Just listened: The wind up bird - whips on Music fellowship - blending sonics that sound like a mixture between the Stars Of The Lid & 1 Mile North.
Have not heard this one...I have other things on that label...like the Ramses III and some stuff from Landing and the Surface of Eyceon....will check out!
V/A - Pop Ambient 2009 - Kompakt
(As I have mentioned....I am way behind on new stuff....I got the 12" + CD package on this one...kind of miss the jewel case though and will probably never open the 12" now that I have the CD....which then brings up the question why did I not just buy the CD? Who knows I figured it would be a good deal buying both for the price of one)
Charlemagne Palestine - Four Manifestations On Six Elements - Barooni
(This is one for the armchair and chin strokers....I am by no means academic when it comes to music...I never went to school to study music or stuff like that but music connosseurs talk about the work from La Monte Young, Charlemagne Palestine, Terry Riley, Morton Feldman, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Yoshi Wada, Elaine Radigue etc...I came to this music through the influences mentioned by Thomas Koner, Andrew Chalk, Darren Tate, Brian Eno, etc...I will be honest I don't get it....but that is not to say that I do not like some of it)
Monostation - Halftonal - Smallfish
(Nice little grey drone)
