13/06/15 - Eyebrow: Garden City on FSOLDigital.

The latest title to be distributed by FSOLDigital is Garden City by Eyebrow. The store is selling the CD, which is released by Ninety & Nine Records.

AVAILABLE ON CD ONLY

Paul Wigens (drums, percussion, electronics) / Pete Judge (trumpet, electronics)

Eyebrow is a trumpet and drums duo based in Bristol, UK, formed in 2009, and featuring members of cult bands Blurt and Get The Blessing. Its music evolves out of improvisations which are reassembled into structured pieces with an unexpectedly cinematic sweep, like journeys through slowly-changing landscapes. New album “Garden City”, recorded at Invada Studios in Bristol by TJ Allen, with special guest Jim Barr on baritone guitar and bass pedals, is now available on New York’s Ninety & Nine Records.

“One of the most beguiling records I’ve heard in ages: music of quiet imagination and intimate beauty. I hope a lot of people get to enjoy it” (Richard Williams, thebluemoment.com)

““Sepulchral, dappled trumpet and real live meaty drums; Eyebrow have been doing this kind of thing for a long time and have become very good at it. ‘Thaw’ – an insistent rhythmic ear-worm – is a belter” (Independent on Sunday)

“Atmospheric, haunting, fascinating. Four stars” (AllAboutJazz)

TRACKS:

1 – Blind Summit (7:08)
2 – The Golden Road (5:08)

14/05/15 - From the Touched FSOL Night chatroom

The Touched Music Radio Future Sound of London Night is well underway (check the forum for tracklist) and we've been informed that later in the year, Touched Two Remixed will be out, featuring two remixes of note: Humanoid remixing B12, and FSOL remixing Funckarma.

14/05/15 - The Noel vs. Amorphous thing continues

After complaining that even The Guardian couldn't be bothered to provide an honest interview, chopping up his words and focusing on turning the situation into a clickbait argument in the press, Gaz has finally spoken in full to The Quietus. Even though he still says it's nowhere near the full story. Read that here. Meanwhile, Noel's latest counterstrike is in Youtube format, speaking to John Doran for Noisey's 'The British Masters' series, in which he reveals he's destroyed the masters of the Amorphous album and has never played them to anybody ever. Watch that here. Meanwhile, highly reputable broadsheet newspaper, The Daily Star, have suggested that Gaz is the reason Oasis split in this article. Who's bored yet?

Online radio station Touched Music will be hosting a Future Sound of London Night on 14th May, which has been described as "I’ll Be Playing Tracks From The Future Sound of London’s Back Catalogue And Many Unreleased Gems." It's as yet unknown if these "unreleased" tracks will be simply From the Archives, or genuinely unreleased music, but it's worth tuning into to find out! Three hours of music, 14th May between 20:00 and 23:00 BST. Here's the Facebook event, and a direct link to the Mixlr page the broadcast will be streaming from.

30/04/15 - Monstrous Psychedelic Stuff

Yeah, it's pretty late in being reported. Am I allowed to cite 'personal stuff'? Anyway, Gaz indulged us with a three-part story of how the Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble series came together as a guest columnist for Q, which can be read online: one two three. Elsewhere, with this year's Extortionate Limited Edition Vinyl Fetishist Day over and done with, you can now pick up a copy of the 16 track, unmixed double LP edition of The Wizards of Oz direct from FSOLDigital, should you so wish. Or you could grab one from eBay for anything from £30 to £75...

20/03/15 - Amorphous take over theQuietus

Today, The Amorphous Androgynous take over the reins of online music and arts publication theQuietus. So far we've had Gaz's post-pub YouTube playlist (we won't be going to that one...) and an interview with Gaz and, apparently, Brian, who doesn't seem to say much. More will unfold throughout the day, so keep your eye on the site!
