they're churning out new old material at such a pace it's impossible to keep up and i wonder if there is even any quality control.

 

i'd like for them to release a totally new FSOL album sooner rather than later.

They (Brian Douglass and George Codbainn) make music like Aphex Twins' Outside Kickass Solo tracks, though with a bit more EuroTrance elements.

i haven't even heard environments yet...

it's a bit hard to keep up with their archive releases without shelling out loads of money...

You can get From The Archives Vol.1-5 on CD for 40 quid new from the boys themselves - http://www.yage.co.uk/1-2-3-music-store/process.php?pname=ShowAlbumDetailsProcess-Start&CategoryID=1&AlbumID=94 (though less if you buy the download versions).

 

But yeah they've sure released a lot over the last 3 or so years - off the top of my head there's From The Archives 1-5, Zeebox 1-3, Enviroments 1-3, The Woodlands of Old, A Gigantic Globular Burst Of Antistatic, Four Forests, not to mention all the Electronic Brain Storms and ISDN Transmissions and other stuff that escapes me.

 

It's all brills though :biggrin:

no I'm not joking, I've not heard of them.. the electronic scene here in Montreal is pretty much nonexistant and I only joined this forum a few months ago which is the only source of electronic news and info that I have - :boc:

LIFE FORMS is a great place to start, but for my money TALES FROM EPHIDRINA under their Amorphous Androgynous moniker is the best thing they've done.

i always liked ISDN the best

and I'm a Dead Cities man, my what a tangled web we weave.

Lifeforms, ISDN, and Dead Cities are the holy FSOL trilogy for me, but all of their albums have great tracks on them

 

 

the only ones i recommend avoiding are Isness and whatever the successor album was....good moments, but on the whole nothing incredibly memorable.

 

also, Environments 2 is highly, highly recommended...very reminiscent of Lifeforms...much better than the first volume IMHO

i always had a grudge against Dead Cities because of the cheesy album cover that reminds me of MJ Thriller. I should give it another shot.

I think of myself as a casual FSOL listener, basically if you have Lifeforms, ISDN and Dead Cities you have their essential albums as far as I can tell.

 

I probably should get Tales from Ephidrena tho...

 

But those three are the holy trinity. Essential to any electronic music fan.

 

I really really liked Environments 2 (probably my second favourite after Dead Cities) although I haven't actually bought it yet. I haven't heard any of the Archive albums but I'd quite like to. I think one day I'll just splurge out and buy all of them at once.

 

Environments 3 is sounding promising...

From the Archives volume 1 to 4 - worth checking out?

 

definitely worth checking out but i would go with the top releases that the others suggested first.

starting with any of these would really be a fine introduction.

 

Lifeforms

Tales From Ephidrina (Amorphous Androgynous)

ISDN

Dead Cities

 

Future Sound Of London

      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.

      Coming soon apparently.
      Environments 3 was about 2/3 newly recorded material so I reckon this will be similar or, fingers crossed, all new. It's been nearly 2 years since they put anything out other than the last of the Archive records, so it seems they're slowly getting back into standard 'album every 18 months' mode again after the madness when FSOLDigital first appeared.
      Some material from this was on their last podcast and sounded excellent, probably their most ambient sounding stuff to date.

      This is not very accurate yet, but i think you should know that brian from FSOL posted on his youtube account two samples of upcoming tracks for the sixth volume of From the archives series.
