Guessing given the 'Viewed from' tracknames this is Envinromentings Se7evns ?

Probably not, it's something out of the Archives / ENV series, and yet in them as well :)

As things stand at the minute, this release should blur the lines between what is a traditional "album" and what isn't (as should some future releases too, in different ways). Whilst we may never reach the point of Gaz's dreams in the '90s - of FSOL simply broadcasting new music 24/7 from their studio - this will be a step further away from the 'album every 18 months' routine that the music industry has forced upon artists.

On the other hand, releasing an album every 18 months helps maintain "quality control". So only the best tracks that fit together as a whole get released. IMHO the Environments series suffers somewhat from this. I would take a high quality album every 18 months over the quantity approach anyday.

I do hope this is something new, but I won't be surprised if it is Environment Seven.

The only Environments release that has bothered me in that regard so far is 3, which I agree is patchy.

Just to confirm: this isn't Environment Seven.

Just happy they're faster than the rate of Leftfield and Portishead albums :D

Archived 9?? Best of Environments?? Best of Electronic Brain Storms??

Isn't "Little Boats" the agency the young girl model comes from? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.

Nope!
Pretty sure this record will just help to confuse things in terms of series, album, compilation etc.

It will be very interesting if it's something all on its own i.e not part of a series (Archives, Environments) or not a compilation of already released tracks (Life in Moments, Mushroom 11). If it's a standalone FSOL album then I'm very intrigued.

It won't quite fit any of those categories, either.

will this arrive before the Amorphous album? I really hope that doesn't get delayed.

To be honest I couldn't give a banana-wotsit-shenanigan what it is compiled under/released in - when has it really affected what the tracks sound like anyway. As long as it's good, I'm up for it !

Maybe it´s "from the archived electric brain storming environments vol. 0.1 part 1, presented and mixed by the amorphous sound of yage"?
