SOP Battle of the Bands Features Catself with The Journey of All Perfect Creatures

By SOP newswire2


And a few words about the songs:

The Journey of All Perfect Creatures (2013) is my latest recording. There is also a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iu94RSwAXZY Like most songs, it came to me very suddenly. I was just practicing (= playing around with) the guitar and suddenly I had a nice melody and a moment later, the words. The lyrics surprised me, and the way that things that I often think about got expressed so neatly in this way. It fascinates me somehow that the whole world is based on living beings growing, dying and eating each other. It is both grim and fascinating. So I think it got into this song subconsciously, this fascination or surprise at how it is happening, at how matter (and maybe the spirit, too?) go round in the food chain. I recorded the song in my home studio, on several microphones and mixed it very carefully so I am really happy with the sound!"

You can buy the song on Bandcamp: http://catself.bandcamp.com/track/the-journey-of-all-perfect-creatures (I recommend you go for the wav - much better quality! - or the 320 kbps mp3. Don`t just listen on Bandcamp because the streaming tracks there are just low quality samples)."

My debut album, funded by international fans online on SellaBand.com, will be released this year. It has been recorded with the accompaniment of Polish folk band Saint Nicholas Orchestra and it has turned out great! The mastering is being done right now and the first single will be released in the spring.
