Lilting and haunting, as fragile as glass, as deep as the ocean. The second EP from poppy nogood is filled with introspective ambient drones and melodies crafted from violin, guitar and voice.
‘Yhnpivtr’ is a short EP in which Diropel continues to explore environmental atmospheres, including sounds less affected by Paulstretch effects. These three soundscapes have dark and psychedelic textures that immerse the listener in worlds of deep relaxation.
After years of silently releasing material without so much as a whisper, the mysterious hxw hxw (romanised from the Ancient Greek, meaning ‘echo echo’) brings us its first single ‘a body of water is a kind of mirror, i suppose’. These two songs have been remixed specifically for this release using elements taken from the upcoming album ‘narcissus stripped bare by his own eyes, even’.
Regular Fwonk* artists Phirnis and Katarrhaktes have colluded to devise this split LP. Resting somewhere between noise and ambience, Sleepers recalls the uncomfortable mode of comfort between the comatose and wakeful states. Fragments of sound play back like phantom memories, washing and repeating upon themselves as waves upon the shores of the mind.
This is ambient music as pure minimalist, smooth drones, and it sounds gorgeous. DR weaves together warm textures to create perfect headphone music for creating your own personal cocoon, sheltered from the noise of the world.
After some time contributing to the Fwonk* compilations and being one half of Venona Pers, echosonic has stirred from his torpor to create a winter-inspired single-track EP
Teetering on the edge of dissonance, Katarrhaktes summons two disquieting tracks from beyond the pale.
Two tracks of Damnation and Salvation, full of reverb soaked ambient drones, crispy beats and ghostly pads
Four tracks of ambient, pseudo-orchestral drones based around unresolved chordal sequences. The overall effect sounds not unlike an alternative soundtrack for 2001: A Space Odyssey, this is quiet music best played loud.
The Ambient Society deliver four tracks of fluttering beats, dub delays and spaced out soundscapes.
