Krystian Shek - al​-​Qāhirah
This is a really interesting release on Carpe Sonum: Some familiar synth work combined with the ney--a flute-like instrument. The title track is a stunner.

PS there are three A Winged Victory For The Sullen albums on vinyl for sale in my local record shop. Very, very tempting indeed.

Do it!!!!

Ishq - Sen
New release on ...txt. Ishq has been a bit hit-or-miss for me recently. It seems that some of the releases haven't been curated or filtered well. But this album is a gem if you have been longing for the more melodic, drifting, and yet mysterious side of Ishq. Absolutely fantastic from beginning to end.

Steve Brand and Ishq - Spiritual Science
This is a reissue on ...txt; I hadn't heard the original. I like this a lot, but it sounds a bit flat in parts, as if some of the sounds are copies of copies from an old tape reel era. Nonetheless, it is a great sonic journey, and the last track/CD is lovely.

Snufmumriko - This Tide Will Bring You Home
Great EP on the Dewtone label from one of my favorite recently discovered artists. Lo-fi drones, rooted in a beatless dub space.

Max Corbacho - Source of Present
Similar in spirit to some of his other recent releases. Excellent and majestic ambience. The first track, in particular, is one I like to put on repeat and listen to in a sustained way.

Yoyu - Open Heart Communication
Serene and meditative ambient.
https://nomorewords.bandcamp.com/album/open-heart-communication

Ghost and Tape - Var
Dusty, lo-fi guitar loops, in a 12k style.
https://homenormal.bandcamp.com/album/v-r

Andrew Heath - Soundings
Field recordings and various instrumentation. Awesome with headphones.

Nunc Stans - Edge of Visibility
Fun stuff from APK. Somewhat dark, and a bit more drone-based than some of his other work. I like it a lot.
https://dataobscura.bandcamp.com/album/edge-of-visibility

Motionfield - The Passage
A collection of slow-moving ambient pieces with surprisingly few beats/pulses for this artist. I actually like this better than some of his other work.
https://motionfield.bandcamp.com/album/the-passage

Archives Various Artists - Soundscapes Volume 2

New compilation from the Archives label, featuring some of the recent artists featured on the label and some new up-and-coming ones. More guitar-heavy than previous releases, and a few really lovely stand outs (including the opening track by Steve Pacheco)

Given this a listen on Bandcamp right now. Thanks for the great tip!

Art and Literature, Movies and TV / Re: Blade Runner Sequel
« on: October 23, 2017, 04:38:34 PM »
I was blown away by it. I was expecting to have all the trappings of a Hollywood sequel. But everything about this was fantastic (no spoilers): The non-rushed pace, the visuals, the atmospheric music, the technology, and the story.

As far as recent sci-fi films go, I think Arrival takes the lead. But BR 2049 was excellent.

Andrew Heath and Anne Chris Baker - Lichtzin
Amazing collaboration full of brooding atmospheres, lost sounds, objects hidden behind corners, and beautiful ambient guitar soundscapes. A true journey!

Still on an Echospace kick this week:

Intrusion - Amongst the Stars
Deep ambient dub with a nice mix of tracks with pulses and those that simply drift.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/amongst-the-stars

Variant - [shadowbands] aphelion​/​perihelion
Deep space. The second track in particular is beautiful, drifting ambience.

Great news! And you really meant "wine" and not "wind", right?  ;D

I've recently been on an Echospace [Detroit] kick. I've always appreciated the music of Modell, Hitchell, and their friends, but I've found myself deeply absorbed in these three beatless, abstract ambient spaces this week:

Shorelights - Summer Cottage Soundscapes
Subtle glitches, field recordings (Mantra), and electronics. A beautiful, deep coma of sound.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/summer-cottage-soundscapes-2

Echospace plays Michael Mantra - Sea Shell City
Excellent recycling of Mantra source material. Slow and atmospheric. This would have been one of my favorites of 2016 if I had heard it then rather than hearing it recently.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/sea-shell-city

A601-2 - Shibuya Hynagogia
A single longform piece that works well at low volumes. Urban field recordings + electronics.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/shibuya-hypnagogia

Just out of curiosity: What do you those of you with lots of gear and studio equipment do when you know there is a significant storm approaching?

I also see Julio Di Benedetto hasn't posted since June. I hope he's okay. I know he lives in Florida, but I'm not sure how far south. Julio, I hope you'll be able to check in at some point. Hurricane Irma looks terrifying.

Marcus Fischer - Loss
New from 12k. Beautiful slo-mo, low-fi tape loops and atmospheres.

Max Corbacho - Arte Magenetica
Digital only/name-your-price on Bandcamp. Great stuff--with some experimental twists that depart from the style he's been cultivating in recent years.
