Memorabilica – The Found Sound Orchestra

The world of plunderphonics became a little brighter when The Found Sound Orchestra stepped into the void left by The Avalanches’ missing second album. Strictly under the radar, this album of bootleg cut’n’paste tracks introduced The FSO and their sunny sound which layers samples from your parents’ vinyl collection, particularly the ones they’d rather you didn’t listen to. Soul, funk and old arcade video games are thrown into the Magimix with public information announcements and children’s records. The result is sublime and often completely daft, in the great Oz tradition of sampledelica. Lost for a while, but re-uploaded with permission from the mysterious muses themselves, this is Memorabilica…

The Sound of Summer

Absolutely gorgeous slinky psychedelic cover version from Yuna, with a sound that Lana Del Ray aimed for and missed. The original version was a laid back track from The Brothers Johnson in 1971, and you can guess what a Strawberry Letter is.

Christmas Midgets by The Found Sound Orchestra


It’s that time of year again! This is the perfect Xmas party playlist, featuring Nat King Cole, Julie London and Burt Bacharach as you’ve never heard them before. Possibly the most politically incorrect holiday music ever made, uploaded with full permission from The Found Sound Orchestra.
