Tales of Ephidrina is an ambient/techno album by electronica artists Amorphous Androgynous, better known as Future Sound of London (FSOL), which was released in 1993. It was created from work the pair had been working on around the same time as their ambient Lifeforms work, while still containing some of the techno feel of "Accelerator".
This collection of hypnotic tracks is actually the work of the prolific electronic mad scientists Future Sound of London. It's a wild ride, full of dense sonic tapestries and snaky dance pulses. The underlying sonic texture of the album isan aqueous one, which is set loose from the opening bleats of "Liquid Insects". With its soupy acid-stew gurgles and thunderclaps, one almost imagines the song being broadcast from the surface of Jupiter.
Other rapturous tracks include "In Mind", where an electronic melange of bleeps and tweets is grafted over the sound of an underwater heartbeat. The electronic string-led "Mountain Goat" almost sounds like something culled from the Windham Hill catalogue. "Auto Pimp" sounds very much like what its title implies, except that high-pitched synth sounds lend the track more of a trance-like bearing. Both "Swab" and "Fat Cat" will please denizens of thedance floor, with the songs' rolling beats and dense, light-saber like sweeps of sound.
