Jonn Serrie - The Sentinel

Had this disc for 3 weeks and it has been on constantly. Absolutely stunning space ambient. Beautiful, drifting, always interesting. This will be my release of 2017 I just cannot see it being bettered. One of my alll time favourite ambient releases, it is actually a masterpiece.

3 Seconds Of Air - The Flight of Song

I've been having this on CD for at least a few years. Definitely a classic ambient guitar album. I like it more than most of the guitar albums Dirk Serries did after this. The Bandcamp version has a couple of extra tracks that I don't have on my copy:

Robert Rich and Markus Reuter - Lift a Feather to the Flood
This is reminiscent of Rich's last album, with a focus on piano and dark atmospheres. Reuter brings a novel angle to the work, with highly processed touch guitar. In fact, it is so highly processed, that I wouldn't have pegged it as such if I didn't know better. This is a real headphone treat.

Yoyu - Ordinary Moon
Subtle melodies draped over field recordings and soft ambient textures. Mysterious and awe-inspiring. One of the best ambient releases of 2017 thus far. I can't get enough of it.

Seren Fford - Aurora and Ydd Hwnt y Seren a Llygedin Deep and sonorous slow pulses of sound & and the vast spaces in between.

Duff Egan - The Future of Man & Lost Land(thanks, Duff!)

I need to rewind the weekend and start over so I have enough time to fully enjoy all this.
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.

"Eight Gestures for Eight Virtuals" by Reflectives

Each composition in this album has a dedicated gesture that gets
revealed by an ensemble of eight virtual sounding objects. Unwittingly,
while they perform their duty the bigger picture is drawn.

Gas - Narkopop
New Voigt release under the Gas moniker. Picks up where the project left off, making it seem familiar but not redundant.
https://kompakt-gas.bandcamp.com/album/narkopop

Ishq - Archetypes of Light Vols. 1 and 2
Highly experimental. Not terribly interesting though, although parts of it are cool.

I've been listening to the new Northumbria this morning. Deeply beautiful soundscapes made with just guitar and bass (and some field recordings).

Leandro Fresco & Rafael Anton Irisarri - La Equidistancia
Lovely ambient-electronic release from ASIP. Cinematic in parts, but mostly slow-moving ambient works with lots of nifty details.

The digipaks were printed by Discromatics
http://www.dischromatics.co.uk/cd-and-dvd-packaging/4-page-cd-and-dvd-digipaks/
They were able to do just the packaging as I duplicate my own discs.
The photos were taken by my wife  ;).
