Projekt has reissued the first Solitaire album. Altered States, digitally.  Highly recommend this one from the early 90s.  Also there's a new Numina CD on Spotted Peccary, a collaboration with Zero Ohms.  Surprised this was never mentioned here, unless I missed it...

Thanks for this.  Love bks!  About four latest Manikin discs I still need to buy.  They are on bandcamp now.

The Outfield--Play Deep.  This is a power pop gem from 1995.  Great songs and production.  Commercial and radio friendly but still an edge to it.  Great stuff.  Sorry no ambient today!

I bought that Purl disc immediately upon announcing it.  350 copies sold out within a couple days...

My favorite Fax would be:

Shades of Orion 2 & 3
2350 Broadway 1, 2 & 3
Outland 2
Dreamfish 2
Psychonavigation 2, 3 & 5
Organic Cloud

Inland was such a disappointment from Tetsu.  By far my least favorite of his Fax releases.  Same with 2350 Broadway 4.  What a weak end to a previously flawless series.  But what do I know.  I'm just an ambient redneck.

Expo 70--Corridors to Infinity/Star Coloured Clouds 2CD.  Great release of cosmic guitar and analog synth in vein of early TD (especially Zeit) and early Ashra/Gottsching.  Turn on the lava lamp and space out, dude.

The sticky labels were always the culprit.  I burned backups of my Oophoi/Umbra collection and happy to say I didn't lose a one by doing this.  In fact Gigi sold me a massive (12 disc) Klaus Wiese singing bowls set via Discogs and he was not putting labels on anymore for this reason.  I'm confident they will have a long life.   

I just listened to this on bandcamp and I don't understand what all the negative comments are about.  Sounds pretty f****** awesome to me.  My order is being placed SOON!!

Alpha Wave Movement-- Earthen.  Really nice release on Anodize.  Very mellow ambient in Roach Structures from Silence style.

Regarding Steve Roach, I'm still stuck on 1993/94.  Has there ever been a better tribal ambient album than Origins, or followup Artifacts???  The sounds on these masterpieces are just SICK!!!!

Shriekback--Without Real String or Fish.  Probably the best thing they've done since Sacred City back in 1992.  They don't have a label, everything now is self released and sold through their website.  One of the most innovative rock bands ever.

Martin Gore--MG.  Great disc.  If you like modular synths you will find a lot to enjoy here.  Nice to see him getting back into the electronics after the recent awful depeche mode offerings.

Rapoon--What do you Suppose? (The Alien Question) 2CD reissue.  The original album is in my top three Rapoon albums, so if you don't have it, definitely buy this.  A 2nd disc of new mixes of original tapes and unreleased material from those sessions is here, and is simply awesome.

Aun--Fiat Lux.  New on the Cyclic Law label, this is another great cosmic space ambient release on this dark ambient label.  A lot of CL releases I ignore because they're of the noisy oppressive variety, but this disc is highly atmospheric, mostly serene and quite different in a good way from their first CL release.  Lots of heavily treated guitars and synths.  Actually a very beautiful album.  This goes on my best of 2015 list so far.

Brian Eno--Neroli.  Sleep music at its best.

Subradial--Ice Diving.  Pretty disappointing Hypnos CD.  This seems like a collection of soundscapes rather than a cohesive album.  Despite the great cover photo, it's hard to visualize images from the music for some reason.  Maybe after a few more listens it'll register.  Could be a grower...

Is there such thing as an "avoider" personality?  This woman has done this type of thing.  Acts Luke nothing happened and ignores/does not acknowledge things said or done.

Everything and Nothing / April Fools Day ignored and denied???

Today I pranked a woman at work who I'm friends with both in and outside the office.  The joke was I put a mini post it under her mouse.  It covers the sensor and the pointer on the computer screen won't work as a result.  I wrote April Fools on the note and my name.  I did this last year to two coworkers and they thought it was funny.  I didn't hear from the woman all day and finally went to see her.  I asked if she got my joke and she said no.  The post it had also been taped securely so it wouldn't fall off.  I picked up her mouse and it wasn't there.  She acted like she knew nothing about it.  It could only be removed if someone turned it over and pulled off the tape.

Does this sound "normal" where someone would not acknowledge a little prank and when questioned, totally deny it?  I cannot think of any reason, especially since we are friends.

The best thing I've heard so far this year, ambient wise, is Enceladus by Sphare Secs.  Stunning deep outer space stuff.  As good if not better than their Tiefschlaf CD.  On Malignant Records.
