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

Post by Ross » Mon Mar 30, 2020 12:26 pm

Announcement on FSOLDigital:
Coronavirus (COVID-19)
FSOLDigital has suspended all postal sales for 3 weeks.
You can still purchase vinyl, CDs and merchandise but it won't be dispatched until the end of April - thanks for your understanding.
Stay safe people.


To coincide with this, the band are also offering the main digital catalogue with a 50% discount. This only applies to Dougans / Cobain releases, not including the calendar albums.

This sale includes the two new digital EPs:
Humanoid - KAAGE EP
&
Yage - Pygmy EP

And three A Controlled Vista records:
A Controlled Vista (the Touched by Silence mix)
A Controlled Vista 2.7 - a new mini-mix
A Controlled Vista 5.6 - a new mini-mix


FSOLDigital is running really slow - no idea what that's about. Maybe lots of people enjoying the sale? Although it's never been like this on release day before...

Here's the official cover for A Controlled Vista:

What a lovely surprise - Grabbed just the A Controlled Vistas (vistii ... Or is vista plural anyways ?) today so as to not overload the seemingly crushed servers. Will grab all the rest sometime this week :)

That banner was from 2012 when the EP was first announced. Appeared on the relaunch of FSOLDigital when it changed to the current design.

Today, will not work in the afternoon. So, it will be accurate 2nd deep immersion into the new releases. Agreed, at least the KAAGE EP should be published on vinyl / Yage's Pygmy actually is the best medication for my own spiritual health / the ACV mini packs 1 & 2 are just for the courageous adventurers in....the darkside....literally, had to convince myself that i was not dreaming with the TV on last night....that's ultrapsychelic vista beyond control i was talking in a previous post...TRIP! Wtf The Bubble Heads are...forever AGAIN & AGAIN! Ok, calming down now :D

The Yage EP reminds me a lot of Blackhill Transmitter actually... drums, guitar, the atmosphere, overt krautrock influence.

ACV 2.7 is an odd one, six previously released tracks and one from 5.6 as well... will have to have a deeper listen, but the unreleased material is good, especially the acoustic opener. ACV 5.6 is excellent, on first listen it might be my favourite of the three.

Humanoid is interesting, almost entirely scrapping the acid and going full on IDM this time around. Will need some more listens to get my head around this one.

So far I've heard ...

A Controlled Vista (the Touched by Silence mix)
A Controlled Vista 2.7 - Currently my favorite out of the three mixes, but this will keep changing as they are all excellent.
A Controlled Vista 5.6
Yage - Pygmy EP - Wow, very surprised by this. It sounds to me like a hybrid between Blackhill Transmitter and bits of new Amorphous Androgynous. Top production! AP.BAC, Recause, and Pygmy are stunning :o

Tonight I will dive into the Humanoid - KAAGE EP !!!

Cool, I just picked up FLAC Environments 5 and 6.5. Ive got Blackhill Transmitter now in the cart and need a suggestion as to what should join it for the 4th FSOL purchase of the day!

If you don't have it already, Archived 9 is a recent highlight.
