25/10/20 - New track, Talus, using the Stylophone Gen X-1

Stylophone report that their new Gen X-1 synth has been used by Brian on a FSOL track called Talus. Now, we know the band have a fondness for old and battered gear, but this piece of kit is a few levels above the standard Stylophone. The full track can be heard by checking the YouTube link below:

18/10/20 - Immortal 2CD and paths LP on their way to be manufactured

Gaz today posted artwork proofs for the 2CD edition of We Persuade Ourselves We Are Immortal, which will feature the five path longform version of disc one, with the Record Store Day MPB Remix on CD2. These have, apparently, been sent off for manufacture. The LP edition of the paths version has also been submitted to the pressing plant; while the CD edition should only take a week or two for manufacture, the wait on vinyl pressing at the moment means we're still looking at a late November / early December release date.

30/09/20 - A Closer Listen 12" picture disc

A few weeks ago we reported on a brief snippet of a photograph that Martin Boulton shared on Facebook, with what looked like a picture disc for a FSOL release. We can now reveal that the album is the first A Controlled Vista mix, originally released by Touched at the end of last year (or, indeed, early this year, as the mix wasn't available until the box set was released), and later released as a download from FSOLDigital. The album will be coming out on Touched Revolutions in the coming weeks.

06/09/20 - Immortal 2CD set on its way

Gaz recently mentioned on Facebook that they are planning a 2CD set of 'We Persuade Ourselves We Are Immortal', with one disc containing the 'longform single' version in five paths, and the second disc containing the Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble remixes released for Record Store Day last week. The longform version is currently due for late November / early December, so it's possible the 2CD set will come along at the same time - or possibly early next year.
