Experiments in Silence - Suspended Form
Treated piano sounds with a nice use of space. The original 30-min piece is by Experiments in Silence; the second remixed piece is by Ishq.

Ishq - Ecalyculata
More experimental soundscapes from Ishq. I'm tiring of these. I'm always curious to see what he's up to, but I miss some of the more structured and serene work prior to 2015 or so. This has some neat sounds, but the tracks don't seem thoughtfully curated or assembled.

Outstanding release; one of my favorites of 2017 so far.

Architects of Existence - Architects of Existence
New release from Mick Chillage and Eric "the" Taylor on Carpe Sonum. Dark and slow moving ambient soundscapes. There is a clear AoC and Fax edge to this, but, for the most part, the four movements are dominated by drifting electronics rather than spacey blips and beats. Absolutely fantastic.

Tonight is the night. Anyone else going to be eating cherry pie, sipping some damn hot coffee, and watching this piece of history?

I'm also listening to the new Max Corbacho release. It is wonderful. Isn't this the album that was supposed to be released by Hypnos?

Anthony: I checked out that Pachero release and loved it. Great find. I couldn't find anything of note about Pachero on Discogs; I haven't heard of him before.

Leandro Fresco & Rafael Anton Irisarri - La Equidistancia
Lovely ambient-electronic release from ASIP. Cinematic in parts, but mostly slow-moving ambient works with lots of nifty details.

Just streamed a few tracks of The Edge of a Fairy Tale on Bandcamp. Excellent stuff!

Gas - Narkopop
New Voigt release under the Gas moniker. Picks up where the project left off, making it seem familiar but not redundant.

Ishq - Archetypes of Light Vols. 1 and 2
Highly experimental. Not terribly interesting though, although parts of it are cool.

I'm listening to the Deru album right now. Really nice work! I appreciate the recommendation!

Yoyu - Ordinary Moon
Subtle melodies draped over field recordings and soft ambient textures. Mysterious and awe-inspiring. One of the best ambient releases of 2017 thus far. I can't get enough of it.

Robert Rich and Markus Reuter - Lift a Feather to the Flood
This is reminiscent of Rich's last album, with a focus on piano and dark atmospheres. Reuter brings a novel angle to the work, with highly processed touch guitar. In fact, it is so highly processed, that I wouldn't have pegged it as such if I didn't know better. This is a real headphone treat.

Nice write-up. How did you learn so much about the process/instrumentation for the album?

Billow Observatory - II: Plains/Patterns
A melding of shoegaze guitar styles, electronic sequences, and ambient atmospheres. This manages to sound both retro and contemporary at the same time. Excellent release.

Snufmumriko - At First Light
Fantastic lo-fi ambient, with glitchy nature sounds, processed electronics, and reflective moods. Reminds me of Porya Hatami.

Robert Farrugia - Slow Morning
Soft, mostly beatless, ambient textures from Archives. Beautiful packaging, featuring photos from losingtoday.

Eternell (Purl) - Children of Infinity
Ethereal mixture of acoustic sources, electronics, and voices. Love this.

That Poemme album is on my radar. Going to check it out on Tidal and see if it needs to go on the shopping list. What do you think of other releases on that label? They seem to have a decent following on Bandcamp.

I've streamed some of the other releases and think they're fine, but not captivating enough to buy. Let me know if you come across something on there that really strikes your fancy.
