No Mask Effect - Nothing Out There
From Psychnavigation's Keith Downey. This release combines urban field recordings with lush, rich synth textures to create some deep and mysterious atmospheres. The first two No Mask Effect releases seemed interesting, but I didn't feel compelled to press the "buy" button. This one was worth it.

Robert Rich - What We Left Behind
I finally picked this up after Robert Rich opened his Bandcamp store last week. This feels like a mature release: the mood, the details, and the instrumentation all fit together nicely. Lovely artwork too.

Erik Wollo - Stars End 2015
One continuously evolving and flowing journey through space. Love it.

Steve Roach - Early Man
Vir Unis - The Drift Inside

re blood machine - A great album, especially as the sounds are very energetic but somehow stationary...

Altus - Innerspace

Vast, slow-moving ambient waves for 70 minutes. Nice stuff, Mike.

語り部 - Sketches
This has a spiritual, Alio-Die-like vibe that I really enjoy. Slow moving textures and some organic elements. Digital only.
https://ghstninja.bandcamp.com/album/sketches

Purl - Form is Emptiness
Spacious ambient with dub elements from the master. This is better than much of his celebrated work on Silent Season. Worth a listen.

A couple of nice releases I've been listening to lately:

Jaja - Milky Way
         Sparkles

Both of these releases are very meditative and calm.  Performed live.  Nice for late-night contemplation, especially Milky Way, which has long-form pieces spread over two discs.

Phobos - An October Evening

Also a live recording.  Hard to describe this one.  Moody and dark in places, bordering on dark ambient, with ebbs and flows, and occasional suggestions of melody.  Well done.

Divination - Sacrifice

https://billlaswell.bandcamp.com/album/sacrifice

It doesn't sound like the other Divination albums but Laraaji's zither blends in really well with Laswell's soundscapes.

Been listening to a bunch of older heavy metal related things I've not pulled out in awhile, along with some old punk/hardcore releases. Also trying to check out some more recent (read: anything after the late 90s) metal releases. Maybe 2 in 10 bands I check out impress me enough to put on my "to buy" list.

On the ambient front, listening to AES DANA feat. MIKTEK - Far and Off right now, and I played Steve Roach's This Place to Be last night.

Haven't heard the new Purl yet. I liked his last EP release and Stillpoint quite a bit. Sounds like he just keeps getting better.

I started logging some of the albums I'm playing on https://www.instagram.com/patient_ot/. All over the place genre-wise of course.

Johann Johannsson - Orphee
Modern classical with some excellent experimental flourishes. Some of these tracks make me melt. Beautiful.

Ishq - Fhorm
New from ...txt. This is pretty cool stuff: experimental electronics, but not too far "out there." Many of the tracks retain some structure, making the album feel like the right balance between composition and improvisation.

Listened to the reissue of Zenith (Vivanco + Inoue) twice so far, amazing album all around:

https://psychonavigation.bandcamp.com/album/zenith

Also played Biosonic again today:

And this album of instrumental hip-hop by K-Murdock (of the group Panacea, if anyone remembers them):

Biosphere - Departed Glories
Lo-fi loops and processed sounds from vocal and folk music from Eastern Europe (I think). Very moody and haunting.
https://biosphere.bandcamp.com/album/departed-glories

Carbon Based Lifeforms - World of Sleepers
Picked up the new CD pressing from Blood Music. Beautiful new artwork.
