NEW FREDDY KNOP [P()NK] EP POLYPHONIES - 2013-05-16
Freddy Knop, who you might have met through froggi records as pOnk, has a new EP out on the fine portlandian label circle into square. it is called `polyphonies` and features some of the early, revisited, pOnk material, which we, here at froggi hq, think of as seminal tracks that show the already fully elaborate basis of his very own approach to making beat orianted music. now finally for all of you to hear, pieces like urashima and hokoro are just straight up beautiful. the whole EP is! make sure to check it out. there also is a great video by Freddy and Felix Zimmermann for the song `raum`:

breaking news! the new froggi tape will hit the streets and cassette players on september 11th. LEM PHAGO and THE RABBIT THEORY- two bands, haling from switzerland, who mix an agile type of stop-n-go-ish postrock with what ever the fox they want. get out your calculators, kids! froggi:31 is a collaboration with the swiss tape label Crystal Barrel, which is celebrating it`s first release with this one. quoting Crystal Barrel: after more than a year in the talking, the split-tape has become a mighty fine, white reality.

ELEPHANT DRESSES ::: OUT APRIL 16TH - 2010-04-06
album out on april 16th


PETULA
elephant dresses
froggi:30


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]

>>listen to: we´ll become p( )rentheses

HOMEPAGE TROUBLE - 2010-04-06
...back in full effect soon...

UP NEXT: PETULA ALBUM - 2010-03-09
after a couple of eps over the years the crown prince of falsetto, the guy behind guitar loops like summer beams, yes PETULA will release his first album. it will go by the name of "elephant dresses" and it will see the light of day on the 16th of april. the release show will be on the 3rd of april at Madame Claude, Berlin-Kreuzberg. ...more news soon!

FINGERTIER // FROGGI:28 // OUT NOW - 2009-10-22
huhu..keine zeit grad...aber hier wird alsbald was hingeschrieben...


BROTHERS EP // FLOPPI:1 // OUT NOW - 2009-10-16
Petula's new ep “brothers” - a slowly waking sunbeam. glockenspiel, tremolo guitars, tambourine and melodies that you want to sing along to on a fall day like this. it contains 3 to 7 songs, depending on how, where and how many copies you pick up. but let's quote the man behind the music: "Two songs will be available online and digitally, y’all know the game, old stuff, been there done that, where’s the twist in that? Well, there is a third song. There are 5 third songs, actually, all clocking in at one and a half minute and thus perfect to be released on the fourth most beautiful of formats: The 3,5” floppy disk. These third songs will be released consecutively, gently replacing one another. One for each week of touring, one for mail orders via Floppi Records, one to be released on the new Petulasite. Expect folksy rambles, indie pop hits, electronic sidesteps, beautiful sketches."

yay! today is the day that we celebrate nautical punk rock instrumentation, cried out words that split up into their smallest parts to be assembled back together in forms of fimo...

VOM SEGELN : EHEMALIGE ZUKUNFT

>>listen to: heute maurer, früher mörder

(some words in deutscher sprache:)

Manchmal vergisst man ja, wie Punk Rock eigentlich geht. Oder gehen sollte. Ungestüm und rotzig, aber das herzlich und voller Elan. Mit Kopf, Herz und Bein witzig und geistreich sein, Energie raushauen, Standpunkte beziehen. Charmant Unabhängigkeiten zelebrieren im Rahmen einer D.I.Y.-Basis, die verdammt nochmal immer noch mehr Frische und Grandesse beinhaltet als so einiges anderes. Mit Texten inhaltlicher Relevanz. Das Ganze meinetwegen auch inkl. Bier. Vom Segeln nehmen einen genau an diesem Punkt mit; wo Bass und Gitarre munter ihre Rollen tauschen, während das Schlagzeug die halb geöffnete Tür zerbrezelt und der Gesang zwischen Schreien, Rufen und Flüstern herumwirbelt. Zwischen den Leuten im Publikum sowieso. Voller Hingabe und Seele in den Spuren von Jensens Kram, EA80 und Rites Of Spring. Ehemalige Zukunft - bitteschön!

ONE WEEK WITH MY CASIO // froggi:24 // out now - 2008-11-01


YAY!!!!!

TIDY CASIO COUNTDOWN - part 3 - 2008-10-28
a programmatic manifestation, within the title already. In addition: the finally performed launch of six days' week. 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. what an alternating Brisbane New York artist mind is able to afford, and already did some times on diverse small, world wide scattered net labels - finally now in excellent shape on froggi tape. yaay!



TIDY CASIO COUNTDOWN - part 2 - 2008-10-24
TIDY KID - I Lost My Mind - Video - from the warmly awaited next tape release One Week With My Casio.

AHOI, 2007 // trt / - 2007-12-22
2007 is getting old and due to my new raw material source's slowness the anthology tape of THE RABBIT THEORY will not be out before january next year, i guess. in the meantime you should get to know the theorists here.

2007 has been the year of Ampl:tude, Jordan, Elyk Wot, Winter Took His Life and Björn KLeinhenz. 2008 will be the year of Froggi Records on the moon.

what's ahead:
* Ampl:tude will record stuff 'inbetween the years'
* Björn Kleinhenz + Winter Took His Life will be on tour in jauary '08
* a magnificent little Froggi Allstars tour is intended for early '08
* Jordan will hopefully be touring germany again in march
* + tons of new tapes to come... (tons?)

for some releases mp3s have been uploaded. enjoy!

i found this new friend in the mail today:

thank you, Anja and Christian!! *

a happy whatever to all of you. (schnee in neukölln)

ELYK WOT // froggi:19 // - 2007-10-13
something wonderful happened: ELYK WOT was born recently.

recorded, handicrafted and silently released in 3 days 'the new thing' on froggi records is fresh as can be! yes, ELYK WOT is fast as lightning. ELYK WOT is the boy(s) who like(s) noise, but ELYK WOT also likes little melodies and climaxes, is in love with buzzes and delays, fancies chance, has an eye on recording to tape and is always looking forward to going on vacation with cousin tienchen and aunt inge.

PETULA & KID IKARUS
collaboration ep

froggi:33

info:
zwei solo-typen legen zusammen und setzen auf laune vs. laute. eine illustre mischung aus folkiger zerbrechlichkeit, unterhaltungsdampfhammer und verschmitztheit in klang und wort.

01. so-so-someone
02. wooden foxes

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

>>visit: elyk wot @ myspacKKK

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

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)

>>listen to: we´ll become p( )rentheses
>>visit: www.petula.org

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!

PEER

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)

>>listen to: gassenhauer no.2

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.

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.
