| The cleaning robots
return with their first album in ten years. Cleaning Women, with
their DIY instruments, release a new album on Svart Records on
February 15th 2019. Titled Intersubjectivity, the album has been
mixed by Einstürzende
Neubauten's Alexander Hacke, which has resulted in the
band's curiously original approach to music sounding more organic
"We wanted the album to sound like how we sound live on stage, at least to our ears. We wanted to carry our junk instruments to the finest studio we can find so that we could bring out the smallest nuances of the sound our instruments produce. We recorded the album in the brand new E-Studio in Sipoo, Finland, with as few overdubs as possible. Alexander Hacke, who has three decades of experience with the clang and rattle of junk metal, managed to dig up the essential elements in our music. Studio sessions took a mere five days, as did mixing, so everything happened quite intuitively with little polish to things. That's why we feel the result sounds intergalactically fresh", comments the band.
Alexander Hacke thinks that "Working with the Cleaning Women was a wonderful experience all around. This Finnish trio is a unique outfit with an innovative agenda, inventing and building their own instruments, while delivering solid, danceable and very entertaining music."
After the previous album U the band have spent their time with a number of multidisciplinary projects, including music for documentaries and movies and live soundtracks to silent movies, and also played over 500 shows in over 20 countries. The band also took part in, among others, the Parallax art exhibition in Mexico City, which showcased Finnish modern art.
Cleaning Women also performs musical accompaniments to old classic Soviet-era silent movies. Their second studio album "Aelita - the Queen of Mars" was even named after director Yakov Protazanov's old sci-fi classic.
