It should come as no surprise to fans of the Chilean trio Follakzoid that upon meeting the legendary Jason Pierce a.k.a. J. Spaceman (Spacemen 3, Spiritualized), they discovered they were kindred spirits. Follakzoid 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 Follakzoid 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-to-tape renditions of "Electric" and "Earth," two highlights from Follakzoid's III. The recordings were made in a private studio in London while Follakzoid 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."
