Steve Roach - Atmospheric Conditions, New Life Dreaming, Body Electric w/Vir Unis FLAC
All great albums of course. Picked up during the Bandcamp sale, pretty much blew my entire music budget for a little while on a lot of Steve Roach albums. Atmospheric Conditions is my favorite of the three. New Life Dreaming is very pretty and I think it fits well as a successor album to Dreamtime Return. Body Electric borders on ambient techno, maybe quite as good as the amazing Blood Machine w/Vir Unis but still great.
Michael Hoenig - Departure from the Northern Wasteland - Google Play Stream
Still getting comfortable with the idea of streaming but it's great for checking out older titles I know nothing about. This is a really good album of sequencer electronics, adding to the "to buy list".
I'm doing the same with the bandcamp offer....
Atmospheric Conditions is great, it is in one of the areas of Steve's work not explored as much in his recent releases - a sort of foggy, cavernous organic ambience.
Body Electric was the album before Blood Machine - which was followed by Core. You may also like Light Fantastic which preceded them all and merges brighter tones of ambience with the developing polyrhythms.
I find Blood Machine has an amazing capacity to hold both stillness and rush....
Departures is an excellent album from when electronic music was getting going.
