159 / Phirnis/Katarrhaktes – Sleepers

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.

153 / Cuckoo Spit: Daisy Chain

What’s Christmas without a Christmas single? Cuckoo Spit and Katarrhaktes bring you a frosty, tongue-in-cheek ditty inspired by a seasonal classic along with a bonus remix. Why is Sister Susie sitting on a thistle? Take a listen and find out!

149 / Cuckoo Spit: Scarlet Tina

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 other’s 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”.

139 / L-Rai: Songs About Soccer

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

123 / Katarrhaktes: EVERYTHING TASTES LIKE BLOOD

Teetering on the edge of dissonance, Katarrhaktes summons two disquieting tracks from beyond the pale. Woven from manipulated acoustic instruments, these bleak explorations into the medium stumble between percussive groove and unsettling tension.

117 / Anomia: Glitchbait

Gross Prophet and Vasko The Pig – two of Fwonk* long standing members combine their skills on this 4 track EP.

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.

113 / Vasko The Pig: Warm EP

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.

097 / Ohsaurus: Life Time

Back for a third installment is the latest epic EP from Ohsaurus. More relaxed, chilled, and infused with the glow and warmth of summer, this brings greater emphasis on Ohsaurus’ house and dub influences. Nevertheless it retains his traditional wit, huge beats, wonkiness and all round ability to put a dirty great smile on your face.
