BORDEL MILITAIRE Same CD. Digipak
Absolutely interesting form of neofolk. Sort of "post-neofolk" with very intense deep ambiance who bring you back in the golden age of cruelty, war and symbols of totalitarism. A cocktail of classic film soundtracks, lounge and exotica tunes, and iconic 60’s production techniques. Feat. contributions from Boyd Rice, among others. Take 2 parts of 50?s lounge, one part Morricone, one part power-electronica, one part neo-loungecore, a twist of exotica and a dash of bitters. Shake well and serve with an afterthought of reverb!Bordel Militaire was formed in 2008 by David Tonkin (Isomer) & Ben Taylor (Shifting Shelves) as a lounge-industrialproject, utilising samples, live instrumentation and powerelectronics inspired effects. Drawing inspiration from their interests in 50’s lounge, Exotica, 60’s pop, and classic movie soundtracks, filtered through experience in the post-industrial underground, Bordel Militaire are a one-of-akind experience.
A gramophone turns lazily in the corner, as the smoke crawls low along the ceiling. Martini glasses and half smoked cigarettes smeared with lipstick, the click of heels on cobblestones on still winter nights. Lili Marlene sings of love as the waves crash upon the shore, and we hum to this tune with sweet whispers of bitter hearts.
