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.
I'm spreading the word of this massive compilation which is due to be released this month, with all the money going towards Macmillan Cancer Support. The man behind this compilation is Martin Boulton, which he has been doing all the hardwork to get this compilation together and out there.
It feature's over 100 artists including The Future Sound of London, VHS Head, Arovane and the list goes on.
Confirmed Artists so far:
A God With Horns
Abereiddy Astronomical Society
Future Sound of London
Maps & Diagrams
Nonima & Dissolved
Segue And Pleq
Ten and Tracer
The Angling Loser
The Dandelion Council
The Inventors Of Aircraft
There is more info here on the facebook page and share it around.
It's going to be jammed packed full of gems.
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.
