The Future Sound of London - Lifeforms (1994)

A double album from the electronic experimentation
band, The Future Sound of London.

This is full of epic, ambient soundscapes that flow
from song to song with phrases that repeat throughout.

Unlike The Orb, percussion and drums do not dictate
the rhythm or tempo of the tracks (unlike their next record
- Dead Cities), instead pacing is achieved by sound effects,
gentle drones, snippets of speech, rainfall and wind to give
a organic feel.

Mix in trip-hop, ambient dub and an almost dreamy psychedelic
feel - this is music to bliss out to.


  1. I've always had a soft spot for the future sound of london since I first heard papua new guinea as a youth

  2. That's the 1st one I heard as well. Don't play them a lot but when I am in the mood, verg good shit.
