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.
Psychic Soviets / Spaghetti Calligraphy
Previously known as The Vudu Zoo, the Psychic Soviets sound like vintage The Fall. And depending on what you think of Mark E Smith and his rotating rosta of musicians, this is either a very, very good thing or something best ignored. It is of course a very, very good thing.
Bleep Bloop / Feel The Cosmos
Feel The Cosmos is an album length release from Bleep Bloop that sizzles with contemporary sounds – glitch hop, trap and dubstep elements via for supremacy.
8m² / For The Birds
This collection of ambient drones, industrial sounds and music concrete was originally recorded in the mid 1990s by Elmar Hintz on 2, 4 and 8 track audio tapes, giving the cold ambience a warm analogue glow.

With sweaty palms and a lump in your throat, you knock on her door. She’s beautiful. The curtains are drawn and the scent of perfumed candles is heavy in the air. You prepare yourself for the most perfect romantic evening with the girl of your dreams. Stare into each others eyes, tie each other up – but wait. This was supposed to be a home-cooked meal. Where’s the food? With a surge of panic as she tightens the final knot, you catch a flash of metal from the corner of your eye. Her expression twists with hysteria as she places the knife inside your cheek. “Smile”.
As a lifetime soccer fan, I thought it would be funny to do something musically with the sport, and this was the result. In this, each song stands on its own, while presenting their individual “stories.” There isn’t an overarching narrative or anything; it’s just intended to be a humorous listen. So yeah, have fun! – Eli
As you might expect from two of the noisiest artists on our roster, this if full of razor sharp beats and acidic synths. The beats twist themselves in knots, the synths are huge and the distortion would make Slayer quiver in their boots. This is a crazy as fuck delight.
Planned to be the first of three EPs covering the different styles of Mr Pig, this one is what you might call the ‘nice’ one.
Not entirely bereft of the droney, dreamy distortions and repetitions that are Vasko’s sound but here they are realised in, perhaps, a more traditional fashion.
Cirix’ second EP on Bubblectro and Fwonk*, a playful and masterful lesson in glitch with electro sensibilities. For more from Cirix and his fellow creative geniuses, head to www.fwonk.com
