Richard Ginns - In Float
A 2014 release on Tattersall's Cotton Goods label. This is electo-acoustic ambient at it's finest. The atmosphere is a fragile one with sounds hovering, sustaining, and then vanishing. Listening to the album brings to mind the image of motes of dust floating through a sunbeam.
To tie this into the YouTube thread: This is an album that I never would have bought if the artist hadn't uploaded it to Bandcamp. The cost of buying this limited edition release, combined with the shipping from the UK, was prohibitive. I just didn't want to take a chance based on the few samples I heard on the Cotton Goods website. But after streaming the album once on Bandcamp, I found myself returning to it over and over again and finally bought the digital version as a way of showing my support.

That's a beauty! Thanks for the discovery, Chris.
