Yikes!  I haven't posted about any new mixes in this thread for a long time.  I've uploaded a bunch of mixes since the last post in this thread & they are all available at Low Light Mixes.

This is the latest mix, "Sci Fi Adventures Vol. 1 - All These Worlds."  The whole mix is about a science fiction feel, whether it's music used in sci-fi or just tunes that sound like they should be in a sci-fi film.

I picked up the Wouter Veldhuis release on Bandcamp.  Really nice recording, nothing groundbreaking, just good ambient. 

I also have Wouter Veldhuis - Satumaa, a 2008 release, which also very nice.

m83 - hurry up, we're dreaming
Cyber Zen Sound Engine - Cooperation
wouter veldhuis - blue forest

non ambient:
Mother Falcon - Alhambra - for fans of Beirut, Sufjan Stevens & Efterklang.
Kacey Musgraves - same trailer different park - now this is what country music should be, not that Band Perry shit!  Classic country sound with good lyrics.
Phox - Confetti - a Wisconsin band that got a lot of pub at SXSW.  Good indie, folk-pop with a nice quiet/loud dynamic.

So cool that you discovered Somni451.  I have pretty much all of Somni451's output & enjoy all of it.  I think my three favorites are Spectrum, Cloud Atlas and Probes & Prisms.  But they are all good.

It looks like the Four Peaks disc on Time Released Sound is available as a standard disc for $15.  Not as cool as the deluxe but better than nothing.

While searching for that Four Peaks disc before posting this I ran across a compilation on Bandcamp that has a Somni track on it...
And it's free!!

Thanks for the heads up on this.  Excellent track. :)

Phil Manzanera - Diamond Head - prog rock goodness from the 70s!
the Soil & the Sun - What Wonder is this Universe! - Discovered this through NPR's SXSW coverage.  They are an eclectic mix of orchestral sounds and rock.  They describe their sound as "experimental, spiritual folk / new Mexican space music."
Junip - Fields - Junip has a new record coming out soon, the first single is great, so I pulled out their first album for a quick refresher.  Good stuff.
Hakobune - A Distant Loss - I like most of Haobune's stuff & this is no exception.  Good straight forward ambient.

FaltyDL - Hardcourage -  very nice electronica/dance/idm, whatever it's called, it's good music.
Richard Chartier & William Basinski - Aurora Liminalis - new release on the Line label.  I love William Basinski but this one does nothing for me.  I'm glad I listened on Spotify first.
Bjork - Bastards - very good album of remixes of her Biophilia material.
Atoms For Peace - AMOK  - Thom Yorke project of glitchy, stuttering electronic tunes.  Still digesting this one, so far it all sounds a bit the same after a while.

I love Ender's Game.  I think they are just finishing up the movie version, with Harrison Ford as Colonel Graf.

I think I read the first three books in the series and all are worthwhile, just not as special as Ender's Game.

I just recently read Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore as well & loved it.  And I have The Postmortal in my Kindle queue.  I think I found both books through Boingboing.  Is that where you found them as well?  I've discovered a lot excellent books through the good folks at Boingboing.

I'm about to start 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson.

For me Lux is just okay. 

Anthony, I like your description of it sounding "algorithmic ... and a little mechanical."  It sounds too much like some of his other installation pieces.  I already have 4 or 5 of those recordings and this just didn't do much for me.

Scott, I agree that the special edition version of Drums is definitely better.  And also agree that the poetry is cool at the right time & place.

krill.minima - Sekundenschlaf - Martin Juhls hasn't released a krill.minima album in a while so this was a welcome surprise.  Good scratchy, dubby electronics.
Philémon Chante - Les Sessions Cubaines - Found this on Bandcamp, very nice acoustic jazz sung in French, recorded in Cuba.
Matt Chamberlain- Viktor Krauss- and Dan Phelps - MODULAR  -  Another Bandcamp disovery.  Good post-rock.
Blaudzun - Heavy Flowers - Good indie rock - like a combo of Beirut, Frightened Rabbit and The Lumineers.  God stuff.

As a listener I use the free version and I use it mainly at work.  Aside from the issues surrounding royalties I like using it for discovering new music.  I subscribe to playlists maintained by friends and I like to see what new stuff they are adding.

I like discovering playlists posted in articles & blogs as way to find music as well.  I remember the New York Times msuic writers writing about the CMJ music festival last year.  Both writers talked about bands that they really liked and then posted Spotify links.  All I had to do was click the link to listen to all the music they referred to in the article.  A great way to supplement the article and to discover music I may never have found.

Here's a couple of links to some of my own playlists...

Best albums of 2012:

Fav Songs of 2012:

Fav ambient of 2012:

The last link for best 2012 ambient is missing more than half of my year end list simply because Spotify doesn't have all of the oddball music we all listen to.

I have Water Music II.  I'm listening right now & had forgotten how nice it is.  It's very repetitive, like all of his stuff, very soothing.
