Fembots - Calling Out
FemBots originally envisioned their fourth album as an entire album using an assortment of junkstruments, musical instruments created from garbage by artist Iner Souster. Eight months into the project it became clear that the junkstruments simply were too unpredictable and too difficult to work with to sustain an entire album. Rather than scrapping the project entirely, the FemBots used the junkstrument instrumentals they had recorded as rhythm tracks, the rock and roll chassis that the rest of the songs are built on. The result is a collection of pop and rock songs built on a foundation of odd sounding home made instruments, producing in the end their most straightforward and strangest record to date.
