Vir Unis & Saul Stokes--Thermal Transfer.  A Hypnos classic.  Hypnotic grooves meet ethereal drift.

Solar Fields--Altered.  This is probably my fave Solar Fields CD.  He remixed his album Movements by taking out the bombastic drums so it's all space drift, but still in the psy chill style.  If you like thick, fat droney bass , this will give your subwoofers a real workout.

Loads of that Suso Saiz style Hypnotics guitar all over Ancestor Circle, just amazing sounds on this!

Roach/Reyes--Ancestor Circle. This hasn't left my car CD player all week.  Take a trip back to 1993 circa Origins and Forgotten Gods, and a mind trip through time and space.  Exquisite!  Review to come hopefully soon from yours truly...

Carbon Based Lifeforms--Twenty three.  2011 Ultimae release.  Some cbl fans complained there were "no rhythms.". Well it's a droning deep space ambient release so that's why.  As the cover image suggests, music to scan the skies and marvel at the  wonder of the universe.  Love it.

Ethernet--Tanuki Dreams.  This artist's previous CD was released on Kranky (which I really must search out now).  Tanuki was recently released on the excellent Gterma label in Sweden.  This album is a heady brew of deep ambient, ambient dub, with more emphasis on the ambient.  A track like "North Temple" could have fit nicely on Tetsu Inoue's Ambiant Otaku (I consider this a huge compliment).  There's even some droney Grassow type atmospheres here.  I like how the album doesn't align itself with one genre and travels wherever it wants to go.  Really nice album and highly recommended.

Shriekback--Jam Science 2CD.  Funky,surreal art rock.  Great and.  This preceded their well known Oil and Gold album, and never before released on CD until now.  It was remastered from vinyl and self released.  Second disc of live show  from 1984.

Did you get this on CD and where did you get it?

Oh I see, thought it had disappeared. Thanks.

U2--Songs of Innocence.  Much better than No Line on the Horizon.  Some really good tracks on this.  I am torn, as bono alluded to once, whether the band should keep going or call it a day.  This is no Boy or October, but  still worth checking out.

Yesterday someone posted in this thread a nasty message against Tomas Weiss about making money off dead people.   I hope they are kicked off this forum.  In the meantime, can you please reinstate the thread, because I keep up with the label this way.  Thanks.

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.
