    Ongoing Discipline presents the debut US release of Red Wine and Sugar. The Melbourne-based duo of Samaan Fieck and Mark Groves conjures worlds in the liminal space between the sounds of Robert Ashley and the cinema of Robert Bresson. Theirs is an approach which slyly inverts the concerns of power electronics to detail something far more disquieting - the condition of modern city life and its attendant worries. Joe Talia glass-mastered CDs in eco-friendly wallets.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Benchmarks / Stark via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Stark (13:04)
Some days I’m fighting for the duration
Staring in the bathroom mirror
To observe my own face flushing
There’s something fundamentally demeaning
That comes with this implied taunt
To its captive audience
What I am worried about
is the dill plant on my second-floor windowsill
(burn your incense) *text in red
Asking permission to change the showerhead
On my hands and knees picking up bits of fluff
and it's not about the germ factor
"Clean house, clear head"
A house full of clutter, dirty dishes, and cat hair forming tumbleweeds
Drywall that doesn’t belong to us
Focus more on yourself and your living quarters
Those you can control
We want to make irreversible choices
about wall fixtures
and rash decisions at the animal shelter
Talking helped
Acknowledgement helped
Medication helped
Substances helped
Exposure helped
Friends helped
I fall down
I get up
I know that I’ll fall down again
Sometimes I nail it, and other times I stumble
And I’ll continue to
They don’t want to own something
But they don’t want to live in a home
That’s owned by someone else
