ELYK WOT
weg gegen ziel

floppi:2

info:
"Weg Gegen Ziel" consists of two parts, both recorded on the 2nd of july 2009. on the right you hear a live improvisation by Elyk Wot for the opening of an exhibition by Anton Schwarzbach at Galerie im Turm, Berlin. on the left you hear Elyk Wot taking their equipment back home on a wheeled transportation device. both recordings have been shortened from about 20 minutes to one and a half minutes by pitch shifting.

01. weg gegen ziel

KID IKARUS
demo party

froggi:32

info:
the title pretty much says it all: this album is compiling pieces of different puzzles. it is the funky seance of songs and yet-to-be songs that get together, celebrating a party, dedicated to unfinishedness and spontaneousness. Kid Ikarus gives us insight into his musical cache memory. "demo party" has some hits on it, that die-hard fans were demanding to get put on tape for a long time now. so you will find crowd pleasers like "robo / dino" or "...it`s a dance party", that you can now finally also enjoy at home, alongside more conceptual fragments like "schweinaffe". 3 hoorays to demo parties!

01. babypiano demo
02. robo/dino
03. unterwasserlevel
04. ...it´s a dance party
05. das bike lied
06. struthiomimus
07. the sloppy detective
08. flint
09. schweinaffe
10. exaggerate demo
11. rap vokabeln
12. fingertier bonus track
13. justdidit
14. kiddy key
15. weihnachtssingle

PETULA
elephant dresses

froggi:30

info:
join the choir, sing along! “Elephant Dresses” is spreading spring. this is where playful hits and fragile dreaminess meet to form melodies forever. Petula´s first album brings you loop folk and that great, frequently used falsetto voice, that sometimes makes me imagine him as a character in a Flying Circus cartoon by Terry Gilliam. 9 songs about sleep, despair, making out, little birds and hate. let´s all put “elephant dresses” into our walkman and „we´ll hang out with the most enchanting singing girls and guys.“ white tapes in an extra nice cardboard slipcase with a window. (2010)

PONK / DAISUKE TANABE
wool and water ep / split shot ep

froggi:29


info:
pOnk is combining tripping grooves with hip hop influences and post-rockish melodies. the concept behind the ep was to only use analogue drum computer beats, bass guitar, found sounds and celesta. Daisuke Tanabe creates spherical, yet very playful collages of electronic and organic sounds. his tracks on the tape were all created under the name Cat Eat Mosquito, which marks his earlier works. the two sides of the tape come together very well; although they sound pretty different they share this specific atmosphere. (2010)

KID IKARUS
fingertier

froggi:28

info:
improvised sounds that could only be achieved by the little guy with big eyes, the softest furr and super long fingers. "fingertier" is the Kid´s stream of conciousness on a inspired thursday afternoon, captured on tape. but the daubentonia madagascariensis (aka aye-aye or hay-hay) was the one really pulling the strings here. (2009)

>>visit: www.kidikarus.de

PETULA
brothers

floppi:1

info:
folksy rambles, indie pop hits, electronic sidesteps, beautiful sketches. "brothers" brings you 3 new Petula songs, of which the third one depends on whether you get the ep at live shows, online or via us. first release on froggi´s sublabel floppi records. (2009)

M()CK
back to the futr

froggi:27

info:
Think about early post-hardcore of the mid 90s, the sound of the ‘Midwest’ and add some inspiration by Postrock in the vein of the Chicago school and you might get a glimpse on what the music of Berlins new trio mOck sounds like: driving, melodic, irregular, changing between crooked rhythms and floating, minimal structures. Just when you think you get it, there is a surprise. Sometimes noisy and unhandy, the next moment playful loops, outbursts and minimalistic withdrawals. (2009)

TIDY KID
one week with my casio
froggi:23

info:
frickling over the top, electronic offset parts chase around the corner, care for a grandiose interplay between slow and fast motion moments, for charming deja vu situations and quiet laughing. musically translated blurred photos, movement through night light as well as pale landscape images. Hidden wit, braving the gap. out of focus and by this already completely back inside. (2008)

>>listen to: bla bla bloo!
>>visit: www.tidykid.com

PEER
gassenhauer ep +

froggi:22

info:
auf diesem wunderbaren release schlägt Peer locker den bogen von aus dem herzen geschrammelten klassischen indierock-klängen über klavierballaden mit one-take-charm hin zu berliner folk-liedgut. das tape enthält die vier regulären songs der ep (die als cd auf sitzer rec. erschien) + exklusive b-seiten stücke. (2008)

THE RABBIT THEORY
thanks! reflections!

froggi:21

info:
there´s a super likeable band from Zurich. they play wonderful posthardcore with a perfect diy attitude and they´re called The Rabbit Theory. the sometimes spoken lyrics may remind you of Reziger or The Van Pelt. this 15 song anthology covers the album "thanks but no thanks", the ep "reflections on good behaviour" and some old and rare tracks.

JORDAN
back to the gym, kid!

froggi:18

info:
the first ep by this fabulouse post-hardcore three-piece from paris. produced by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed you Black Emperor) and Brian Paulson (Slint, Mates of State) it brings you danceble hooks and screamy parts, it springs in different directions but always to find itself back in creaking intensity.
