"about as not me as it gets"

Oops. My recent suggestion* to a revered singer looking for worthwhile new collaborations was a fart in a spacesuit-style misjudgement: "'warped post-jazz' is about as not me as it gets," she noted.

Fair enough. But still, for some of us Kilimanjaro Darkjazz/Bohren und Der Club of Gore/Kammerflimmer Kollektief are operating in fantastically fertile territory. Kilimanjaro's vast & awesomely open-eared cover of doomsters St Vitus' Patra & their own Shadows show why.

* via Soundcloud & Twitter rather than over cocktails. But nice to be asked, all the same...

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble > Patra (self-released) > Shadows (from Mutations, Ad Noiseam)

NB: Kilimanjaro now hawking another cover (Moondog's Bird's Lament) & a new live improv album from spin-off The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation...

Bonus: Rameses III (a kind of brooding, glacially unfolding kissing cousin to Kilimanjaro/Bohren/Kammerflimmer) > Matanuska (from Matanuska, Music Fellowship)

Note to self: need to track down the Gregg Kowalsky remix of Rameses. & bring on the new Type release, 'I Could Not Love You More'.

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
