U.K.-based electronica duo Laika has compiled album tracks, rarities, covers, live cuts, and a previously unreleased song for "Lost in Space," due Jan. 21 from Too Pure/Beggars. The album's first disc features such album favorites as "Breather," "Uneasy," and "Bedbugs," a remix of "If You Miss" for the "Macro Dub Infection Vol. 1" collection, and the hard-to-find "Lower Than Stars" from the now out-of-print "Volume/Warchild" compilation.

The second disc kicks off with the previously unreleased "Beestinger," and also includes a cover of Wire's "German Shepherds," three songs recorded for DJ John's Peel's show on the U.K.'s BBC radio, three B-sides from Laika's "Antenna" EP, and remixes by Maxwell House and Meat Beat Manifesto mainman Jack Dangers.
