SCREAMERSONGWRITER is Stöj Snak's debut full-length album.
It has been recorded by Niels H. Sörensen over the course of last two years. Like on the previous releases, the recording process has been marked by a strong DIY-ethic and except for a few guest appearances from a his friends, Niels has done everything from mixing to artwork, which has led to a personal and unpolished end result but also created a iterative, creative flow in the song-writing.
On the recording process Niels has the following statement: "Since last time, I had the honor of playing my songs at a baby naming party, a wedding, and a funeral – the biggest of our modern rites of passage – which I think also shaped the way I viewed my writing (for better or worse) and because of it, I think the new songs have turned out more personal but also a bit more experimental in terms of dynamics and instrumentation (there’s a shitload of instruments hidden on those tracks for sure)."
On the record, the Stöj Snak has mixed the melodic and acoustic aesthetic from folk with the political engagement, raw energy and anarchistic approach from punk into 12 uncompromising and yet catchy songs.
