jdh: I streamed AOC5 and it is fantastic
--like crazy, sell-your-soul good. I plan to order this as soon as it is listed on Databloem.
Recent listens:Spheruleus - Chronota
A new digital-only release. This is Spheruleus/Harry doing what he does best: low-fi acoustic drones. But there is something special about this one--the atmosphere and sounds all lock together perfectly. The tracks transport me to that moment in time when day is breaking, the birds are singing, and I have the house all to myself because everyone else is asleep. Damn, now I want to brew some coffee...https://spheruleus.bandcamp.com/album/chronotaPurl - Cosimo di Rondò
Digitial release on bandcamp; billed as his first release, but I'm only hearing it now. It is quite lovely. This guy has some chops.http://eternell.net/album/purl-cosimo-di-rondSteve Roach - The Magnificent Void
This album was a life-changing purchase for me in the 90s and I often return to it for inspiration (Infinite Shore
are some of my favorite tracks in the genre). But I rarely find the time to listen to it from start to finish, in one listening. I did so this past weekend and it was a religious experience. I know some people consider this album to be over-hyped; I'm not one of those people. https://heartsofspacerecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-magnificent-void
