Just noticed the Ishqmatics - Spacebound album is now on bandcamp. I missed out on the CD so downloaded and third listen now.

Absolutely superb space ambient music. Straight into my best of 2013 albums at about number 4  ;) 8)

Give it a listen, it's worth it  :)

I'm fired up for the new Alio Die release. Listening today to a number of vocal-infused Alio Die albums, such as Apsaras, Eleusian Lullaby, Mei-Jyu, and Aura Seminalis.

It's up on Bandcamp already. Listened to one of the tracks on it and it's great. Might buy it too.

Gulp. Grant me the power to resist the temptation to buy the digital version before the physical CD arrives!

I have not really checked out Alio Die properly, which is surprising tbh.

Is this the new album ?;

Not really keen on vocals usually on ambient pieces but have to say this is very, very good indeed.

I wonder how many albums he has planned for this year. He only had one album come out last year, but he had 4 in 2012.

Wow, that really DOES sound good! I loved Apsaras, I may have to buy this one as well.

This morning:

Anthony Paul Kerby & Tomas Weiss- Revelation- very nice space drift. Unlike their previous collaboration, Distant Shadows, which was fraught with restlessness and tension, this disc is a relatively peaceful and benign journey- no troublesome asteroids and comets to dodge :) The production and sound design is flawless, of course. Highly recommended to those who like the darker side of ambient.

Talkingmakesnosense- The Winter Drones- an oldie, but goodie. Forgot how nice this is... I wonder what happened to this guy- he made two really good albums, and then disappeared.

Oophoi and Tau Ceti - Subterranea
One of my favorite CDs, period.

Steve Roach - The Dream Circle
Castleview made me do it. Another favorite.

Eliane Radigue- Kailasha (Trilogie De La Mort- Disc 2)

More people should know about her. A true master of minimalism and drone music.

Thanks Castleview, I had never heard her before. Fascinating stuff. Will do some exploring.

Nachtplank - Second Sacraments Council

Really deep ambient with a hint of ancient cathedral like voices......... Perfect for reading the final few pages of the novel - Iron Winter - Stephen Baxter.

Now checking out ; Anthony Paul Kerby & Tomas Weiss - Revelation on utube and Stormloop on bandcamp. The Oophoi and Radigue also on the check out list.

Mathias Grassow--Dagaz.  Need to add this to my best of 2013 list.  One of his strongest solo releases to date. 

Ishqamatics-- Spacebound.  Great CD.  Sold out at the txt recordings label site but you can still get it from Databloem...

Aglaia - Hymns
This is a pretty cool release, but out of sync with the typical Aglaia vibe. Throughout each track there is a highly processed voice submerged in the mix. I can't understand what it is saying (if it is saying anything in particular), but it has a spooky, robotic quality to it. That voice, combined with the more typical Aglaia synth work, gives this album a really unique sound--something that is both alien and yet strangely familiar. I imagine this is what hymns may sound like if they were performed by humanoid insects on another planet.
