like long names and yes, they like to stress that they're an ensemble/corporation, but just like that other "Club" this Dutch outfit succeeds in creating amazing dark nu-jazz that will take you on a mysterious trip through space and time.

I actually prefer their Mount Fuji incarnation because it focusses more on doom and drone, whereas the ambient Kilimanjaro depends more on electronics. But, both bands will please anyone into other darkjazz music such as Bohren & Der Club Of Gohren (yeah, thàt other club) or let's say David Lynch soundtracks in general. The 9 epic and at times creepy tracks on this new album "Here Be Dragons" can be streamed entirely over at 3voor12. Check it out, and order the 2xLP from Ad Noiseam and while doing so, send them a note and bug them for a vinyl version of "Succubus" as well, will you? Thank you.
