Boris Lelong - Incubation
This hits all the sweet spots for me. Synth-driven ambient soundscapes that create the sensation of floating on clouds. Mixed in among field recordings are sounds that feel as if they are being triggered by random events or being improvised; kind of in the way that some of James Johnson's work appears at times. Good use of high frequencies without melting my ears. Quite lovely.

Richard Ginns - Fall, Rise
Purportedly inspired by a near death experience. Acoustic and electronic, low-fi drone/ambient in the spirit of Hatami and others.

Re: txt label.  Not sure why they keep pressing so few copies when the demand is so obviously high.

I don't get it either. And I hate that feeling that I need to buy now or miss the opportunity.

Every album on the txt website is "Sold Out".   Hmmm, maybe because you only pressed 100 and they sold out in one day.  Seems like an ego thing to me  ;)

darkness within

so many noir washes

I've been enjoying the full immersion treatment with Loren Dent's Anthropology Vols. 1, 2 and 3 and his Extras from vol. 1 that we're originally available on a separate memory stick release.  Majestic symphonic drone with occasional hints of Stars of the Lid.  I've also been enjoying Stephen Parsick's clamshell version of Cambrium (Music for Protozoa)--vast dark ambient.

Late last night.........



Namlook/Hawtin - From Within. Spacey, alien ambient with beats, music from another Universe. Superb.

Kyle Bobby Dunn - Kyle Bobby Dunn and the Infinite Sadness
Excellent guitar drones: somber, deep, and beautiful. And, as usual, good titles (e.g., the "Boring Foothills of Foot Fetishville").

Led Zeppelin I-111 (reissues).  Great live disc Paris 1969 on the first one. 

The Fixx--Live 1982 King Biscuit Flower Hour.

Sonic Youth--Daydream Nation deluxe 2 CD.  IMO their best album.  An excellent live disc is included on this release.

Velvet Underground--At the End of Cole Street (2cd live 1969).

Recently setup my living room music system with a laptop and have been enjoying Pandora.  Never used the service before.  Its a communal system so ambient is not always piped in but when it is Im really enjoying a shuffle between Steve Roach and Brian Eno.  Im discovering artist I have never heard of and some I know by name but not their music.   8)

Lucette Bourdin - Radiant Stars

Never listened to any of her albums before but I'm really impressed so far.  Great textures.

R.I.P.

Porya Hatami - The Garden
A new ambient release on Dronarivm. Simple acoustic soundscapes inspired by a garden theme. Each track is named for a common garden denizen (e.g., ladybug) and I am assuming that at least some of the field recordings are magnified and processed recordings of said creatures. Really neat stuff with beautiful artwork to boot.
Buy/Listen: https://dronarivm.bandcamp.com/album/the-garden

Video for the track titled Snail:

Thanks!

Also, I have a new album that should be out by the end of the month, if not a little sooner.

Dronny Darko and SandSpace - Untitled



Excellent aquatic dark ambient music from GV Sound, which is an excellent netlabel. Their vision of the sea is a lot creepier and claustrophobic than mine was on Oceanscape, at least in the beginning. The album cover sums it up quite well.

Excellent albums, all of them high quality and very difficult to chose between. Great label Carpe Sonum. Looking forward to the Bubble, Krystian Shek, AOC4 and new Heckman releases.
