Other Ambient (and related) Music / Rapoon "Dark Rivers"
« on: June 07, 2009, 11:52:54 PM »
To those who "gave up" on Rapoon releases, this one's for you.  I decided not to order this one initially from the short sound samples I had heard, plus the last couple of releases were pretty uneven and too experimental for my taste.  Dark Rivers, however, is one to get: dark, very droney, and much more like his earlier music, but with a more hi-tech (i.e. not "lo-fi") sound.  No weird female vocals, no overuse of spoken samples.  He got it right on this one.

Tonight I picked up the new Harold Budd/Clive Wright CD, "Candylion."  Wow, this one is SO much better than "Song for Lost Blossoms"!  While Blossoms was a good release, some of the tracks were just too long and I felt it could have been a stronger album overall.  Candylion benefits from shorter pieces/more musical ideas, plus it is just stunningly gorgeous music.  This has everything I ever liked about Budd's music.  Some of his best music in years!!!

Well I ordered the new Oophoi without hesitation.  I can't imagine it'll be some kind of glitchfest like a 12k release.  I'm sure it'll have a healthy dose of majestic space drones, glitches or not.  I am super excited about this release!

If I don't get, ahem...relief, soon, I am contemplating doing this.  Besides being illegal/risky healthwise/morally wrong, is there anything good about it?

Hi Stephen,

Ceasing is a great album.  That's nice they compared it to Stalker, although I'd say Ceasing is more outer-space kind of stuff to me whereas Stalker is kind of a "haunted (terrestrial) landscape" disc.  Both are spooky, though!  ;D

You haven't listened to enough, or the right, Namlook yet.  Try 62 Eulengasse, Shades of Orion 2, or 2350 Broadway.  It's all about the detail, dude. ;D

1368
Yes but I don't hear a high level of detail in his music.

 ???

I don't know about "gear whore"--he makes his living doing electronic music, nothing wrong with keeping up with the latest gear, especially if you can afford it and it's part of your trade.  I thought the most interesting point Namlook made was about how his recordings are "experiments," and it's up to people to decide if they like it or not.  (He's often accused of releasing too much music).  Sounds like a healthy attitude to me.  He doesn't sit around and wonder if everybody will like what he's doing or try to please everyone.  Anyways, thanks for posting this, enjoyed it a great deal!  :)

Hypnos News and Announcements / Hypnos store problem
« on: May 17, 2009, 11:51:42 PM »
Anyone else having a problem ordering from Hypnos store? I keep getting "internal server error," and I've tried ordering on three different computers, with the same result.

The Alio Die/Aglaia is excellent, as is the Sleepy Town Manufacture disc (Beautumn side project).

Don't EVER call me "Boss."  These smart-ass young guys in stores always always tryin' to be cool and at the same time insulting.  I tell them I ain't your boss, dude. Next guy to call me boss will wish he never did. Word up to yo mutha!!!

I will start on my exercise program tomorrow.  Tonight, however, I will order another pizza and veg out on the couch melting my brain with Hypnos CD's, which make me not want to move except lie perfectly still and gain more weight.

Is it just me or is the state or current rock music incredibly sad??  Am I just getting old (41) and just not "hip" anymore?  I've been playing a lot of "old stuff" like early/classic Journey, Genesis, Yes, etc. and DAMN it makes you wonder where the MAGIC went in rock n'roll.  Now playing: Journey "Captured".  What a f'ng KICK ASS band they were!!!!

1376
Thanks to Mike and Lena for sending me the CHILDREN of Alcyone disc with correct title, without requesting a replacement. Nice! You are da ambient bomb...

Siouxsie and the Banshees reissues--"Hyaena," "Tinderbox," "Kiss in the Dreamhouse," and "Nocturne."  Definitely worth getting if you're a fan, they sound great w/some very good bonus tracks.

Seren, are you working on anything new these days?

1379
Chidlren of Alcyone will be the followup to Children of Alcyone, followed by Chidren of Alcapone.  ha ha

Regardless of typos, this is another great Brand disc.  Highly recommended to all space chidren and chidlren of ambient.

There's a typo on the disc label: it reads "Chidren of Alcyone."   :-[
