Aglaia - Hymns
This is a pretty cool release, but out of sync with the typical Aglaia vibe. Throughout each track there is a highly processed voice submerged in the mix. I can't understand what it is saying (if it is saying anything in particular), but it has a spooky, robotic quality to it. That voice, combined with the more typical Aglaia synth work, gives this album a really unique sound--something that is both alien and yet strangely familiar. I imagine this is what hymns may sound like if they were performed by humanoid insects on another planet.

Oophoi and Tau Ceti - Subterranea
One of my favorite CDs, period.

Steve Roach - The Dream Circle
Castleview made me do it. Another favorite.

Art and Literature, Movies and TV / Oblivion - 2013
« on: January 11, 2014, 11:35:14 AM »
Has anyone seen Oblivion? My wife and I watched it last night and I thought it was an incredible piece of sci-fi. The visuals were wonderful, the story was excellent, and the way the story unfolds is really clever. It didn't get great ratings, but it seemed like something that a few Hypnos folks might appreciate.

It's up on Bandcamp already. Listened to one of the tracks on it and it's great. Might buy it too.

Gulp. Grant me the power to resist the temptation to buy the digital version before the physical CD arrives!

I'm fired up for the new Alio Die release. Listening today to a number of vocal-infused Alio Die albums, such as Apsaras, Eleusian Lullaby, Mei-Jyu, and Aura Seminalis.

offthesky vs Kinder Scout - The Curio Collection
No clue how to describe this. Experimental ambient soundscapes based mostly on field recordings, cello, violin, guitar, banjo, vibes, mellotron, flute, and sparse vocals. Fun listening. From Home Normal, 2012.

Tobias Hellkvist - Everything is Connected (Home Normal 2012)
Beautiful, rich, and sophisticated drone work from Sweden. This works really well with headphones. There is an excellent 4/4 track thrown into the mix that fades in and out in a seamless way.

They are both great tracks.

Spheruleus - Voyage

Excellent electro-acoustic ambient that serves as a soundtrack of sorts for a doomed nautical voyage.

NP Moss Garden -  In the Silence of the Subconscious, just ordered from Carpe Sonum and listening to the download..........FANTASTIC  8)

I'm streaming this now and like it. The sixth track is virtually identical to "The Sunken Land" from Norris's Datura Notes release as The Ashes of Piemonte, however. Weird.

I've been hunting down samples from various "favorites of 2013" lists and discovering lots of neat things. I appreciate everyone taking the time to highlight some of their favorites from the year!

On the topic of el culto news: I am eagerly awaiting my copy of the new Tomas Weiss release!!  :)

I use iTunes on my PC.

That's remarkable. After reading your post, I did a similar search and found a ton of releases under their own names. These guys don't rest! I had no clue that they were so active.

Thanks for the head's up!

I didn't buy a lot of "normal" music either, thridsystem. My favorite non-ambient release of 2013 was, without a doubt, Vampire Weekend 's Modern Vampires of the City.
