06/02/2020 : HARRY CLOUD - The Pig And The Machine

HARRY CLOUD

The Pig And The Machine

MusicCD / Vinyl / Digital
06/02/2020, Danil VOLOHOV

The thing I didn’t expect from Harry Cloud – is being so flexible in respect to forms of self-expression. It’s probably the first thing you should know before listening to “The Pig And The Machine” – nothing is obvious. Even though some things would seem obvious to you – like the introduction to the opening “Fantasia”, it doesn’t mean that Cloud would keep on going through the same paths. He needs just a few seconds to transform himself into the ghost of Tom Waits badtriping in Lynch’s Red Room. And then – change the background. You’d hear the tonalities of rebellious youth in his vocals through “Momo Island” and “School”. Harry Cloud is a good actor. He could make you think that he’s a lonely teenager or a tough-tattooed guy singing in front of dozens of fans singing his live-track “Brain” while his vocal chords are bleeding. Or sludge-kind-of-guy writing hard riffs and singing through distorted microphone about sweet dreams. That’s probably the best thing about “The Pig Machine” – his artistic volatility makes Cloud a very special artist. He’s like a new character in the same old Red Room – a man with hundreds and thousands of faces.

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
