Ejiki contains ten constructions that guide you into a world of slow and bizarre ambiance. This soundtrack has a triggering film noir content. The darkened jazz vibes create visions of abandon residential areas, mysterious men lightning their cigarettes on half-lit street corners and stray cats wandering through sad creepy rows of houses. The images and concept of this intriguing album were done by the Japanese artist and film maker 不埒ライフ Furachi-life Fan. She also delivered one of the poems on band's debut album.
Senketsu No Night Club uses influences of trip hop, kraut rock to colour the lury moods. The Belgian guest player Izzy Op de Beeck (Detour Doom Project)shows his talents with soft but haunting adds of his flugelhorn and trumpet virtuosity. Electronic tunes are layered in the tracks and only show up after several deep listening trips. The album is detailed with gloomy precision while the sax dominates the slow dark romantic proclivity.
This is a quality dark jazz recording referring to Bohren & Der Club Of Gore, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and the Dale Cooper Quartet & the Dictaphones. Senketsu No Night Club released a doom ridden jazz trip (limited to 300 copies in a digipak) that will elicit grim moods any season or time of the year. We are hooked by the nihilistic sadness Ejiki generates.
