Been on a Klaus Wiese kick lately:

Space
Uranus
Ruh (2016 Version)
Divine Orbit

I might get Space II soon and maybe another of his older albums on CD.

No problem  :)

That previously unreleased version of Ruh is much better than the original IMO.

Marifa - Qumrah

Speaking of Klaus Wiese, this is an awesome tribute to him. One of my favorite albums of the year so far.

Max Corbacho - Arte Magenetica
Digital only/name-your-price on Bandcamp. Great stuff--with some experimental twists that depart from the style he's been cultivating in recent years.

Suso Saiz - Odisea

This is an interesting compilation from an ambient artist whose biggest claim to fame is collaborating with Steve Roach and Jorge Reyes in Suspended Memories. Quite a bit variety here. Some of this stuff hasn't aged well but quite a bit of it is superb so far.

Lustmord - Dark Matter
Very nice album!

Raison D'Etre - Metamorphyses
Love it. Maybe it's my favorite from this artist.

Jean Sibelius - Symphony No. 7
My new favorite recording of this masterpiece, paired with some nice images. Obviously it takes time to get into this music, but it's so much worth it. The ending is surely one of the most profound moments in music.

New from 12k. Beautiful slo-mo, low-fi tape loops and atmospheres.

Move D / Namlook - The Audiolounge .......... and Wired. 

I suppose fairly beat orientated, but massive ambient leanings with a bit of a jazz vibe thrown in. Love it.

I've recently been on an Echospace [Detroit] kick. I've always appreciated the music of Modell, Hitchell, and their friends, but I've found myself deeply absorbed in these three beatless, abstract ambient spaces this week:

Shorelights - Summer Cottage Soundscapes
Subtle glitches, field recordings (Mantra), and electronics. A beautiful, deep coma of sound.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/summer-cottage-soundscapes-2

Echospace plays Michael Mantra - Sea Shell City
Excellent recycling of Mantra source material. Slow and atmospheric. This would have been one of my favorites of 2016 if I had heard it then rather than hearing it recently.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/sea-shell-city

A601-2 - Shibuya Hynagogia
A single longform piece that works well at low volumes. Urban field recordings + electronics.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/shibuya-hypnagogia

Still on an Echospace kick this week:

Intrusion - Amongst the Stars
Deep ambient dub with a nice mix of tracks with pulses and those that simply drift.
https://echospacedetroit.bandcamp.com/album/amongst-the-stars

Variant - [shadowbands] aphelion​/​perihelion
Deep space. The second track in particular is beautiful, drifting ambience.

Max Corbacho - Splendid Labyrinths

Splendid indeed, I needed that. Love the first track.

Andrew Heath and Anne Chris Baker - Lichtzin
Amazing collaboration full of brooding atmospheres, lost sounds, objects hidden behind corners, and beautiful ambient guitar soundscapes. A true journey!

Blake Gibson & Robert Davies - Quiraing
Beautiful atmospheric drone ambient. Highly evocative of the beautiful landscapes that inspired the music. One of the most stunning album covers of all time. Exactly the atmospheres evoked by the Quiraing on Skye.

Next -

Northaunt - Nightpaths Impressive and wonderful dark ambient, yet again, from Northaunt.
