Alio Die + Aglaia - Amitabha
This has some really nice tracks on it, but I didn't find it compelling enough to give it repeated listens.

Steve Brand - Near Series: Threshold
I'm obsessed with this for some reason. Long-form ambient work that captures something that reminds me of early vidnaObmana and Roach collaborations, but with its own voice and personality. Infinitely interesting.

Does the old version sound better than the new version? (I don't have either, for what it is worth. But the youtube clip sounds great.)

Araceae - Lunae Semita
On Faint. Gas-inspired ambient pop. Great stuff.

Generative ambient soundscapes with, well, recordings of rain.

I really love The Drift Inside and Aeonian Glow by Vir Unis--some of my favorite ambient from the late 1990s and early 2000s. Time to revisit these!

Recently spinning:

Robert Davies - Elemental Shimmer
I love this guy's work, but sometimes it is hard to say whether one release stands above the rest. I think this one is an exception; I have a hard time turning this one off. Beautiful textures, unusual frequencies, and a bizarre mixture of the natural and unnatural.

The Chillage Pixel series is really neat if you want to explore the more experimental drone side of his talents.

Example: https://anodizesound.bandcamp.com/album/pixels-ii

Now playing:

SVLBRD - Stratus
Amazing ambient "techno" on the Faint label--an offshoot of Archives. I put techno in quotes because the work is mostly glacial pads and expansive soundscapes. But, every once in a while, a faint pulse emerges in the background. It isn't quite a "beat," but it helps to create an aural parallax effect very effectively. The first SVLBRD release was one of my favorites a couple of years ago. This will almost certainly be a favorite of 2018.

New release from Neil Butler on ...txt. This is a great release: The perfect bridge between modern ambient and 90s/00s-style Fax ambient.

Here is a super-cool discussion on the making of "Heptapod B" from Arrival. It gives me a new appreciation of the track.

Gallery Six - Snow Light
Absolutely beautiful ambient on ARCHIVES. Subtle hints of glitch and field recordings, mixed in with drifting electronics: Some of my favorite things.
