The Future Sound of London - Lifeforms (2xLP vinyl repress)


Recommended Posts

A much needed repress of the original double vinyl format, nothing new.  Discogs prices are inflated, so good for them.

Currently due in October. Hopefully if this sells well it'll help convince VirginEMI to delve further into their back catalogue and maybe put out some deluxe reissues.

Nice. Reminds me of that (possibly) dubious post about Dead Cities getting a massive 5CD reissue or something, nowt ever came of that unfortunately 

 

Edit: This one

 

I like the fact the last post is hayhook asking for a Lifeforms repress on vinyl

I would much more like a deluxe version of "accelerator" (there was on 2CD thing with just the remixes added wasn't there?). "Lifefoms" is one of my biggest disappointments ever, just a bigg mess of random noises and half-tracks without any structure or meaning... The seven "path" single is a little bit better. "Cascade" is awful. I stopped following TFSOL after this. "Accelerator" is still one of my most played records.

DJ Three played this for a young Rubin in a record store, and it changed my life. Really kicked off my interest in psychedelia.

      It's a lot less acid than other Humanoid stuff, much more IDM. Really good stuff. Digital is 50% off as part of the FSOLDigital sale. Rumours of a 12" to follow at some point.

      It's been out a while and yet I couldn't find a thread about it.
      This is a surprisingly good album , harking back to those incredible broadcasts they use to do back in the day. It has all the copyright watermarks etc to give it a real archive feel. While there are quite a few new pieces int this continuous 49 minute piece, they cleverly sprinkle in lots of old early 90s samples that had me misting up. Great stuff.

      FSOL's contribution to Record Storey Day 2017 is a triple-LP set called Archived : Environmental : Views
      One can guess that the first LP will be tracks from the archives, the second LP will be pieces recorded as part of the Environments series, and third will be 'Viewed from' tracks.
       
      I've been given the tracklist for the third so far:
       
      A1. Viewed from Pushkinova 7
      A2. A Place in the Wilderness A3. Viewed from Below the Surface (2017 Version) A4. Viewed from Little Boats A5. Late October A6. The Oldest Lady B1. Viewed Through Apertures B2. Viewed from an Obscure Angle B3. Viewed from Fer Hills B4. Viewed from Across the Room B5. Viewed from Rosey's Perspective B6. Viewed from Under Leaves B7. Source of Uncertainty (Original Long Mix) B8. The House in the Woods B9. Viewed from Above   (The 'Rosey' in B5 is named after my dog, which is pretty exciting).
