Wronked, the second album from Fond Han, coming out on Exploding In Sound Records, is jarringly creative and wildly adventurous.
And it almost didn’t get made. There was no plan to record a new Fond Han album. That is, until band leader Thomas Baumann was met with an offer he couldn’t refuse. Seth Engel of Pallet Sound, and driving force behind the band Options, invited Baumann to come to Chicago and record everything he had bouncing around in his head. So, over a marathon five-day session, Baumann and a series of collaborators built the second Fond Han record from the ground up, creating a work that’s dense and dark, but uplifting when taken in full.
Songs like “Wronk,” “Ughed,” and “Shuffled” plumb the depths of Baumann’s psyche, exploring topics such as addiction, mental illness, and the breakdown of personal relationships over the past couple years. The songs strike a balance between the band’s heavier, noise-flecked elements and a gentler, aching approach.
With no expectations, he was able to throw himself fully into the work, and come out the other side with an album that’s singular in both intent and scope. Wronked is a brutalizing listen, but one that becomes fulfilling and enlightening when taken in full without a single preconception.
