This is a reintepretation of the two first tracks from III and they are completely different. The focus goes more on the rythmic section, which changes the entire perspective while keeping the spirit. I think it constitutes a nice addition to III
Favorite track: Electric.
It should come as no surprise to fans of the Chilean trio Föllakzoid that upon meeting the legendary Jason Pierce a.k.a. J. Spaceman (Spacemen 3, Spiritualized), they discovered they were kindred spirits. Föllakzoid and Spaceman’s projects share a restless drive to explore the outer limits of music, as well as an uncanny ability to lock into a groove until it infiltrates the deepest recesses of the listener’s psyche. When Föllakzoid met Spaceman backstage at a Wooden Shjips gig at London’s Electric Ballroom several years ago, they instantly became friends.
For London Sessions, the Chileans and Spaceman joined forces for new live renditions of “Electric” and “Earth,” two highlights from Föllakzoid’s III. The recordings were made in a private studio in London while Föllakzoid was on tour in Europe in June 2016, and Spaceman’s contributions breathe new life into the songs.
“Jason added a very different harmonic atmosphere to the songs,” guitarist Domingo Garcia-Huidobro explained. “It somehow rearticulated the space and metric that already existed in a way the band never could. These new versions have a different edge.”

Another very accessible and beautiful piece of work by Kikagaku Moyo. Some haunting psych-tunes with a more or less folky edge dominate on this album. Very hard to choose a favourite. Papa Jay (Radio Smorgasbord)

I am a big fan of music with psychedelic tendencies as long as melodies and harmonies are not completely buried under tons of distorted guitars and weird noises.
This album nails it for me. Very easy to listen to and a good balance between mystical psych-soundscapes, acid-folk and slow hypnotic grooves. Papa Jay (Radio Smorgasbord)

Simply one of my favorite albums in contemporary music. Every single track sets a different mood, and they're all quite dreamy. If you can, I highly recommend seeing these guys live as well. It's quite the experience. jaylecavalier
