about

Moda Borderline is The Somnambulists debut album: released by Acid Cobra Records, it was conceived during the
live performance from Hotel Ambiente across Europe during 2007 and 2008, and developed through electro-acoustic
and improvisational performances. It was recorded in Berlin from the 24th to the 30th of August 2009 at Antje
Øklesund, an ex- furniture factory of the GDR now converted to a permanent figurative sound installation.
The eight tracks included in Moda Borderline are not just a kaleidoscopic labyrinth constructed of kinetic sculptures
and intersecting planes of conflicting meanings, once populated by weird and slippery characters struggling with
unintelligible situations: subject to any interpretation, this album is also the picture of a subtle and incandescent
mood.
During the gap between the recordings and their first release, the band has already begun working on new material
and further developement in their sound, as you can listen during their current live performances.

Track Name: Red Carpet
RED CARPET

Goddam evil trend
By a wire a drone I suspend
Man-on-man, end or mend
On this red carpet we strand

Scrub brush, dead hole
Noblewomen hustle their dole
Turn tail, get bare
Arm mines, handle with care

It tears up and levels tears up

Loud are the waves in this night, so rejoice
Crashing these rocks, they are spreading their voice
All the arrivistes and bootlickers shake their bad asses
They oscillate and hypnotize: take your own aim
Airlines and crankgears, invoiced and cranes
Ruby are feelings, so irradiate flames
Ride on Holy Joes, piggyback, whiplash, jog trot
Level these tears up
Track Name: Don't you want to devour this war ?
DON’T YOU WANT TO DEVOUR THIS WAR?

and now
get out
isolate
get out
information
fuck you, out!

forget
your bad
supersoul
move on
absolution
fuck you, out! 

and now
a cuss
grainy cross-grain
your nail
and its taste
the superman
flies high

get down
lil' girl
to supervene
you godsend
bright as grace
so crash-land me

a jar 
a beam
a giddy-great-head
you ride 
out the faith
then fuck you, out! 

rebate
this used
and stupid cloak
colleague
free the nation
the superman

strain your car and see
don't you want to devour this war
huh?

and now
get out
concentrate
get out
destination
tease it out

and thrill
and shout
and never stop 
walk on
to the most
perfect quake

strain your car and see
don't you want to devour this war
huh?

What is 
about
superman?
