Erik Wollo - Different Spaces

2.5 hour double album. About halfway through, sounding great so far.

John Lyell - Planetary Artifactcs . New artist for me. Listening to this on spotify right now.

Atmospheric space music with many elements. This is very, very good indeed,

Will be checking out more from Mr Lyell. http://www.johnlyell.com/

Also - No Mask Effect - Drift To You Have to say the earlier releases just didn't do it for me. This however is very good, quite original, fairly dark ambient . I like it. https://whereambientlives.bandcamp.com/releases

Re: Eno, I don't have anything after 1986. I guess I should check out some of his recent work. I've heard some good comments.

Since '86 I only have The Shutov Assembly, which I enjoy.  I did not like "The Ship" and I wasn't keen on Small Craft although need to check that again. Still need to hear Lux. New one sounds very promising from that wee snippet and I have read other positivity elsewhere.

Robert Rich + Alio Die - Fissures

Probably considered a classic by now, but I only just heard it for the first time today. Great album. Distinctly different from the solo albums I have from either artist.

Mayforest - s/t

https://mayforest.bandcamp.com/album/mayforest

Played a few tracks from this one earlier today, need to set aside time to listen more. Debut album out next month.

cvac, I love Fissures. It is one of my favorites.

Poemme - Arboretum
Light and breezy ambient with environmental samples.

That Poemme album is on my radar. Going to check it out on Tidal and see if it needs to go on the shopping list. What do you think of other releases on that label? They seem to have a decent following on Bandcamp.

I've streamed some of the other releases and think they're fine, but not captivating enough to buy. Let me know if you come across something on there that really strikes your fancy.

Probably considered a classic by now, but I only just heard it for the first time today. Great album. Distinctly different from the solo albums I have from either artist.


Great Album indeed 8)

Passing by Steve Roach - extended version of a track called (I think) The Passing Time from a compilation album years ago - loved the original and really enjoying this one

Yes, after phenomenal "Invisible" here comes another long-form monument by The Master, I can't wait for the physical copy!!! It's time to keep an eye on my mail lady...  ;)

Tangerine Dream - The Virgin Years '77-'83 5xCD boxset

https://www.discogs.com/Tangerine-Dream-The-Virgin-Years-1977-1983/release/3659996

Not my favorite era of TD, but I was surprised at how much I liked most of the music in this set. I guess this is where the classic era sort of ends for most people.

Don Slepian - Sea of Bliss

https://donslepiannumero.bandcamp.com/album/sea-of-bliss-new-music-for-digital-orchestra

Found this when searching around for old school new age ambient that I might like. I guess this is regarded as a classic in some circles but I didn't know about it until recently. IMHO this has aged remarkably well. Numero has reissued a couple other works by him through Bandcamp also.

Erik Wollo - Different Spaces

https://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/different-spaces

Had my second full listen yesterday. This album is really good. Much better than his last solo album IMHO, which I found a little slick and overproduced.

Apne Sinn - Worlds Apart EP

https://apne-sinn.bandcamp.com/album/worlds-apart-ep

Didn't grab me as much as "En Seier" on first listen, needs more listens to sink in. Would love to see a new album from this artist. I think I read something about him making contributions to some upcoming works by Steve Brand.

I am an early to mid 70s TD man, probably like most TD folk. However Force Majeure and Tangram would have to also be in my all time stunning album list.
 
Actually have every studio album and eps right up to the present day . There is still a lot of good stuff in the more recent releases like Springtime/Summer in Nagasaki and the sonic poem series, Island of the Fey for instance. Acquired the most recent ep "Particles" which is very good and has a real 70s vibe on disc 1. Also streamed their recent gig on a riverboat in Budapest . It was absolutely excellent, very hopeful for the new album which is planned.

Ethereal mixture of acoustic sources, electronics, and voices. Love this.

Rec008 - Сознательное Подсознательное

Great ambient drones with a touch of shoegazy noise.

Robert Farrugia - Slow Morning
Soft, mostly beatless, ambient textures from Archives. Beautiful packaging, featuring photos from losingtoday.
