Hi there,

Just finding my way around Hypnos here  :) Is the download shop up and running as I can't find a link or indication ? Downloads would be a good option for the likes of myself as postal costs from the US to UK really add a fair bit of additional expense.

Also can I ask what the bit rate for MP3 will be ?

I have just checked out the samples there on your weekly sale item, John Duval - Hells Canyon , very interesting. Will be keeping an eye on Hypnos label etc from now on  :)

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 have not really checked out Alio Die properly, which is surprising tbh.

Is this the new album ?;

Not really keen on vocals usually on ambient pieces but have to say this is very, very good indeed.

Just noticed the Ishqmatics - Spacebound album is now on bandcamp. I missed out on the CD so downloaded and third listen now.

Absolutely superb space ambient music. Straight into my best of 2013 albums at about number 4  ;) 8)

Give it a listen, it's worth it  :)

They are both great tracks.

Spheruleus - Voyage

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

Buy/Listen: https://spheruleus.bandcamp.com/album/voyage


Checked that out. Nice album, like the concept also.

Currently playing;

The Angling Loser - Silent Authors Of Texture, remixes of the Author Of the Twighlight album, by assorted colleagues of Lee Anthony Norris. Like a completely different album altogether. Equally magnificent !! I really like this music  ;) 8)

Just checked these two tracks ............................great stuff to chill to  8)


4) The Sunken Land 19.55m
6) Daily Catachresis 4.46m

It's like track 6) is an extension of the sunken land but in a different key with subtle differences in the melodic structure. Also has different background sounds going on. Interesting comparison though and can definitely see where you are coming from there.

Interesting  ;) :D

I have always used itunes, since I obtained my first ipod in about 2007.

Once you get used to its idiosyncracies and issues it is very good I have found. I am happy enough with the sound quality and love the compatibility with all my ipods and the itunes store.

I have very briefly tried various other mediaplayers and found them to be complete and utter pants ;) so itunes it is for me.

I have recently tended to play a lot of music direct from the PC when working, browsing etc and have found it to be so convenient. Quite a good quality set of speakers/subwoofer (Cambridge audio) helps with that enjoyment. However................. Santa brought me a new pair of Mission speaker stands and speakers which I have direct wired from my main hifi into my adjacent office/lounge/man room and so it will now be mainly CDs/vinyl/and downloads through the main hifi  8)

Still like itunes though  :D

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.

Really ? Never noticed that, will check, both are excellent albums.

Currently streaming and checking out........ Celer | Climbing Formation, very nice ambient indeed.

BOARDS OF CANADA--Tomorrow's Harvest.  Absolutely brilliant album!!!  Adding this to my list.

Bought this on vinyl with a free download. Still haven't listened to this enough to do its quality justice. It is a great chunk of BOC which has been long awaited.

Will have to wait and get "spacebound" on download as massive music spend overload has been reached............well almost  ;)

Gert Emmens and Ruud Heij - The Sculpture Garden

Material Object and Phonaut - Indiana Drones ........ the album due to be released on FAX but Pete passed on  :(. Extensive ambient soundscapes, a real grower this album.

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

Oh yeah, and I missed a very limited edition Move D album called "The Silent Orbiter" CD that was dedicated to Namlook.   LOVE David Moufang.  Damn!

Really looking forward to that one from the  ...txt label. Also on ...txt,  waiting on the new Nachtplank and LAN - Itallian Works. Missed out on Spacebound from Ishqmatics but that is due for a download release soon I believe.

Sabbath 13 is a cracker, powerful and reminiscent of the great 70s albums. My young lad saw them live in 2012. Couldn't believe he got to see one of my bands from my young unruly days  ;) Enjoy the Hollywood gig, hope Ozzy manages ok, been off the rails again apparently .

I did buy the Boards Of Canada album on vinyl. Haven't listened to it sufficiently yet but it is a good one.

Vampire Weekend is not a band I am familiar with, will check them out.

Ashtoreth's Gate-Shadow of the Bowman
The Ashes of Piedmonte-Winter's Fire.
I followed a link through Bandcamp and found this fellow, Lee Anthony Norris.Never heard of him but there are plenty of projects he is involved with.Quite beautiful some of them and well recorded.A bit Alio Die or Fax 1995.
Been in a FAX mood recently so-
2350 Broadway,Silence 3,From Within(all original CD versions)1 Year since Peter passed,what a talent.

Wow, great music in your post there jdh  8) especially the FAX !!

I have bought much of Lee Anthony Norris' work over the past year. Started with Autumn of Communion 1 on FAX and many purchases later the new Moss Garden just this week ( stunning  8))

Check out his "The Angling Loser" work, if you haven't already. One of my albums of the year.

Phobos - One Moment Live.

Spacey, dark ambient music performed live at the Awakenings gig in the UK October 2013.

Very nice indeed  8)

I have just realised that the only "normal" album I purchased that was released in 2013 was;

Black Sabbath 13 , which is very good indeed.

My listening has been increasingly dominated by electronic and especially ambient in the past 2/3 years which is quite surprising as I am a massive Prog and Rock fan.

So the above album is my list  ;) for this topic.
