156 / 3dtorus – Consumism

3dtorus writes: “Consumism marks my first release in 2015, I wrote it during two weeks with a heavy flu by the end of November 2014, in a strange state of mind, in a land somewhere between Codeine, Aspirin Complex, dream and wake, weak and weird.

“I think it reflects my listening habits in the second half of 2014, which were mainly instrumental hip-hop, trap, dubstep and dub – slow and heavy electronic beats, twisted synths, bass and more bass.

“The title came to my mind when I spun my usual thoughts about money and products as modern day religious artefacts and the effects of this approach on our daily lives in the western civilization. So, this album is for the transcendental entertainment which music provides, not political at all in itself but on the packaging. Enjoy!”

118 / King Imagine & Illocanblo: Winter Breath

Hunkered amongst the deep Russian permafrost, comes this new split album from Illocanblo and King Imagine who previously worked together on the Peony Lantern EP on Fwonk*.

Beneath the chilly pads, and percussion that sounds like cracking ice this album seethes with a warm, nervous electric energy, like a wild creature hidden beneath the surface of a frozen lake.
