Other Ambient (and related) Music / Jon Jenkins -- Flow
« on: June 09, 2009, 05:14:23 PM »
I came across this enjoyable disc perusing Amazon. Here's a track from it:


The album does have a gentle flow to it and sounds quite beautiful.  Kind of a brighter daytime ambient.  Maybe I would compare it to Obmana's River of Appearance in overall tone?  I haven't had it long enough to decide, but it is uplifting quite like that one.   

Anyone else ever give this, or his other work, a chance?

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Kevin Drumm - Imperial Distortion
« on: January 01, 2009, 12:14:47 PM »
I don't know if this has been discussed around here but I think Kevin Drumm's latest release would be appreciated by some people here.  After spending a lot of time with it I've concluded that it is nothing short of incredible.   

Better known in noise circles, he has put together two discs of subliminal feedback drone.  Very immersive and strange, approaching the ambient genre from a skewed perspective.  Challenging the music itself. 

here's a review of it up on mapsadaisacal

Good sites that write about ambient music are a bit hard to find...

I've always enjoyed the guys taste on this blog, Mapsadaisical

He gives some interesting reviews and has a short mp3 clip or two of the album being discussed.

This one though is very well written and enjoyable too

Point me in the right direction to acquire more along the same lines as those above, or plug your own as well if you dare

Anyone else looking forward to this one?

Just wondering if anyone else has heard this recording.  I can't vouch for his other releases but I have really been getting a lot out of this one over the last four months.

(click on the tracks that say "ensemble chord" for the sample tracks)
This is some great minimal drone, ala Deep Listening/Oliveros!
