199 / tOtALcULt – Beats From The Black Lodge

“I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”

Splicing together some mountainous beats and esoteric, eerie samples from the classic show Twin Peaks, tOtALcULt returns to Fwonk*. This album needs to be played loud, and let those cavernous beats pulse through you.

This is some damn fine coffee, and hot!

198 / Viejos Hombres de Abejón – The Library of Noise

Six years since the Viejos Hombres first landed with a blizzard of distortion, they are back. This is a soundtrack for our current dystopia. It’s the rally of the drums in the revolution, it’s the rave of the apocalypse. In short, it sounds like the sky is being torn apart.

Mixing in the original album’s swirl of ambience and noise, this new EP throws in influences ranging from My Bloody Valentine through The Orb to Fuck Buttons. It is loud and brutal, yet hypnotic and mesmerising.

197 / ktfu – no death

ktfu – or kill the fucking urge if you’re not into the whole brevity thing – has been a long-standing contributor to Fwonk* compilations and a member of the community. This is his debut album, which brilliantly merges industrial music, synth pop cyber metal and more into a cohesive whole. Soundscapes fizzle and swoosh to robotic rhythms and unleashed guitars whilst above it all are first class (heavily processed) vocals and lyrics.

All songs written, performed, produced and mastered by ktfu – Soundcloud / WordPress

194 / Bachelor Machines – Breathe With The Machine


Bachelor Machines – one of the founding member of the Fwonk* roster – swaps his normal tracker based techno, for something altogether different. This is a 68 minute album of sheer ambient bliss, with beautifully constructed and layered pads, drone and effected acoustic passages. The album is comprised of 3 movements – two epic 30 minute ambient symphonies of sound, followed by an 8 minute coda. This is an exquisite album, one to wrap yourself in, lose yourself and watch time shift out of balance.

192 / hxw hxw – the artist

In this six track EP, hxw hxw paints landscapes depicting the tortured spectrum of a broken mind, from aggression to indifference to loneliness to anxiety, entirely created using manipulated samples from anime.

189 / Andrulian – The Girl With The Long Flowing Hair

Andrulian has created something special with The Girl With The Long Flowing Hair. All sound elements were initially forged using the Virtual ANS software synthesiser that analyses images into microtonal sound. All sounds were derived from the one image, by Laura Woermke. This was then tweaked, manipulated and arranged using the Hollyhock II DAW, using granulation, looping, generative rhythms.

The end result is an album that defies categorisation – it is a hugely daring piece of deconstructed sonic art, that incorporates drones, ambient textures and glitches.

188 / Trium Circulorum – For The Sad, The Mad and The Lonely

For The Sad, The Mad And The Lonely is the new full length album from Trium Circulorum. Startlingly sparse, primal and beautiful, these tracks weave gentle melodies with minimal beats in a blend of contemporary techno and classic kosmische.

In a Fwonk* first, this album is available in a strictly limited edition of 25 audio cassettes. 15 are available from our very own Bandcamp page, 10 direct from the artist himself. The cassette has been professionally produced on high quality audio tape, in a green glitter box
