Moisture - "A Freak Is Born" (Cassette)
When offered an overweight Yamaha Electone organ by the keyboardist of legendary Malmö kraut duo Beast, the recipient now known as Moisture took form. These tracks, recorded between 2013 and 2018, are the culmination of that process.
In approaching music production with an outsider perspective, this project in many ways acts as an hommage to the privately pressed records that inspired it. There’s a slightly warped and lo-fi quality to most of these songs. Some also mirrors the private press aesthetic in their seemingly adolescent vacuum of gothic veneer (Valley Of Love, Darkest Corners..). But this is not a synth loner journey entirely, as there’s two tracks made together with long-time collaborator Prins Emanuel (Cold Gaze, Manerbio) and one with DIY queen Dark Polo (Face Melt).
