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!

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”.

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.
