This album finally threatens to regenerate into something you do not expect. I tried to put maximal honesty and sincerety in The Leave of Leaves and to create music I want to listening to. Without any allowances.
From post-punk to enveloping drone and post-rock, from electronic to raw guitars. But it's not a post-rock, it's not a slowcore, it's not fully lo-fi indie. And it's not willfully eclectic unlike previous albums, and the sound is now much more serious. The Leave of Leaves has a stem and base, tangible from any point.

I believe that this is a pop music of post-modernity, its leitmotif - the cultural and social exclusion. Chopped phrases in Russian and English bares an internal confusion and retrospective look in which I found myself. The farther into the forest, the inaccessible reference points becomes, the more foreigner you become into the forest, the more blurred distant voices heard. The Leave of Leaves is an attempt to build a hut and call someone to become your guest. At least a couple of birds.

Names, distances and dates.
We will forty, there will be rain,
Warm August and thunder.

The album is a logical development of the concept a musician uses for several years. His first works were recorded on a cheap mp3-recorder and were quite harsh lo-fi. Now the primary device is a smartphone (quality defects hardly noticeable - thanks to the experience). Perhaps an author still have to move into the studio and to polish music finally.

Recorded, mixed and mastered in september of 2014 - june of 2015 at home.

"Visions of high mountains and glaciers sweep over the mindset, as Thorn1, traverse an arête, the audience meanwhile watch crampons hold firmly, as ice picks crack in to position."

Track Name: Minus Mercury
this color of the wind
the sun is melting on my face
i ever walk alone
you are the message to the snow

from me
to the void
and I will be
so far as fast

will i forget the will
the sun is melting on my face
if I could fix a star
you are the message to the snow

from me
to the void
and I will be
so far as fast

and I will slow
my memories
and I will be
so far as fast
