Robert E. Livingood
Like some of the most groundbreaking underground music of the late 1970s, this music doesn't need to be stamped with a specific genre. It exists for purely for its own sake, and its beautiful.
Mokre’tzy Konstruktor returns to Dead Channel with The Mystery of Maybug. This genre-defying, absolutely stunning four track EP plunges head first into the murky depths of the netherworld.
Wonderfully bizarro melodies cling to crisped percussion, all shrouded in a smokey blanket of saturation. Haunting basslines, exotic resonance howls, sludgy synths drowning in the umbra, diabolical carnival organs, and stygian vocals, all breathe and shudder together in symphonic, lo-fi darkness. Evocative of The Residents and Throbbing Gristle but wholly unique. Apocalyptic lounge for the long nuclear winter.
"It reflects the concept of the whole, disassembled into parts and fragments. Primitive and simple. The metaphor of the beetle is that, having dissembled it into simple understandable details, it remains infinitely difficult to understand. It is impossible to know this until you yourself become a beetle. And so we go through these stages, and in each one we think everything is finite, but we all turn and turn. And who knows what follows the Imago.." - Mokre’tzy Konstruktor
