Released October 2011 via The Static Cult Label | Recorded and mixed by Fotosputnik

Recorded immediately after releasing “Translucent Marmoset,” this second album was completed between Summer 2009 and Winter 2011. A direct successor to our first album in every sense, “Idiolects” picks up right where “Translucent Marmoset” left off - tape machine experimentation, thick drones, disco samples, open-g tunings, atmospheric guitar sweeps, and too many effects pedals.

REVIEWS:
"Most modern practitioners of the style attack its signature motorik grooves with punk-band aggression, but this trio will let them unravel into placid washes of sound, whose serenity works better to tamp down the spikes of anxiety that come with day-to-day life than a lot of prescription medications do."

Chicago Reader: www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/owen-flosstradamus-golden-birthday-fotosputnik-mc-zulu/Content?oid=4970655&storyPage=2 "‘Noctambulants’... is an 88-second guitar drone that forms the perfect sonic gateway into the type of world where everything always lands butter-side up."
Anobium Lit: anobiumlit.com/2012/02/22/review-idiolects-by-fotosputnik/ "...calls to mind a latter-day Flaming Lips/Embryonic vibe before dissipating into a languid spaced outro."
