Ordered. Looking forward to the Phobos music and visuals  8)

Haha , I don't mind the occasional storm sound  ;) however I am really not keen on aforementioned ambient dog whistle ! And I know exactly what you mean by this as I have also noticed this on some recent, and not so recent, releases. I find it highly irritating and a complete disappointment. To such end that if I detect it on samples, streams etc the music will not be purchased .

I will have to check out the bandcamp streams of these two first before committing, the great thing about bandcamp !!

Just listened to Ishq - Bloom on Spotify . Excellent. Warm and relaxing on this dark, wet, stormy night here.

Now playing - Ishq , Omni vu deity - Nuiemiu Rift.

I am trying to remember about this , in fact away to put it in my diary for listening to the Internet stream.

Also looking forward to hearing your new work.

Listened on the bandcamp stream last night.

Excellent ambience. On the list !!

Divine Matrix - Atmospheric Variations - superb Berlin Scool type melodic ambient. Really is a class album.

Picture Palace Music - Curriculum Vitae . Thorsten Quaeschning from TD. Great tunes.

Robert Rich - Live Archive , volume 1 - wonderful.

I love Spotify. It has masses of music from from my genres, including loads of ambient and electronica. I use it like I would Bandcamp, to check artists and music out first. I have bought loads of stuff both physical and download as a result of listening first on Spotify.

Bandcamp is utterly superb and is another place I go to to first to check out music, purchase downloads and I emphasise CDs  I also use the app to stream my purchases frequently. What a superb concept, really is the way forward. Would love to see all the FAX catalogue on there but that will never happen.

I have purchased many iTunes downloads over the years , in fact loads, however this declined massively when I started having extensive problems with incorrect album art showing constantly on all my apple devices. This seems to have improved recently with new iOS updates so that is good. Not sure if I will try the new Apple streaming service or not yet. I am happy with the options I am using at present.

I have also just bought a new streaming hifi . Denon CEOL mini all in one unit as a secondary system for the other room.  Superb sound and I am actually streaming more than listening to CDs at the moment which is really quite a change for me.

Your last release was excellent Cloud Hunter, as is this one. Like the concept also.

 Will download tonight. Cheers.

Joerg Schaaf - Sonar Experience . This is very good indeed. A mixture of styles ranging through Berlin to ambient and experimental.  Geat stuff. Think I might email him and tell him how much I am enjoying his music ........

Southfacing - Make Way For The Young deep ambient and very good it is too......

And importantly Lorenzo Montana - Black Ivy / Serpe double disc set from Psychonavigation. The first is beat orintated melodic ambient with great tunes the second deep space ambient with some beautiful melodic content also. Also on bandcamp for ordering the discs/download if you are interested .

Edit .... Both of these were on FAX originally, my iTunes downloads have about worn out so nice shiny CDs it is.

Just checked this out. Interesting stuff . Dark, disturbing, alien like ambiences. Challenging and atmospheric.

I like it.

I actually had been thinking about doing it as a 2 disc set, cdr and dvd-r, the cdr would contain the music and encore, the dvdr would be the backdrop video images only, and the music, so no disrespect taken my friend ;)

That would be a great combo release.....I hope you do. Im in.

Great idea. Look forward to that and will check out the youtube clip urgently.

It's 3 years since Pete Namlook passed on . Can't believe that. Really miss him and his new musical creations. Wonder what direction and journeys his music would have taken. Been listening to a lot of FAX this week.

62 eulengasse
2350 Broadway
Faxology - Mick Chillage

Currently the final FAX release and masterpiece that is.....

Autumn Of Communion.

Steve Roach - Sigh Of Ages

This is on free download, or small contribution, from the Projekt bandcamp site this weekend. Just started listening to track 1 . Beautiful, haunting, melancholy. Thanks Projekt and Steve Roach.

That first track on Holographic Codex is utterly superb. It really is something special. I really enjoy the rest of the album also but no doubting it is in a different vein and more Alio Die influenced. Great album though.

I still have all my cassettes I bought as a teenager. About 200 hundred or so. Some really superb albums. Still play them occasionally and enjoy doing so. Have purchased a few both new and second hand over the last few years.

Sound quality on some is really quite amazingly good.

The very first album I purchased as an 11 year old was a Wings - Venus and Mars cassette. I wanted to get Band on the Run but wasn't allowed to as it had prisoners on the front cover.  Still have the  40 year old tape and it plays well. Quite surprising longevity.

Listened to your bandcamp stream at various times during my disjointed busy day today and enjoyed what I heard. Relaxing now giving it a proper listen. Not so sure about the Kranky artist reference as this is very good indeed, congrats.

I can sympathise and correlate with the album concept ;)

I still buy a lot of vinyl, mostly second hand,  including 7" singles. Have a great collection now of Prog, electronic, rock and also music from my childhood/teenage years on 45rpm.

Also buy a fair few new pressings. Not a cheap interest though. Got the latest Riverside album 22 which seems to be about the going rate. Seen some of the Neil Young re pressings at 40-50 quid which is ridiculous.  Having said that managed to get Tangerine Dream - Ricochet , brand new, 180 gr, from a city high street record store for 6 last week. Absolutely superb, utter class album btw .

The album artwork etc on LPs is wonderful and there is something very special about listening to great music on vinyl.

Sorry to here about your dog Maxa. It's the worst thing about having pets, losing them. We all still think about "Brodie" here every day and speak about his adventures . That's about a year now without our auld friendly dug.

That is a nice looking bit of Sony kit there. I fancy something like this myself. Might provide me with some inspiration to get making some ambient music myself. I have drifted away from recording and playing. Need to get the interest back. Interesting to read about Taylor Deupree using an iPhone for recordings. Might try that first.
