Stockfinster - Car Crash

Stockfinster - Car Crash (2009)

stockfinster is the artistic name of Sebastian Borg (a.k.a. Batti), a producer from Malmö, Sweden. He writes, plays, arranges and mixes everything, sometimes with a little help from his musical friends. Batti was the co-owner of the recording studio Gula Studion in Malmö, but it seems he has gave up the Studio in the last months.
2005 Sebastian Borg ("Batti") - stockfinster

stockfinster unofficially uploaded his first works, Red wood (June 2004) and Sunset (2005), in Bandcamp.com, including some tracks with his friend Helena Josefsson's vocals. He also released his debut album, All becomes music (October, 2005), in Sutemos, an On-line label from Lithuania.

After four years of silence, Sebastian has uploaded today his new work, Car Crash,
in Bandcamp.com. The album includes eight songs:


think again 05:56

duel 05:09

insekt 03:54

bystander 06:04



in transit 05:52

This is what Sebastian Borg himself tells about these songs:

"01. 'A crack in time' (from "All becomes music", 2005)
02. In 'Think again' the pad that starts off this track was something I came up with while working on something completely different. The drum loop was created in Fruity Loops – a program I only used for a short while. It is still one of my favourite drum loops. The trumpet is played by Petter Lindgård, an experienced session musician. He actually laid down this trumpet for an old track called ”Homesick” – that originates from the days when stockfinster was still a band – but his part fit perfectly here as well.
03. 'Duel' (from "All becomes music", 2005).
04. In 'Insekt', I came up with this idea when I was working on something completely different and I happened to distort the main output from the soundcard, making the drum loop rather nasty. I nicked the voice sample from a tv show about a couple of girls who were assaulted and raped in their house by a gang. It is a true story, which makes the track even scarier.
05. 'Bystander' (from "All becomes music", 2005).
06. 'All becomes music' (from "All becomes music", 2005).
07. 'Heavy feathers' is probably the only track ever that will feature me on vocals. I do have a lot of acoustic material that I intend to release someday. Some of it is instrumental and some of it is not. I did a version of this track with a melodica part. Ola Strandh – my mastering guy – hated it and convinced me to leave it out.
08. 'In transit' (from "All becomes music", 2005).

Most of recordings were made between 2003 and 2005 in Gula Studion. Helena Josefsson's voice features in track 06, "All becomes music", that was released four years ago with a video.

Me gusta mucho Stockfinster. Y la voz de Helena encaja muy bien con esta música. Perdona por escribir en español pero mi inglés es muy malo.
