Oh yeah love Ramp!!!  Where's Stephen Parsick???

As someone who is a serious listener and physical product collector, it's great to have bandcamp to finally be able to listen to a whole album before buying the CD.  But it has become frustrating now that labels or artists are only putting up limited samples, probably to counteract what you're describing.  Those cheapskates who use bandcamp and YouTube as a radio and never support the music financially are ruining it for everyone!  A coworker recently proudly stated "I don't buy music.  Why, when you can just go on YouTube." Grrrrrrr.....

Yes Pete, you are right about Sylvian.  He has said the exact same thing in various interviews.  I'm not expecting a Gone to Earth 2; but some melodic songs aka "rock" are greatly missed by this fan.

Rapoon--Fall of Drums.  Superb return to form of his 90s style gems like Fallen Gods, Vernal Crossing, Kirghiz Light,  Tin of Drum, etc.  The last track is an epic 33 minutes of blissed out ethno ambience.  Been waiting a long time for this, and it definitely didn't disappoint.

The Sylvian CD is just out, apparently ambient instrumental, with poetry reading I think, but maybe not but just text accompanying the music.  Haven't heard it though but with his extreme experiments in sound these days I'm not getting my hopes up. 

Steve Roach/Jorge Reyes--Ancestor Circle.  Did this get delayed??  Not on Steve's or Projekt sites.  Highly anticipated for sure. 

What happened to Dave Fulton, Paul Ellis, and Chad Hoefler?

Vir Unis?

Hmmm, I thought the windows ceased once the switch was made from cdr to CD.

Good review, I missed out on this but did get the cdr version.  Excellent album.

In case you weren't aware, today is NATIONAL VIDNA OBMANA DAY.  In celebration at work today:  Crossing the trail, twilight of perception, subterranean collective, surreal sanctuary, contemporary nocturne.  That's a lot of fujaras!

OBMANA for president!!

Klaus Schulze, Edgar Froese...

Case in point:  Robert Fripp, Harold Budd, Jon Hassell...

He played beautifully on David Sylvian's masterpiece Gone to Earth.

I think 750 copies is a lot for this, especially at this inflated cost.  I agree, it is great stuff but I just can't justify the cost.  Mark dwane released a limited edition of 1,000 I think back in late 90s, at $25 a copy.  Took a long time for those to sell out.  In fact it may still be available.  I think an artist should set the price at whatever they see fit, but you are going to run into fans who just won't pay that much.

I agree!  Shades of Orion isn't too shabby either.

Okay okay I meant new CD, not digital!   ;)

How about as a last installment, "The Devolvement of the Human Race and it's Destruction by Greed and Technology"?

Now THAT is something I would definitely have to hear.  ;D

Exactly.  I got that information from the Projekt website.  Also, the CD is not listed for sale yet on Steve's website.

The release date for Roach/Reyes is October 28.

Thom Brennan.  Seems to have disappeared from the earth (along with Tetsu Inoue). No new album for five or so years.

Andrey Faryus (Faria Records).  I assume the label folded, but never heard anything for years.

Patrick O Hearn.  Seems ages ago there was new music.

Steve Roach.  No new album in about three months.  I'm starting to worry.   ;)

I really liked their piece on the recent Projekt compilation, so just went to Tim Story website to see if the album was available yet.  Yes, limited edition 750 copies, signed numbered.  Clicked the add to cart button and was shocked to see this CD costs $35!!!  I'm sorry, I'd pay at most $25 for something like this (even that is a little much). 

What justifies asking $35 for one 50 minute CD?  Lazy Arc is the name of the album.  If you wanna blow your whole paycheck on it, be my guest!   ;D

That bothers me as well on Bandcamp where it's not specified if it's a CD or Cdr.  Although maybe bandcamp's definition isn't particular and the two are lumped together.  Seems like the artist/seller on bandcamp could specify this for its buyers.
