For the 100th release from the tasteful Mexican Summer, Ford and Lopatin have produced works with label friends the simmering Tamrayn and Light Asylums vocalist Shannon Funchess. This is a limited release and the collaborative nature of the recordings have produced some pretty interesting pieces, proving Ford and Lopatin to be completely prolific and more and more diverse with every project they turn their hands to. Stream the tracks below.
We are finally able to announce the support for the debut London show we are putting on for Peaking Lights at the legendary Plastic People on the 6th of December.

With DJ support from NPIP's Patten, one half of Fuck Buttons and FT Mix 0004 bro Blanck Mass and NTS head-honcho and Plastic People regular Mr Wonderful. Very last few tickets on sale here.

So here we are with the latest in our FT mix series, and we are delighted to have a a mix from Standish/Carlyon who have more then a small connection to The Devastsations and have recently supported HTRK and performed at the Liars curated festival Sonic City Festival, as we recently reported when we exclusively posted new track Critics Multiply. This mix has been crafted as if Feeding Time are the object of S/C's desire with a wonderful flow of fractured transmissions of cold war dubs, exotic pop and some straight classics. Designed for indoor listening, ideally the bedroom. Late nights are optimal but it's also quite nice with breakfast, provided you like Mika Vainio for breakfast.
Standish/Carlyon will be releasing their long player in 2012, so hold tight or news on that, and let this warm the cold dark nights.
