Joerg Schaaf - Sonar Experience . This is very good indeed. A mixture of styles ranging through Berlin to ambient and experimental.  Geat stuff. Think I might email him and tell him how much I am enjoying his music ........

Southfacing - Make Way For The Young deep ambient and very good it is too......

And importantly Lorenzo Montana - Black Ivy / Serpe double disc set from Psychonavigation. The first is beat orintated melodic ambient with great tunes the second deep space ambient with some beautiful melodic content also. Also on bandcamp for ordering the discs/download if you are interested .

Edit .... Both of these were on FAX originally, my iTunes downloads have about worn out so nice shiny CDs it is.

Just checked this out. Interesting stuff . Dark, disturbing, alien like ambiences. Challenging and atmospheric.

I like it.

I actually had been thinking about doing it as a 2 disc set, cdr and dvd-r, the cdr would contain the music and encore, the dvdr would be the backdrop video images only, and the music, so no disrespect taken my friend ;)

That would be a great combo release.....I hope you do. Im in.

Great idea. Look forward to that and will check out the youtube clip urgently.

It's 3 years since Pete Namlook passed on . Can't believe that. Really miss him and his new musical creations. Wonder what direction and journeys his music would have taken. Been listening to a lot of FAX this week.

62 eulengasse
2350 Broadway
Faxology - Mick Chillage

Currently the final FAX release and masterpiece that is.....

Autumn Of Communion.

Steve Roach - Sigh Of Ages

This is on free download, or small contribution, from the Projekt bandcamp site this weekend. Just started listening to track 1 . Beautiful, haunting, melancholy. Thanks Projekt and Steve Roach.

That first track on Holographic Codex is utterly superb. It really is something special. I really enjoy the rest of the album also but no doubting it is in a different vein and more Alio Die influenced. Great album though.

I still have all my cassettes I bought as a teenager. About 200 hundred or so. Some really superb albums. Still play them occasionally and enjoy doing so. Have purchased a few both new and second hand over the last few years.

Sound quality on some is really quite amazingly good.

The very first album I purchased as an 11 year old was a Wings - Venus and Mars cassette. I wanted to get Band on the Run but wasn't allowed to as it had prisoners on the front cover.  Still have the  40 year old tape and it plays well. Quite surprising longevity.

Listened to your bandcamp stream at various times during my disjointed busy day today and enjoyed what I heard. Relaxing now giving it a proper listen. Not so sure about the Kranky artist reference as this is very good indeed, congrats.

I can sympathise and correlate with the album concept ;)

I still buy a lot of vinyl, mostly second hand,  including 7" singles. Have a great collection now of Prog, electronic, rock and also music from my childhood/teenage years on 45rpm.

Also buy a fair few new pressings. Not a cheap interest though. Got the latest Riverside album £22 which seems to be about the going rate. Seen some of the Neil Young re pressings at 40-50 quid which is ridiculous.  Having said that managed to get Tangerine Dream - Ricochet , brand new, 180 gr, from a city high street record store for £6 last week. Absolutely superb, utter class album btw .

The album artwork etc on LPs is wonderful and there is something very special about listening to great music on vinyl.

Sorry to here about your dog Maxa. It's the worst thing about having pets, losing them. We all still think about "Brodie" here every day and speak about his adventures . That's about a year now without our auld friendly dug.

That is a nice looking bit of Sony kit there. I fancy something like this myself. Might provide me with some inspiration to get making some ambient music myself. I have drifted away from recording and playing. Need to get the interest back. Interesting to read about Taylor Deupree using an iPhone for recordings. Might try that first.

Bought the BC download.

Track 1 "traum" starts with drone style and an eerie synth then meanders with spacey synth background, ambient but also TD 70 s style. Some nice chord progressions. Track builds nicely to about 10 minutes + when a synth bass line gradually builds. Personally not as keen when this is introduced however the track continues to build well over the 19 minutes. Track 2 Trauma is the best for me. More ambient orientated.

Overall, very good release, would prefer another 20 min track but for £4.64 ( including bandcamps UK VAT  >:( . Good value I think.

I have been looking for that Analogue Overload (Ricochet Dream edition) however it does mot seem to be available on download. Will track down the CD . Sounds like it could be a must have .

Just listening to this track.

Very good indeed. Leans more towards the ambient school than the Berlin one. Atmospheric, sometimes warm , sometimes dark. Hints of melody and subtle sequencing. Definitely have to get this album.

Nice album cover photo also.

Pete Namlook / Steve Stoll - Hemisphere, music for travel to a different Solar System

Thomas Kohner - Daikan. Some of the deepest bass I have ever heard. Really quite something.

Julio's Original Light CD is wonderful. Your excellent words Richard just make me want to listen to it urgently.

Great reviews you write. Keep up the good work man  :)

Mathew Florianz - Nocturne - Soundtrack For Science Briefings. Recommended elsewhere and I can understand why. Beautiful sounds, on bandcamp if you are interested in checking it out.

Neil Campbell - The Ancient Volcanic Centre of Scotland. Player Press Bandcamp. Had to check it out as the title is my homeland. First few minutes are experimental to say the least. Think this one will be a challenge. Interesting though ;)

S.E.T.I. The Data Logs Of Astro Myrmex on ...txt reissue. Excellent space ambient.

The Golden Cake Company - Travelesque EP. Warm, dreamy ambient with some guitar sounds and weirdness. Great stuff.

Thanks for the tip Andy. Seems a bit tricky to get any legal online downloads for True North. Just listened to The Man From Aran on YouTube and the sample at Groove. Very interesting cold dark artic sounds. Atmospheric indeed.

NP The Angling Loser - Author of the Twilight.

Following recommendation elsewhere .......

Amir Baghiri - Planet X, Live Long And Prosper, Orbital Repose.

These three are all deep spacey warm ambient and are absolutely excellent. This artist is also into tribal and more beat driven stuff apparently, which is not so much my thing these days. The above three highly recommended. Beautiful music.
