  1. Although people point to this and say, “FSOL before they became weird” you can still hear their ambition here. It’s more danceable and accessible, which makes it a great gateway to this great group but you can hear FSOL’s love of weird sounds and atmospherics here.

    ‘Expander” is beautiful.
