Brian is usually really late with the track updates, sometimes in the last day or two of the month.

Yeah, they're normally the 20-somethingth, I think November 2019's was actually on the 30th.

Last year's calendar album was absolutely superb, the more I listen to it the more I think it could actually end up in my top 10 FSOL records, so my hopes are high for this year's.

New track out today. Written just this month and suitably lush.

I’d agree that the 2019 album is among their best stuff. So many different vibes, sequenced perfectly together though.

Lifeforms and Dead Cities are the two go-to albums for newbies. The best of is really, really not. 

ISDN, Archives 5 & 9, Environments 4, 5 and 6.5 would be my next steps after that. But there's so much gold. Just be wary of anything labelled Amorphous Androgynous from 2002, as it's their psych-rock project which is mostly very different.

Yeah, definitely echo that sentiment also

Ross: Reached a weird point in my life that I now can't decide between ISDN and Dead Cities as my fave FSOL album. Is this what a mid-life crisis is ?

      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).
