Re: RSD 2020 - Cascade 2020, We Persuade Ourselves... MPB Remixes, PNG (Weatherall Remix)

Wild, I love how it's like a modern day computer system logging into the computer simulation from the mid-90s machine that made the original Cascade visuals. Like an HD realtime modern day analysis of 90s CGI.

Re: enrico berio mixes amorphous andogynous

This is the second user this week that's made me question whether they're a spambot or not. Their profile details scream yes, but the post is just too specific. Wondering if spambots are now starting to use the GPT language models ....

Re: Pande-reviews: 2009.0 (FSOL - EBS Vol.4)

Just bought some of the Pod Rooms that I never picked up first time round and in this era of full-on lockdown (especially here in London where I've not spoken to a 'real' person (i.e. not over video call or phone) for over a month), to me they're like the nearest thing to catching up with old friend...

Re: Humanoid remixes & 12" comp tracks

What a lovely remix from Brian, love the sliding in and out from the ambient acoustics to Dead Cities era beaty electronics - like dipping in and out of a FSOL sea.

Re: COVID-19: FSOLDigital sale / physical sales suspended / New Humanoid & Yage, A Controlled Vista

Re-listened to those two ACV 'mini editions' over Christmas, forgot how much they took me back to the 3D Headspace Tour emotionally. Really lovely but desolate environments throughout - Like the aural equivalent of Liminal Spaces

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

Interesting, for me it's the synth section that starts at 2:10 that makes the track and really elevates it beyond the much darker album version. Ohmygosh yes, the first time I heard that bit was in the EP and I still remember the tears I had in my eyes at the prettiness of the synth bubbles (2:29 o...

Re: Forthcoming FSOL picture disc vinyl on Touched Revolutions

If yer into Dead Cities you really need the two spinoff singles/eps if only for the definitive (IMO) versions of My Kingdom and We Have Explosive

Re: Facebook comments and stories

Thank you for solving that mystery - my guess was that it was two of the adjacent tracks in the CD version put together!

Re: FSOL & Amorphous on Bandcamp

Some lovely person here sent me their copy of 'The Most Important Moments in a Life' a while ago so never got/heard the accompanying album, so picked that up along with some other stuff I didn't realise I never purchased first time around (Humanoid - Remixes EP, Intelligent Communication - Drive & S...

Re: first post and first song :)

These are amazing - Can hear the FSOL influence for sure but done in a lovely hybrid fashion of Lifeforms like natural noises but the darkness of ISDN and Dead Cities. Got the same chills as the long dark ambient sections of the 3D Headspace Tour. Fantastic work man :)

Oooh of course - I've reached a point now from this year that I'd temporarily forgot that not-working-from-home was actually a thing that people did back in the past !

Re: FSOL Touched Mixlr 4 - November 13th

Wasn't sure if this warranted a whole thread (especially as unless we get info from the guys themselves it's just speculation) but this mix raised something I've always been meaning to ask: I wonder which of the two of them (or both) were just so darn hard to get hold of that they have seemingly hou...

Re: FSOL & Amorphous on Bandcamp

Nice that's great news (not about the vanishing albums, them finally embracing Bandcamp). I wonder if this will replace fsoldigital (or at least, becomes the host of that sites content)
