Just a bump up to remind everyone - this is featuring Robert Davies new album on APK's DataObscura label and Chris Russell's new album on my Relaxed Machinery album.

Also, on Sunday - the new Steve Roach on Projekt will spin... check the Drone Zone page for info.

Since I'm in recommendation mood... check out Chicago guitarist - Cinchel

Most of his albums are guitar / effects - wonderful textural drone.  I've been a fan for a few years now.  His newest is stripped bare - acoustic plus delay - no massive drones. 

Highly recommended! 

Anguaji - Trigger, Happy { the demos }

Read the info about the fact this is a demo.  First track is very "beaty" - the rest chill out quite a bit.  I'm loving this - 4th listen.

Pinklogik - Syn-Metry

Here's what I tweeted after my first listen this morning:  "Water color smeared textural ambient - different from her usual beaty awesomeness."

Lykanthea x Savage Sister - Sundrowned

My first listen tweet:  "ethereal floating ambient vocal lilting clouds"

Also check out Lykanthea's first track off her debut:  Aphonia.

I think it's sad when people leave. Forrest is a good egg.  I do find myself deterred from posting here very much - I almost always get a negative sounding post from one person in reply and it drives me nuts.  More than once I've been going to post and then decided... nah - I'll get jumped on as soon as I post. 

Everything and Nothing / Re: World Cup ?
« on: July 09, 2014, 06:43:21 AM »
I'm not a sports fan in general... I don't follow any sports until it gets to that 'holy cow - it's an artform' level of the olympics, or the stanley cup, or world cup.  ...and then it's just the highlights now and then. 

I've enjoyed the world cup highlights a lot.  Tim Howard was a monster - well an octopus at least.  Germany yesterday vs. whoever that team was... I think they snuck in and wore Brazil's jerseys.  Wow.   

I do find football to be one heck of a sport - when it's exciting - it's exciting!  And how the heck do the athletes run up and down the field non stop for literally ever...?  Baseball you get a nice rest after every pitch.  Football (american) - the game itself is what...5 minutes total?  but takes 14 hours to play.   

Anyway... hats off to the World Cup - some amazing, and very artful, athletes.

Hey - I don't often cross post over here - but I know a lot of Igneous Flame fans around...  head over to today - and click "THE DARKROOM" image at top... that will open a gallery of a ton of photos Pete has posted for us over at rM.

I think you'll enjoy them - you don't have to be a member to see them.

Everything and Nothing / Re: A viewpoint of ambient EM music

Each to their own.  We all have our passions...  thankfully the internet brought us ambient lovers from all over the world together to talk endlessly about what we're passionate about. 

I got a chance to listen to this in depth and it is freaking good.  It's jazz - but still with an ambient / atmospheric feel to it - but primarily jazz.  I recommend giving it a listen on bandcamp streaming and see if you like it.  I love live playing - and this is some really good live playing.

I'll point Ran Kirlian to this thread and see if he has any thoughts.  He did the last or close to last collab with Gigi.

Tomas - you can just call me John... no need to use my full title.  ;-)

Great to see you Matthew! Always enjoyed your music!

I find 'Lost in Translation' a very ambient  - let it wash over you type of movie.  As is, and I'm sure I'm alone in thinking this...  'Gosford Park'.  Both just kind of 'wash over me' and feel ambient.
