"Den Sindsyge Broders Bon" is an instrumental soundtrack of Nordic death tango. Guitars, banjo, upright bass, accordion, musical saws and percussion interweave a glorious folkloric journey which reminds us of an unnerving Weimar Republic cabaret troupe or an intoxicated Tom Waits rattling out a musical accompaniment to old, fireside murder ballads.

- krügers medbragte – with their equally phonetically baffling debut album, den sindsyge broders bøn. but hell, music is a universal language. so i’ll reduce it, y’know reductionally, to fifty six minutes of acoustic doom and pseudotango. it’s all lovely and wooden – crash boom klanged out on upright bass, guitar, saw, banjo, accordion and the bandoneón, the south american tangoers concertina of choice. all instrumental, in a deliciously odd cabaret kindofway, like yann tierson steeping in glutinous nordic liquer, or tom waits’ swordfishtrombones carved from dry timber instead of rusted scrap. it’s decidedly tobacco warm and gloriously dark, smeared in smoke and scorned love and dust like a norwegian jesse james soundtrack. dark and black, and mahogany red as blood in the moonlit forest. chamber music for ghost towns. lovely stuff, though i keep thinking of the wheezing jazzy three piece that plays in the nightmare before christmas…
