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
https://hiemalambient.bandcamp.com/album/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.

Suso Saiz - Nothing is Objective

Didn't know about this until today but it's great stuff from a legend in the Spanish ambient scene.

I am really enjoying the Low Volume Music of Steve Roach and Dirk Serries. https://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/low-volume-music
The minimalist flow and murmurs are just right to soothe after a hectic morning... quality ambience by two masters.

Yagya - Old Dreams and Memories
Wow. Ambient dub techno combined with authentic cello and violin performances. This works much better than I would have anticipated.

Shades of Orion 3 - Namlook and Inoue For me a masterpiece, like much of their work together. One of my favourite albums of all time and all genres.

Now Robert Schroeder- Ambient Occlusion Berlin school however also much ambience.

Stay safe and healthy folks.

Spirogyra: Captains Log

A little 70's gem. I used to see them whenever I could, on the south coast.
Couldn't get this to show, but just click the link.

Yes APK, great stuff those folksters ! I would love to hear the Lyke Wake Dirge up on the windy moors (which isn't too far away from Flame Acres) when the world (hopefully !) returns to some sense of normality  :)

Inoue

I was just listening to Inland; a masterpiece of subtle ambient music. A true highlight of the entire genre.
Any news on Tetsu Inoue's mysterious disappearance?
I suppose not...  :(
