Andrew Heath - Flux
I'm really enjoying this one a lot. It is a bit like taking an audio tour through a curio cabinet full of unusual sounds, contemplating each one for a bit, and moving on. Great use of field recordings, simple synth pads, and piano. Quiet, subtle, and immersive.
Buy/Sample: https://andrewheath.bandcamp.com/album/flux

Wil Bolton - Inscriptions
This is one of my favorites of his recent releases. It has a bit of an older Marsen Jules vibe (looped acoustic sequences) that I really appreciate. The recording is based on processed guitar, environmental sounds, and some light glitchy dusting. On dronarivm.

Mick Chillage - Pixels III
The third in the long-form Pixels series, on Anodize. This is excellent. It is essentially four movements that are woven into one another sequentially. The second quarter is a bit on the dark side (soundtrack to a bloody awful stabbing), but the rest of it is truly outstanding.

Soundtrack to a stabbing?  Hmm okay... :o

Anyone keen on Eno's Shutov Assembly and Neroli should check out New Composers "Boring Music" on Psychonavigation label.  A more traditional ambient work than the NC and Eno "Smart" album.  Lovely stuff.

Josh Mason - Hellified Isle
An interesting release from Fet Press. A short paperback book, containing reflections on growing up near the ocean, musings on recording, and general nostalgia. The book is accompanied by a download code that contains some of Mason's trademark glitchy guitar meanderings, along with some surf-music style riffs. Really unique and interesting.

Following recommendation elsewhere .......

Amir Baghiri - Planet X, Live Long And Prosper, Orbital Repose.

These three are all deep spacey warm ambient and are absolutely excellent. This artist is also into tribal and more beat driven stuff apparently, which is not so much my thing these days. The above three highly recommended. Beautiful music.

I have a couple of his more tribal albums, still very good - mixing in ambient sounds as well as the drums etc.

I would highly recommend True North with Mathias Grassow - very cold sounding.

Thanks for the tip Andy. Seems a bit tricky to get any legal online downloads for True North. Just listened to The Man From Aran on YouTube and the sample at Groove. Very interesting cold dark artic sounds. Atmospheric indeed.

NP The Angling Loser - Author of the Twilight.

Omni vu deity - Nuiemiu Rift + Vuunayatu

Two new releases from Ishq and part of the Virtual World series.

Nuiemiu Rift is fantastic--an experimental journey to imaginary worlds, containing a nice fusion of "world music," expansive soundscapes, and mysterious atmospheres. I don't think this is for everyone, but I think it is a true jewel in the recent wave of Ishq releases. Sci-fi anthropology.

Vuunayatu is nice release too, but it hard not to compare it against the other when they are released simultaneously. This one is a bit more on the safe side. Frankly, parts of it are a bit monotonous (e.g., the first track), but the title track--along with a few others--are fantastic.

Available on digital and CD:

Mathew Florianz - Nocturne - Soundtrack For Science Briefings. Recommended elsewhere and I can understand why. Beautiful sounds, on bandcamp if you are interested in checking it out.

Neil Campbell - The Ancient Volcanic Centre of Scotland. Player Press Bandcamp. Had to check it out as the title is my homeland. First few minutes are experimental to say the least. Think this one will be a challenge. Interesting though ;)

The two Omni Vu Deity aka Ishq discs Chris just mentioned can be purchased from me for $15 each.  These are new, sealed copies I ended up with due to a shipping mixup.  I'm forwarding the funds I get back to Ishq so they don't lose out on the funds.  These are limited to 50 copies and already sold out far as I know.  Message me if interested.  Also have them up on Discogs if you'd rather go that route.

Ghost and Tape - Shift
New release from the recently resurrected Slaapwel label. Gentle, drifting guitar meanderings, with low-fi dusting. This doesn't really stand out in any special way, but it is executed well if that's your jam.

Buy/Listen: https://slaapwel.bandcamp.com/album/shift

2814 -  新しい日の誕生

I'm not sure what Vaporware is exactly, but this is one of a few exemplars from that genre that has really resonated with me, probably because it has a clear ambient component to it.
