122 / Stratosonics: BuzzFeed Baby

Two new songs from Fwonk*s regular shit-kickers, Stratosonics. First up is BuzzFeed Baby, an ode to the popular social website for morons, followed by a brand new version of Yeah Yeah Yeah, which first appeared on Sonic Boom Boogie back in 2011. Two slabs of in your face rock and roll, and the whole single lasts 159 seconds.

121 / Phirnis: Lovers

If someone said to you, “I’m going to play you a song about love”, what would you expect to hear?

The basic ideas for Lovers had been fostering for months, coming on the heels of last year’s full-length album, Feeding Lions. This standalone new track is ripe with tension, a recording both unrelenting and oddly beautiful, like the proverbial sound of cymbals crashing. It was written and produced by Kai Ginkel aka Phirnis, with an astonishing remix by Katarrhaktes on the flipside.

120 / Almark: Tape Head

Retro feelings and deep synth basslines make up ‘Tape Head’ put to snappy beats and fantasy style keyboard playing. With its B-side IC (live version) a modern recreation of what sounds like influences to Tangerine Dream and film music playing as one.

115 / Heskin Radiophonic: Tuomio

Heskin Radiophonic returns to Fwonk* for the first time since 2011 with Fwonk*s very first single release: two tracks of Damnation and Salvation. These tracks are full of reverb soaked ambient drones, crispy beats and ghostly pads.
