The Future Sound of London (FSOL) drop new album ‘Environment Five’

I’ll keep this brief. The Future Sound of London have a new album out – Environment Five.

Following on from the themes of the first 4 Environments albums, Five explores the space / time / dimension that exists when we die. The moment of departure.

It includes appearances from Daniel Pemberton (BAFTA nominated / Ivor Novello winning composer), Raven Bush (Syd Arthur) and Riz Maslen (Neotropic).

The album is available on CD/vinyl and digital direct from the yes, still active, electronic legends Brian Dougans and Garry Cobain. Whilst the FSOL duo might not be as prominent as once they were, their music still captivates – and, they are still recording. The previous four Environments albums were mostly composed of archival material – this one, their fifth, is all new, recorded earlier this year.

The Environment series originally began as an archive of previously unreleased recordings but Environment Five features thirteen all new songs recorded in the first half of 2014.

So when you’ve stopped masturbating to all the Aphex hype – take a listen. You’ll be very glad you did.

There’s a bonus 3 track EP if you order the album direct via their FSOLdigital store. Here’s a preview
