King Crimson- Live at Fillmore East 1969.  Excellent recording (for an old recording) of the classic lineup featuring Greg Lake and the other guys from In the Court and Wake of Poseidon albums.  "Epitaph" is one of my all-time favorite songs.  Official bootleg on DGM. 


Epitaph is spookily appropriate today.  I heard on the BBC lunchtime news that Greg Lake died from cancer.

Leandro Fresco - El Reino Invisible
Lovely release on Kompakt by one of the recent headliners in the Pop Ambient series. Ambient loops with nice acoustic touches.

Material Object and Phonaut - Indiana Drones - the very first Carpe Sonum release.

Dogon - The Sirius Expeditions - Strange but interesting

Robert Rich - What We Left Behind and Foothills. Both on Spotify and wonderful.

Paul Schütze – New Maps of Hell (1992) Full album


Count me as a fan. He recorded several great albums in the 90s. I'm glad he also maintains a bandcamp page and makes most of these OOP recordings available. My favorite is probably still Surgery of Touch.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Suzanne Ciani: FRKWYS Vol. 13: Sunergy

Really like this modular blippy & noise goodness, with some fine Riley undertones.

Aglaia - Latitude
Lush ambient textures that shift and transform in beautiful ways. As usual, this is just the right blend of experimental and ambient.

Two from the Archives label:

Warmth - Essay
Slow moving ambience, anchored with some deep-bass melodies.
https://archivesdubmusic.bandcamp.com/album/essay

Gallery Six - Underwater Paradise
Serene, yet glitchy with its occasional water-sample overlays.

Aglaia - Latitude

Listened to this on Spotify Chris , lush and interesting ambient as you say. Thereafter embarked on an Aglaia fest - Leaves and Tunderstorms, Angelus, Ephemeral Blue (wonderful !!), Florealia Nocturnal and current play is Intangible Opacity . Great stuff.

Also discovered what I assume is another Aglaia - very laid back almost improvised jazz , very good also.
