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…
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.
This could almost be the new Avalanches single! Joyful reinvention of a disco classic from We Plants Are Happy Plants, whose previous credits include Daft Punk.
This formed the bedrock of a classic dance tune in the back of beyond (the 90s) so you might recognise this great re-edit of Idris Muhammad’s disco gem.
