Oh man, INCREDBLE production on these, especially on the second volume! Just NAILS that 70's blaxpoittation sound, but still I don't think that anything like this has been made. Shame that I don't want to buy any CDs anymore, but I'd love to have these.. little bit on the fence with that.

Holy shit. Now it's clear why there was such a "long period" (in our terms) of no further releases after ENV-4. But if that is the result the waiting was significant. The Cartel rocks. I want it now.

I would rather say the long period was after the last AA release. I really wonder how many tons of unreleased AA material there is, I'm almost sure they had a lot of recording sessions over the last years, AND not to forget the scrapped stuff from the Peppermint-CD-sleeve, at least this stuff must exist somewhere along with the remixed "High Flying Birds"...

Hmm... why does it say compiled?
I thought this would be something like an album...

Hmm yeah, though a little confusing saying: compiled AND produced
So is this a compilation of library music, or is actually stuff by them ?

EDIT: Hmm, obviously the latter - my brain forgot the promo videos.

Especially since on the first poster that still slides on fsoldigital.com says: performed and produced by AA.

maybe it's a mix of both

selected tracks with the sound they are emulating as well as original AA tracks along these lines mixed in?



oi....brian/gaz need to really just pop their heads in here once in awhile and say hello
we're a small and tame bunch and i've little doubt that we represent the majority of their MOST rabid fans :)

I think that refers to the fact that B&G probably more like just produced and compiled it, and (as you can see from the slides) most playing is done by guest musicians. Who knows.. but I'm 99% sure that it's completely new material, no compilation tracks.

The albums are meant to play out like soundtracks or mixes rather than straight albums - they're credited as Monstrous Bubble Soundtracks, not Amorphous Androgynous albums.

Nice artwork, hopefully in the next 30 days?

I think they're still sorting out label/release details - don't hold your breath for a release in the next few weeks!
