Sometimes an artist with music so obscure and utterly impossible to describe comes our way, that it wakes us up at night in cold sweats wondering how the hell to present it.  Our newest artist, MALK (aka OF HUMAN FEELINGS, The Super Nintendo Chalmers, SCRAN, and 1/3rd of the band Mahatma X) presents exactly this type of dilemma. MALK was dreamed up by Philadelphia native Will Becker, who remains a bit of a mystery, even though we’ve corresponded with him for a number of months now. And we’re good with that, in fact MALK seems to thrive in the ill-light, dank corners of the web, like some sort of finely corrupted aged beef.
  
The Sunken Place is the first single from MALK's newest album ‘WMAIDIT,’ short for, ‘Watch Me As I Die In Time.'  If your familiar with Becker’s other work, you know it packs a great deal of mood and content into a short amount of time, often with little reverence for genre or musical theory.  With a razor focus he sets the stage, dealing his poison quickly to trap his prey.  It’s the kind of immersive, to-the-point storytelling which makes it ideal for the modern day attention span.

‘WMAIDIT’ runs through a bizarre alchemy of styles, combining tender moments of homespun folk and indie with dub, lo-fi grunge with off-kilter beats, and woozy ambience with all out punk aggression. Would it be ridiculous to class it as forest dub, post-punk-swamp-step, or folk-rock-wave, probably?  Regardless, we haven’t heard anything quite like it before.
