Anyone on the forums familiar with good record stores in Austin, TX? I'll be there for a few days this week. Wouldn't mind hitting something that has a good selection of ambient, new age, em, world, etc.

Got to agree on the Cell album - excellent stuff.
I just stumbled across something last week and now I'm totally forgetting what it was. Ack! I can't remember.
Johann Johannsson - Fordlandia. New discovery for me on spotify. Utterly beautiful music. In fact I am gobsmacked at the beauty of this. Hints of Baroque, beautiful haunting melodies, gorgeous.
Through a first listen I'd say the voices also remind me of what would happen if the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica were somehow reprogrammed to be peaceful and they all joined a hippy love cult- and I mean that in the best way possible.
Last night I sold about 150 cd's at Amoeba Music in SF. I got rid of a lot of rock/pop from the 80's, and also a lot of ambient. It's amazing how much ambient electronic stuff I have/had that was just gathering dust on my shelves, that is "ok" but not great or inspiring like the classics. Artists who I had an abundance of titles from I sold off most and kept the 2 or 3 very best. Trying to streamline my collection into only the very best. The only label I will not sell anything of is Fax.
