Snufmumriko - At First Light
Fantastic lo-fi ambient, with glitchy nature sounds, processed electronics, and reflective moods. Reminds me of Porya Hatami.

Robert Farrugia - Slow Morning
Soft, mostly beatless, ambient textures from Archives. Beautiful packaging, featuring photos from losingtoday.
https://archivesdubmusic.bandcamp.com/album/slow-morning

A very good album IMHO. I'll be posting a review of it soon hopefully, now that I've had enough time with it. The Archives label has been on a roll lately too.

Also:


Giles Reaves, Nothing is Lost and Sea of Glass.

I also have his collaboration CD with Jon Goin but that one has not aged well IMHO. Oddly enough the stuff I heard off Goin's solo album from around the same time sounded a lot better.

I wish Reaves' catalog was at least available digitally as it all looks to be out of print right now.

Billow Observatory - II: Plains/Patterns
A melding of shoegaze guitar styles, electronic sequences, and ambient atmospheres. This manages to sound both retro and contemporary at the same time. Excellent release.

I need to listen to this at some point. I like Auburn Lull and seeing that one of their members is behind this project got my attention pretty quickly.

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.


Great Album indeed 8)

Yeah, certainly one of my all-time fave albums!!!

Richard

Thanks for the reminder you two... I lent this album to friends some years ago and it never returned... but I know where they live.  ;D   I agree that this is an outstanding work.

Jonn Serrie - The Sentinel

Had this disc for 3 weeks and it has been on constantly. Absolutely stunning space ambient. Beautiful, drifting, always interesting. This will be my release of 2017 I just cannot see it being bettered. One of my alll time favourite ambient releases, it is actually a masterpiece.

3 Seconds Of Air - The Flight of Song

I've been having this on CD for at least a few years. Definitely a classic ambient guitar album. I like it more than most of the guitar albums Dirk Serries did after this. The Bandcamp version has a couple of extra tracks that I don't have on my copy:

Robert Rich and Markus Reuter - Lift a Feather to the Flood
This is reminiscent of Rich's last album, with a focus on piano and dark atmospheres. Reuter brings a novel angle to the work, with highly processed touch guitar. In fact, it is so highly processed, that I wouldn't have pegged it as such if I didn't know better. This is a real headphone treat.

Yoyu - Ordinary Moon
Subtle melodies draped over field recordings and soft ambient textures. Mysterious and awe-inspiring. One of the best ambient releases of 2017 thus far. I can't get enough of it.

Seren Fford - Aurora and Ydd Hwnt y Seren a Llygedin Deep and sonorous slow pulses of sound & and the vast spaces in between.

Duff Egan - The Future of Man & Lost Land(thanks, Duff!)

I need to rewind the weekend and start over so I have enough time to fully enjoy all this.
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.
