Atrium Carceri - Phrenitis  excellent dark ambient goodness

Cryo Chamber Compilation album - Behind The Canvas Of Time, a nice introduction as to what the label has to offer.

Also looking forward to the new Atrium Carceri  and Sabled Sun albums due soon.

Atmospheric Conditions. Yummy.

Bubble - 01
Downloaded via Bandcamp another John Sobocan release titled 01 and released under the name Bubble. This contains several tracks that appear on the Databloem release. Overall, this is really great stuff, but it seems to be flying under the radar.

Thanks for the Expo 70 Drone on,another winner from you. Never heard of him but the art work and that album is very cool. I looked around his website,some of it is very dark and spooky but some is very light in feel. Sort of like FLying Saucer Attack or early Klaus.
Talk of Steve,I put on Slow Heat today. I read tday that it was the hottest ever on record in Death Valley.

Want to thank the posters in this "now playing" thread that actually direct link to where the music can be heard & purchased.  Makes it so easy to hear where you are at and really helps in promoting what you like.  Thanks

Bruno Sanfilippo - Urbs
M. Griffin - Fabrications


These arrived last week, thanks to the Hypnos sale. I loaded them to my iPhone and took them with me on my recent travels and enjoyed listening to them while walking around SF. Both of these albums pair surprisingly well together due, in part, to their experimental and sparse, uncluttered qualities.

This is another situation where I'm wondering why I never picked these up upon release! I guess it is the standard problem of too much music and not enough time (or money).

More Bandcamp purchases, with links...

36 - Shadow Play
infinite_coil - soar
Brian Green - Subtle Ripples
Marsen Jules Trio - Présence Acousmatique


Dave,
i find that new 36 underwhelming so far, the typical 36 atmospheres and synths are sounding very thin here... while that Marsen Jules trio is quite good, very nice soundtrack-like atmospheres and vibes, perfect mastering..

there's way too much i've been playing as of late, just a few to mention here;

mathias grassow - calibration
mathias grassow - transpersonal
(very good Grassow material, has been playing this a lot over the last week)

bvdub - wolven [reworked]
2nd disc of Ian Hawgood's Wolven 2CD, just fantastic as always! didn't read much about it but it's simply great ecstatic stuff to me..

dj sprinkles - queerifications & ruins
(nice 2CD set of remixes of rather lush deephouse.. by mr. terre thaemlitz)

chronovalve - trace of light
(nice classic vocal based ambient, the enlightning atmospheres 'really' start to thicken with the 3rd track up till the last one..)

ornah-mental - excursions
(nice output from Carsten Agthe, solid ambient with good use of vocals and grooves through out)

alio die & zeit - a circular quest
(beautiful music for early summer mornings..)

aglaia - centurion
(up there with their best imo! refined diverse, colourful and vast atmospherics)

steve roach & elmar schulte - ritual ground
(still sounds so good till today)

rapoon - cidar
rapoon - recurring (dream circle)
(dusty bleak desert atmospheres as only Rapoon does...)

and more of course :-)


anticipating;

bvdub - born in tokyo (n5md)
bvdub & loscil - erebus (glacial movements)
ASC - time heals all (silent season)
duane pitre - bridges (important)
elaine radigue - adnos 1-3 (important)
harold budd - perhaps (root strata)
mathias grassow - tara
forrest fang - wolf at the ruins/migration (projekt)
taylor deupree & sakamoto - disappearence (12k)

I listened to the samples of 36 - Shadow Play. Some of the tracks are fantastic. But some of them seem oppressive and loud to me, starting with the first track.  I might hold off on this one (and I will probably regret it later when it goes OOP).

Stray Ghost - Those Who Know Darkness See The Light
A great release on the Time Released Sound label. A blend of modern classical and experimental minimalism.
Samples on Bandcamp: http://strayghost1.bandcamp.com/

Horizontal Excursions - Symphonica Helvetica
This is a free Roger Martinez download on Bandcamp from A Strangely Isolated Place series. This is ambient music at its finest: soft chords, a slow evolution of textures and tones, and the sensation of drifting and floating.

Pleq/Spheruleus - Quietus Gradualis

Another swell release from the Time Released Sound imprint. This album contains two ~20 minute drone tracks, both of which are outstanding. There is some subtle Pleq-style glitch and crackle work in here, but the core loops are based on classical guitar and strings.

Samples here: http://pleq.bandcamp.com/album/quietus-gradualis

Robert Rich : Trances & Drones.  Hypnos   This music is new to me and most likely it is very familiar to most here so I wont go into it much other than to say what took me so long and what a pillar of ambient electronic music it is.  Kudos to Hypnos for releasing this in one of the finest packaging designs I can remember.  I sat with headphones reading the liner notes which brought me back to the days of listening to music with vinyl covers in hand.  Really insightful words from M.Griffin included in the notes.

One of the best produced tracks (arrangement, groove, used sounds, voice) i´ve heard for a long time - amazing middle break!....luckely i´m not a native english speaker so I don´t have to bother about the stupid lyrics  ;D

Yep, nice composition. The break is excellent.
The style reminded me of something ... Mono, I think.

Netherworld - Alchemy of Ice
A 2013 release from Alessandro Tedeschi of Glacial Movements. This is an incredible album; if you haven't checked it out already, I encourage you to do so. It is the kind of slow moving ambient that you might expect from Glacial Movements, but the sounds and atmosphere are truly unique. This music is subterranean, expansive, and, at times, dark. If you have some good woofers, you'll get some nice vibrations from some of the tracks. With headphones in the dark, it can be a bit unsettling.

Samples:

Also another one just released on Glacial Movements, Frozen Thoughts -Calm Before The Storm

http://glacialmovements.bandcamp.com/album/calm-before-the-storm

Listening to it and and liking the places this one goes. I'm rather partial to the cold, wind-blown vistas of the Thomas Köner school.
