I'm streaming this now and like it. The sixth track is virtually identical to "The Sunken Land" from Norris's Datura Notes release as The Ashes of Piemonte, however. Weird.

Really ? Never noticed that, will check, both are excellent albums.

Currently streaming and checking out........ Celer | Climbing Formation, very nice ambient indeed.

Just checked these two tracks ............................great stuff to chill to  8)


4) The Sunken Land 19.55m
6) Daily Catachresis 4.46m

It's like track 6) is an extension of the sunken land but in a different key with subtle differences in the melodic structure. Also has different background sounds going on. Interesting comparison though and can definitely see where you are coming from there.

Interesting  ;) :D

They are both great tracks.

Spheruleus - Voyage

Excellent electro-acoustic ambient that serves as a soundtrack of sorts for a doomed nautical voyage.

Buy/Listen: https://spheruleus.bandcamp.com/album/voyage

Tobias Hellkvist - Everything is Connected (Home Normal 2012)
Beautiful, rich, and sophisticated drone work from Sweden. This works really well with headphones. There is an excellent 4/4 track thrown into the mix that fades in and out in a seamless way.

Checked that out. Nice album, like the concept also.

Currently playing;

The Angling Loser - Silent Authors Of Texture, remixes of the Author Of the Twighlight album, by assorted colleagues of Lee Anthony Norris. Like a completely different album altogether. Equally magnificent !! I really like this music  ;) 8)

offthesky vs Kinder Scout - The Curio Collection
No clue how to describe this. Experimental ambient soundscapes based mostly on field recordings, cello, violin, guitar, banjo, vibes, mellotron, flute, and sparse vocals. Fun listening. From Home Normal, 2012.

Listen/Buy: http://noise.offthesky.com/album/the-curio-collection

I'm fired up for the new Alio Die release. Listening today to a number of vocal-infused Alio Die albums, such as Apsaras, Eleusian Lullaby, Mei-Jyu, and Aura Seminalis.

Just noticed the Ishqmatics - Spacebound album is now on bandcamp. I missed out on the CD so downloaded and third listen now.

Absolutely superb space ambient music. Straight into my best of 2013 albums at about number 4  ;) 8)

Give it a listen, it's worth it  :)

It's up on Bandcamp already. Listened to one of the tracks on it and it's great. Might buy it too.

Gulp. Grant me the power to resist the temptation to buy the digital version before the physical CD arrives!

I have not really checked out Alio Die properly, which is surprising tbh.

Is this the new album ?;

http://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/amidst-the-circling-spires

Not really keen on vocals usually on ambient pieces but have to say this is very, very good indeed.

I wonder how many albums he has planned for this year. He only had one album come out last year, but he had 4 in 2012.

Wow, that really DOES sound good! I loved Apsaras, I may have to buy this one as well.
