Hiemal - Cathedral Rocks

https://hiemalambient.bandcamp.com/album/cathedral-rocks

Hiemal is a great composer, composing melodies within the reverb and echo. I like that very much.

NP: Wanderings Within Forests of Despondency

Thanks for the recommendation. Hiemal has a ton of music to go through so it can be a bit much to figure out where to go next when it comes to his older releases.

From his older works there is another epic one that stands out, darker mood but same tranquility.

Solivagant Ghost of Cimmerian Woods

I've gotten through most of it so far and it's a nice dronescape.

Sheku - Sheku Plays Elgar.
Beautifully recorded album (but then I just love cello)

Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza - Rainforest Hill (I + II)
Lo-fi ambient in the spirit of the more deliberately ambient side of the vaporwave scene. This is really delicate and drifting.

Steve Brand - Magical Thinking
Oh man, this is fantastic! Such deep sound spaces, with nice pauses, fascinating instrumentation, and a contemplative atmosphere.
