Chris, Thanks for the heads up on those two albums. I just downloaded them from Bandcamp. They sound wonderful, especially the Bill Seaman album.

- A Thousand Fields
- I've been waiting for this one for a long time and I'm glad to finally hear it. Excellent orchestral tinged ambience. https://infraction.bandcamp.com/album/a-thousand-fieldsThe New Honey Shade
- Ozark Dream
- At times lush, at times noisy, sometimes using synths, sometimes using found sounds or an old time guitar. An nice odd collections of tunes.https://scissortail.bandcamp.com/album/ozark-dreamPublic Service Broadcasting
- Race for Space
- My favorite album of the year so far. This tells the story of the American & Soviet space race in the 60s. It tells the story through archival news broadcasts and communications between the astronauts and master control intertwined with music that's a bit electronic, a bit prog, a bit krautrock. Maybe I love it because I'm a space nerd but this is a great album.
