Wagner's Liebestod, the aria at the end of his opera Tristan und Isolde, has been haunting me a long time.
Horowitz recorded this piano transcription by Franz Liszt a few days before his death.

Book Of Air - vvolk

This ambient ensemble deserves more recognition. The only reason I found about them is because I stumbled upon another album of theirs called Se (in) De Bos while looking through Sub Rosa's Bandcamp page. I like this one a little bit more but Se (in) De Bos is great too.

New album, Desolation, available now.

Warmth - Parallel Remixed
A lovely collection of remixed tracks from Warmth's last album. Includes versions by Purl, The Green Kingdom, and others.
https://archivesdubmusic.bandcamp.com/album/parallel-remixed

Robert Farrugia - Adrift
The latest on ARCHIVES. I wasn't a big fan of this, although it has some nice tracks. Too musical?

i7x (Ishq) - Light and Space
New release via one of Matt's alter-egos. Very analog and very syrupy, with some fascinating aural spaces. 
https://i7xi7x.bandcamp.com/album/light-and-space

Light and Space was also released along with https://i7xi7x.bandcamp.com/album/in-memoriam, which is a compilation of sound sketches that are fun to explore, but it hasn't really pulled me in for repeated listens yet.

Forrest’s new album - The Fata Morgana Dream.

Hypnotic, drifting, atmospheric, beautiful ...... all the usual adjectives for this excellent album. And yet another stunning album cover.

Been listening to various David Helpling & Jon Jenkins tracks. Some really gorgeous music.

Yeah, Forrest's newest "The Fata Morgana Dream" CD is on heavy spin since yesterday, when my order arrived from Projekt's European webstore. Another big one from the Master, bravo, Forrest!!!

Some recent buys:

Fictions and Poetics - The Primacy of Perception
Great stuff from APK. As usual, APK has a deft hand when it comes to layering interesting textures and unique and seemingly incidental melodies. I love this best with headphones.
https://fictionsandpoetics.bandcamp.com/album/the-primacy-of-perception

ASC - The Waves
New release on Silent Season. Deep-space ambience. Outstanding.
https://shop.silentseason.com/album/the-waves

Kælan Mikla - Nótt eftir nótt
Not ambient. 1980's style goth synthpop from Iceland. I love this, and my daughter likes to listen to this loud in the car!
https://kaelanmikla.bandcamp.com/album/n-tt-eftir-n-tt

Kevan Revis - Siccare
Speaking of the 1980s: If you enjoy classic experimental music of the Nurse with Wound variety, Kevan is doing some amazing work in that genre. This is what modern experimental sounds like when it is grounded in a deep respect for the history of the genre.
