Humanoid - 7 Songs (De:tuned 12" + 10" mini album, July 5th)


Recommended Posts

Skipped a wide swath of other yet unlistened vinyl to spot-check this as it's hot right now. Yes, it's good, in part harkening back to the classic Humanoid sound and style while bringing forth plenty of fresh ideas, too. I sing with the choir and think that it's a bit odd that no download code is included, but. Pre-ordered the coloured vinyl, but I was probably at the end of the list as I got note that it was sold out - so I defaulted back to black.

Although I've been into electronic (dance) music for several decades I'm still repeatedly amazed by the versatility and longevity of the 303 (et al.). The simplicity of it is deceiving, the expressive possibilities an ever-blooming fractal of squelches, squirts, twangs, and squeaks.

CD version with seven bonus tracks coming out on FSOLDigital on 19th November. Bonus tracks look to include compilation tracks 'Far Point' and 'Tower' as well as 'Co-Pilot' from the Built by Humanoid bonus EP, plus four new tracks.

I'm sure I'll pick this up, even though I already bought the digital.  Any word on if that Flow Coma remix "Coma Flow", from the DJ Food mix, will ever see the light of day?  Loved that little tune, and it would fit right in here.

That's excellent news!

Will this be available on the FSOL Digital website. Can't find it on to there.

Went for the CD. Tower & Co-Pilot FTW, but all in all straight up 7/5. I do have a hankering for a coloured vinyl version, never mind which one, although I already have the black.

The two sound the same from listening on Bandcamp, but I'll do a proper side-by-side comparison when I can afford to buy the CD hah.

I think you're right.  I don't know that I properly gave this track a chance before.  It's a goodun.

I've received a few questions / requests, so just some additional info to keep everyone in the loop.

First pressing: black + pink marbled edition

Repress: black + blue marbled edition

The release now looks like Kevin originally envisaged it, with two colours if you swap one disc with the pink version.

The “14 Songs” version is easily the best acid house/techno/whatever album I have heard in years. And I’ve heard a few.
 

I’ve been replaying this almost daily since it came out. Great to also see Brian getting more recognition for this side of his sound. Dude is super-talented.

      Digital only. Currently only Orfan Atmosphere txk available, but it's rather different from the album version - better, I think.

      Every time there's a new release there's normally a fair bit of discussion in the relevant thread, so I thought it was about time to start a general FSOL thread. Also, I just started a new blog called Fractional Difference, in which I'll be going through every release and song, in order, and looking at various things... all the facts, connections with other tracks, and my own personal feelings about them. It's going to take forever (they released 180 tracks on the launch of FSOLDigital alone), but I'm quite looking forward to revisiting the whole catalogue over the next however long it takes.
      So far I've done an About page which explains my discovery of the band and running the various fan sites I have over the years, a discography page which I'll fill in with links as the project goes along, and I've done a couple of entries, for Bacteria From a Baboon's Stomach and the original release of Stakker Humanoid.
      Hopefully will be getting a few stories, bits of trivia and pics from Brian over the course of it to spice it all up.
      Anyway, the blog is here if anybody fancies following: https://fractionaldifference.wordpress.com/
      And, in terms of general discussion, this is still my all-time favourite piece of music:
      Weird that it hasn't changed for nearly 25 years.
