- LESSONS, a two-CD set with 25 new tracks, is out in a few days.
Manchester leftfield label Front And Follow is celebrating ten years in operation with a two-CD, 25-track compilation called LESSONS.
The compilation is also Front And Follow's 50th release, and it brings together unreleased material from both longtime affiliates and newer contributors to the label. Pye Corner Audio, West Norwood Cassette Library, Leyland Kirby, Ekoplekz, TVO, Laura Cannell and Elite Barbarian are among those appearing on the tracklist, along with Kemper Norton—his track, titled "Stannum," "takes ten samples from ten tracks by ten artists from ten F&F releases across the ten years of the label to create a new piece," as Front And Follow puts it.
The two-CD version of LESSONS will come in a gatefold sleeve with inserts offering "new written work by F&F comrades." It'll also be available on digital formats.
Listen to "Stannum" (and download it for free) ahead of the compilation's release this Friday.
