Nemesis-Music for Earports.  Probably their most ambient release. Finland's finest. Awesome.

Apoptose-Schattenmadchen.  Strangely beautiful and unsettling, yet dreamy.  This German group gets categorized as Goth, experimental and ambient, but still hard to pigeonhole into one category. I love this disc.

A Produce-Land of a Thousand Trances Special Edition.  Makes me long for some new music from this stellar artist.

Forrest Fang-Phantoms.  Believe the hype. It's great!!!!! 

I wasn't speaking about MODERN classical, buddy.  Let's not get all nitpicky about it.  So maybe before you jump to conclusions and get all anal about it, you shouldn't type either.  Who's ignorant now?  8)

Bought this over the weekend in SF and it was by far the best of the batch of my purchases. A truly stellar release!  Easily on my Top 10 of 2009 list.  I'm still trying to figure out what that thing is on the front cover, though.  (a log, block of wood???) Another photo inside looks like a light switch but couldn't tell you what it is, either.  Guess it goes with the music--mysterious and ethereal...

I should have it by middle of the week.  I'll post my review soon. 

I like Wanderlust a lot.  Great summer driving music to crank up to eleven.  ;D

Another great relatively new one on Faria is C.J. Mind & Man UFO "Source."  Very nice cosmic ambient with tribal touches, piano n' electric guitars. Lovely stuff, and highly recommended (again). 

I thought Eno's Music for Airports was the first piece to be called ambient because he invented the term.  Never heard that about Satie.

If you wanna talk classical why don't you go to  This is an AMBIENT site, remember? Or as Electroambient Space puts it: "No new age, no techno, just Electronic Ambient Spacemusic..."  And yes you are now getting annoying (snappy smart-arse reply expected soon)...

My parents have always referred to ambient as "non music."  And they love classical, n hate ambient.  So I don't think THEY see any correlations between the two.  I don't either. Period. Over n' out!!  :-*

Hypnos News and Announcements / Upcoming Hypnos releases?

I was wondering whatever happened to the planned new release by Viridian Sun and the reissues of Jeff Pearce "Daylight Slowly" and Nebula's second album.  The only news updates I ever see are for new items in Hypnos store...

There is absolutely no relationship between classical music and ambient.  Classical music is temporal, acoustically produced, structured music.  (Good) ambient just isn't. Period.

Hats off to the Faria label for this wonderful album of Budd-like piano mixed with haunting, gently disorienting drones and electronic treatments.  ONe of my favorites of 2009 so far.  The Mac Mavis "Report from the Lake" disc is also excellent.  Some very interesting sounds here, an artist to watch who has his own style. File under: aquatic ambient.  PS: I believe he is no relation to crooner sensation Mac DAVIS.

I agree. I love RST.  How is the new stuff compared to Silent Shore and Frontier, and his Hypnos release? Where can I get these?

I have now gone over all my Backroads purchases over the last 15 years with an extensive laser carbon dating system and conclude they were all previously played before I bought them as "new."  But first I must send them to the DNA lab to confirm the results. ;-)

You're the idiot if you had to do DNA testing on discs to tell if they were used or not! In Lloyd's defense, a lot of the imports were never shrinkwrapped and when they made it to the US they weren't always perfect.  Also I have opened plenty of sealed CD's only to find the disc had a big nasty scratch on it.  It's all relative. 

Not here.

I don't even bother with pre-orders anymore.  Inevitably there's some kind of snafu.

What a shocker.  I did not even realize she was that young!  A sad loss for the ambient world and especially for her husband, my most heartfelt condolences to Will Long.
