Various Artists - Collision/Detection Series (Front & Follow)
A quick mention for this release over the summer, the box set compilation of the series spread over contributions from nine different artists using a communal set of sound files. You’ll find all the detail you need on the label website or on this link. Suffice to say that it is a consistently fascinating and surprising collection and it sheds new light on the term collaboration.
Because I’m late getting around to this, it’s likely the special edition is gone by now, but here’s the blurb on that anyway. It looks and sounds like a particularly gorgeous package, which is just in keeping with Front & Follow's previous releases.
“The limited first edition of 200 comes in a letter pressed package, with a bonus download album of exclusive additional tracks, and the original sound clips used to create each EP. EPs come from Psychological Strategy Board (Jonny Mugwump and Time Attendant), West Norwood Cassette Library, The Lord, Hong Kong in the 60s, BLK TAG, Kemper Norton, The Doomed Bird of Providence, Isnaj Dui and Sone Institute.”
*By the way, in the meantime, Front & Follow have launched another impressive compilation, The Outer Church, in conjunction with the Brighton-based event of the same name. More on that soon.
