Great news, Loren. Finally, I have "Intangible" in my collection, since I missed the CD release.

Check it out, guys. Go spend money. $

Jaja - Music For Space Observation

I play this one almost daily. My favorite release this year, so far, and possibly Jana's best yet.

Steve Roach - The Lost Pieces

Rediscovering this one, I'd forgotten how wide-ranging this album is. I love when I "find" an album I've had for years again.

Blade Runner 2049 also on order, I got the '82 original in 4K, which looks stunning, although there are some shots that risk looking like effects shots, as the original matte paintings or miniatures are a little too revealing.

The Revenant, Man of Steel, and Mad Max: Fury Road have all looked amazing in 4K.

Looking forward to the Dark Knight trilogy tomorrow, Interstellar and Passengers.

I've only recently bought a TV capable of HD content, so I wasn't heavily invested in a Blu Ray library. In the case of 4K, it's nice not to have to decide whether a film is worth the upgrade to yet another format. I've bought Blade Runner in just about every video format since Beta.

Altus - Below The Root

A new release based on the computer game of the same name. I confess, I had to look it up.

3 listens and hearing something new each time. Well done, Mike.

The last Audio Cassette Factory  8)

Personally I won't be missing these things at all, I wish people were as keen on mini-discs instead !

Back in the '70's, I worked in a cassette/8-track duplication house. A lot of disco in the air back then. Unfortunately, I got rid of almost all my cassettes, as they were shedding oxide like crazy when I played them. But seeing this makes me want to break out my old Nakamichi deck and try a mix tape again.

I still have all my old vinyl, including a limited Beatles box set that sounded so clear that you could hear the squeak of the foot pedal on Ringo's bass drum. That's what I loved and miss about vinyl: It's physical. It's the ritual of carefully removing the record from the sleeve, placing the needle on the disc, and poring over the liner notes, lyric sheets and artwork(Dark Side of the Moon!), all the things that made records so memorable. I just recently hooked up my Denon turntable to my system. Now, I need to dig into storage and pull out that Beatles box again.  :)

deepspace - The Glittering Domain re-release on Bandcamp. Lovely, long-form washes of synth space, interspersed with unearthly guitar and some deep piano excursions.

I'm not sure how I missed this one first time around, but it's nice to see that DS's catalogue is being rolled out on BC.

Altus - Innerspace

Vast, slow-moving ambient waves for 70 minutes. Nice stuff, Mike.

That's nice to hear.  It's an excellent album.  Does this mean that Tetsu is still around?

Unlikely. It appears to just be a re-release. Tetsu's last record was "Inland" released on Fax in 2007. If there's been anything since then, I'm unaware of it.

It does seem a little quiet here, possibly a by-product of the changing nature of the industry, i.e. fewer physical releases, less resources used to publicize them. I have to admit, most of my purchases are digital these days, especially on Bandcamp(hi, Pete and Jana), with only the rare CD purchase to satisfy the compulsive completist still in me.

And, as pointed out, we've lost some amazing talents recently. I think Gigi and Pete Namlook's passing knocked a huge hole in our collective community. Most of us are O÷phoi fans to one degree or another, and the demise of Pete's Fax label has been a big loss, not only for the new releases, which almost always generated a lot of buzz, but also because there was so much crossover into different sub-genres and artists influenced by Pete, that it seemed to take on a life of its own here.

I kind of miss obsessing over their work and I'm probably not the only one.

Picked this up recently via a Facebook recommendation.  Pretty nice:

Nice find. I got it, as well. Also picked up a couple new Earth Mantra releases on Bandcamp:
And the new release from Psychonavigation on BC,

I would advise watching the first episode. It gives you a good overall feeling of the scope of the show and sets up the dynamics for most of the major characters and plot lines. I think you'll know by the end, whether you want to go on watching.

But, it really is an excellent series. Don't worry about the books. Just enjoy the show for what it is.
