Routines versus routine(s). When Bohren calls, it's already happened. Two World Championships and Olympic Games may be over, but Bohren's appearance on the scene heralds a flanking maneuver. And since drilling is drilling, you can throw at least half of the usual rhetorical devices out the window. This is not about resorting to repetition when all else fails. In Bohren's world, squaring the circle looks more like this: What do you do when your band has developed such a unique, unmistakable signature sound and the goal is to maintain that superlative without repeating yourself? The solution lies in the attitude and therefore in the work: studio work. Perseverance. Revision. Meticulous attention to detail. Precision. Diligent arrangements. Experimental orchestration with limited instrumentation. Vocals, perhaps? How about a Warlock cover sung by Mike Patton? A radical change of style is not on Bohren's game plan - as luck would have it, you might say. One thing is clear, Bohren couldn't be further from the jazz musician attitude - call it horror jazz if you must. But the fact remains: this is how it has to be. As melancholy as they may sound, Bohren's modus operandi is clearly combative.
