Stcpocold - What Was Inside

Stpocold is a project by Novosibirsk artist Swill Klitch, who also operates under monikers Indu Mezu and Instant Movie Combinations and manages Cold Graey label. First album of the project (much more brutal in sound) was released on this very label back in 2007 .

Quote by unfairly forgotten culture researcher Bela Rose serves as an epigraph to What Was Inside. It declares radical uniqueness of personal experience. This uniqueness has direct relevance to Swill Klitch’s music. Although stylistic references of Stopcold are quiet obvious (angst pop in the vein of Galakthorrö and Beläten production), music is free from genre cliches. Yet it is soaked with all absorbing strangeness, twistedness of personal handwriting aligned with its own, self-made copy-books.

As Swill Klitch points out, What Was Inside is a story of inner mental transformations provoked by the loss of reference point. In this situation emotions twinkle and flicker, causing pain, joy, both at once. So it is in music: familiar elements encounter in unfamiliar combinations, and they seem not to recognize each other. Ferocious noise sounds almost ironic, absurd appears through solemn declamation. In spite of paradoxical nature of these encounters, they do not provoke disorder. Stpocold's music has weird integrity, and this integrity is like a promise that one can never attain any reference point without losing it.

Composed and recorded by Swill Klitch in Cold Graey Studio in 2009-2014. Vocals: Swill Klitch, Ир. Lyrics: Swill Klitch, except: (3) 3xyc, (6) Swill Klitch, Gamz. Mastered by Arnold_pR. Photos by Polina Vrublevskaya.

The Ancient Tapes of Indu Mezu - TWM Series I

This experimental series is a spin-off of the 1999's tape "Autumn" by Indu Mezu. The point is to make music with overlayed improvisations, recorded on various tapes with various speed and tweaks. Without loops or recombinations, only direct streams. I started using the same or similar software and hardware, trying to remember the techniques I used. To reach similar sound and meaning, to start something new from this point. To find out, what can I do within this unclear frameworks of the forgotten idea.

В первый сетевой альбом Instant Movie Combinations собраны орфанные треки 2005-2007 годов. Три из них предназначались на несостоявшийся сплит с Kryptogen Rundfunk. Один был написан в дополнение к композиции IMC~ на v/a ‎– How To Stay Young & Healthy In A Modern World, изданному Abgurd, и до сих пор не нашел другого применения. И еще один написан специально для тюменского журнала, который закончился, не успев начаться. Все треки переосмыслены, а также, где это было возможно, пересобраны и пересведены. Наслаждайтесь :)
