Heezen - Abandoned Memory
Got a tip on this from Jason of Infraction on the firstname.lastname@example.org
listserv. Super cool stuff--reminds me a bit of Andrew Thomas's work on Kompakt. Lots of crackling, tape hiss, and finely sliced samples that are arranged in beautiful, atmospheric ways.

I think Drone On
nailed this with his summary of the disc. This album strikes me as one of the "must owns" of 2015, and I'm worried that it might fly too far under the radar. If you haven't ordered this, please do so. Each track is special and represents an extraordinary blend of drone, composition, and organic ambiance. The best part: The artists have the balls to include a track titled Only Rain
that is, yup, almost 6 minutes of a rain storm. And it fits so well.
