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.
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.
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.

Aech_Rom presents a single release with one track and two remixes of Fake Moon Flight – jaunty and melodic, yet at the same time glitchy, distorted and basking in a warm digital glow. The remixes in turn add vocals, funky drums and throbbing dubstep bass.

Creating dark and brooding landscapes of electronic noise, XTRNGR creates sonic washes of harmonic distortion and ambient doodlings. Sounding at times like German Kosmische music, this is two tracks of brilliant electro beauty.
Smoke & Mirrors bring us two tracks of swirling synths, twirling guitars, big beats and luscious reverb, all presented with a chilled vibe. Sit back and relax to some tricks of the ears.
A two track single from BSMo, a post-modern bedtime story, featuring words by Joseph Alford and vocals by Bentley. Fusing ambient soundscapes with poetic story telling, New Object is a stunning sonic experiment.
