Found a 2nd hand CD of Budd/ Guthrie - After The Night Falls in my local record shop. Now I have to confess that piano type ambient is not my favourite, I have to be in the mood for it, I own plenty Budd btw (and enjoy it when I play same occasionally) This album is excellent though, been on constant rotation, probably a bit less piano orientated though.

Phobos - An October Evening Very deep and dark , as ever. Great stuff and a track with some beats  ;) surprising but excellent !! Looking forward to watching the DVD .

Ecovillage - Jesus of Nazereth on psychonavigation bandcamp. What a beautiful, ethereal , uplifting listen. CD ordered. Good for Christmas Ambient Listening.

No probs Drone On.

Appreciate many FAXmen will have these. I don't so am very interested.

This is also very interesting, from CDS Dundee website......


Landing late April/Early to Mid-May this ‘Dark Side Of The Moog: Volumes 9-11’ Boxed Set contains 5 Discs (3 Original Albums, a Schulze & Namlook - ‘Live In Hamburg’ CD and a Bonus DVD-Audio Disc of ‘DSOTM-11’ in DTS 5.1 Surround Sound) in Jewel Cases all packaged in a Presentation Card Box with a Pull-Off Lid and features New Artwork and Liner Notes.

With regard to the mastering of the ‘DSOTM’ albums – it is exactly the same as the original FAX mastering - by Pete Namlook himself – as the label felt it couldn't be done any better.

The Bonus Disc in this Box is: ‘Live In Hamburg’, which is Previously Unreleased in this unedited form, but: edited by Pete Namlook this concert formed part of: ‘Dark Side Of The Moog - Volume 8’
Label advisor and "Schulze" specialist Ecki Stieg thought it could be a great bonus for the fans to release the concert from Hamburg in its original form (incl. the audience, which was deleted in the ‘Volume 8’ version.

The 5th disc in this set is the DTS 5.1 Audio of ‘DSOTM-11’ and it was mixed and mastered by Pete Namlook.

So now you can preserve your original collector's items and listen to these new reissues instead, plus there’s that 5.1 DVD-A and CD of Bonus ‘Live’ Material to savour as well!

The Angling Loser - Author of the Twilight This really is one of my favourite ambient albums.

Igneous Flame - Opaline . Wonderful , that track Lilac Haze gets me every time. Stunning.

Two absolutely beautiful albums that are a privilege to listen to.

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.
