Voice of Eye is awesome!  Heartily recommend their Volume 2 archive compilation, don't know if it's still available.  2 CD set, including a live performance. Another great one is a collaboration with Nux Vomica.

Hadn't heard the Hypnos comp Weightless, Effortless for ages.  What a great album!

Independent Music Reviews / Re: My review of "Over-soul" CDr by Steve Brand

Steve Brand is awesome!  Where can you get this disc?  I thought all the releases now were only digital.

And I had that Cell album on CD and sold it!!!  Damn do I regret that one, impossible to find on disc..not even listed on Discogs.

The Kelly David I did have, bought when it first came out around 2002.  I remember liking it, maybe have to reinvestigate...

Have you unearthed from your mountain of CD's lately something you forgot about or never gave a really good listen to?  I've been on this kick lately of primarily listening to stuff I never play, with surprising results.  So far here's what I got:

Ian Boddy--- the DiN label download series.  Man, much of this material should have been on CD and is even better than the regular releases.

Cell--Live at Kumharas 2006.  This is simply a psy trance masterpiece,from this Ultimae artist.  Can't believe I let this one gather dust for so long.

What are your dug up treasures?

Great artist, sad to hear this.  Thank you for posting the info here.

Sabled Sun--2145.  Side project of Atrium Carceri, cinematic dark ambient concept album about an astronaut who returns to Earth to find the planet in ruins.  Highly recommend headphones on this one.  2146 is the followup CD which I need now cuz this ones pretty awesome!

Circular: Radiating Perpetual Light.  Thanks Phobos for this recommendation.

Ishq: Invisible Landscape and Zennor Plane.  Both very good.

Steve Stoll: Praxis.  Very nice ambient from this famous techno producer.

Fields of the Nephilim: 5 CD box set.  One of the best goth bands ever.

Rush were an awesome band, but they should really retire because they are just embarrassing themselves with cheesy studio albums and live albums/dvds.  I think a farewell tour is in order.

All $7 each, plus applicable shipping.  PM me if interested.

Steve Roach--At the edge of everything
Steve Roach--Spiral Meditations
Mathias Grassow--Tamanoshima
Rapoon--Psi transient
Stormloop--Arctic Conditions

Eloquently stated Nels.  Thanks for the comment.  I think some famous musicians are so used to people fawning all over them that they secretly dread another over-eager gushing fan who they just won't know what to say to.  Some, as in Levin, I think put on charm in front of an audience because it's part of the show.  Put them behind a table afterwards to meet fans and all their insecurities rear their ugly head.

Guess this was announced last September.  Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto back in the band (see my other post about Stick Men).  I thought Fripp said a couple years back he was retiring from music.  Hmmmm.  Well that's what Harold Budd said too and he's still releasing music.

Saw this show last night in San Francisco.  Amazing!!!  Tony Levin is just insanely good on Chapman Stick.  Pat Mastelotto is a prog rock powerhouse on drums.  And Markus Reuter totally ripped on his Touch guitar, going from Fripp manic soloing to pastoral ambient seamlessly. 

I was very disappointed when I met Levin and Reuter post show.  They mingled with the audience and signed CD's willingly, so it seemed.  Reuter was kind of standoffish and didn't seem too impressed when I mentioned his ambient projects with Ian Boddy, Ramp, etc and his Hypnos album.  Levin stood behind a counter meeting fans and signing CD's.  He's Mr. Personality on stage but was cold as a fish, at least to me.  When I asked him to sign my Peter Gabriel Plays Live CD and told him I think it's one of the best live albums ever recorded, he said quite rudely, "I don't even know what this is.". Even though there was a photo of him on the booklet.  Then I asked how old he was when it was recorded ('83) and he asked when Plays Live was released (!?). Am I missing something here?  He seemed offended or something.  He finally said he was 35 in '83.  Hate to say it, but if you are too self important to talk to fans then why bother signing CD's.  I've also seen him state in some recent interviews that he's "not that good".  False modesty stinks. 

Matthias Grassow I believe.  The first CD was on Weird Amplexus.

Ahhhh, Elektronik II.  Think this was Peter's last really good release on fax.  Inspired music.

Yeah hard to part with but liberating too as now I don't have a mountain of stuff I'd probably hardly listen to.  I need tostop buying so much too and be more selective.

Last night I sold about 150 cd's at Amoeba Music in SF.  I got rid of a lot of rock/pop from the 80's, and also a lot of ambient.  It's amazing how much ambient electronic stuff I have/had that was just gathering dust on my shelves, that is "ok" but not great or inspiring like the classics.  Artists who I had an abundance of titles from I sold off most and kept the 2 or 3 very best.  Trying to streamline my collection into only the very best.  The only label I will not sell anything of is Fax.

Hmmmm, don't know if I'd call "Russian Spring" a FAX classic, as it's one of the more obscure projects, which didn't get a whole lot of press.  Nonetheless, it's a good album to chill out to.   8)
