Fembots-Calling Out-2008-JUST. FemBots originally envisioned their fourth album Calling Out (2008), 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.

Calling Out is the fourth album by Canadian indie rock band FemBots, released on September 16, 2008, with Weewerk. The album was originally intended to use only junk instruments created out of garbage by guest musician Iner Souster. However, the band reportedly found the instruments were not sufficiently reliable to form the basis of the entire album, and instead added some conventional instrumentation while retaining the junk instruments on the songs' rhythm tracks.

Toronto's Fembots will release their new record Calling Out on September 16th via Weewerk. The eclectic indie folk duo of Dave MacKinnon and Brian Poirier are joined on the album by Iner Souster and drummer Nathan Lawr. Souster is known for creating improvisational instruments from garbage, kindly referred to as "junkstruments. While FemBots found the instruments to unpredictable to provide the entirety of the album's instrumentals, they did form the rhythmic base for the songs.

While making their 2008 album, Calling Out, FemBots contributed two songs to the 2007 film The Tracey Fragments, a soundtrack done by Canadian supergroup Broken Social Scene. Calling Out signified a big change for the band, as they moved from Paper Bag Records, their record label for their first three studio albums, to weewerk records. The initial idea for the album was to make it solely using junkstruments, aided by the expertise of their new member, Iner Souster. However, the band concluded junkstruments could not sustain an entire album and were instead used as rhythm tracks
