Nunc Stans - Edge of Visibility
Fun stuff from APK. Somewhat dark, and a bit more drone-based than some of his other work. I like it a lot.

Motionfield - The Passage
A collection of slow-moving ambient pieces with surprisingly few beats/pulses for this artist. I actually like this better than some of his other work.

Archives Various Artists - Soundscapes Volume 2

New compilation from the Archives label, featuring some of the recent artists featured on the label and some new up-and-coming ones. More guitar-heavy than previous releases, and a few really lovely stand outs (including the opening track by Steve Pacheco)

Yoyu - Open Heart Communication
Serene and meditative ambient.
https://nomorewords.bandcamp.com/album/open-heart-communication

Ghost and Tape - Var
Dusty, lo-fi guitar loops, in a 12k style.

Andrew Heath - Soundings
Field recordings and various instrumentation. Awesome with headphones.

Glad you feel that way, Chris.
Yes, it is excellent.
And surprisingly so, because he did have a lapse for a while, and this new style is a bit different
from what he was earlier so very good at ( which was more glitchy/clicky rhythmic beats sorta vaguely ambient).

Snufmumriko - This Tide Will Bring You Home
Great EP on the Dewtone label from one of my favorite recently discovered artists. Lo-fi drones, rooted in a beatless dub space.
http://dewtonerecordings.com/album/this-tide-will-bring-you-home

Max Corbacho - Source of Present
Similar in spirit to some of his other recent releases. Excellent and majestic ambience. The first track, in particular, is one I like to put on repeat and listen to in a sustained way.

Recently:

Nunc Stans - Edge of visibility
https://dataobscura.bandcamp.com/album/edge-of-visibility
Well thought out and detailled epic storytelling with musical notes.

Nunc Stans - Elementa
https://dataobscura.bandcamp.com/album/elementa
A perfect transcendence of music and elements.

Nunc Stans - Secret passages
https://dataobscura.bandcamp.com/album/secret-passages
Very melancolic with a sacral touch.

The Circular Ruins - Nightfall
https://dataobscura.bandcamp.com/album/nightfall
Reflective and nocturnal, I absolutely recommend head phones to get the full intent.

Mr. Cloudy - Shades of the deep
https://mrcloudy.bandcamp.com/album/mr-cloudy-shades-of-the-deep
Excellent and deep dub techno for listening and quiet times.

Fiction and Poetics - Solitude
https://fictionsandpoetics.bandcamp.com/album/solitude
As if you read in a book. Tranquil and touching. Do not miss the song "Trying to forget".

Wow, lots of gems, keep on enjoying all of them, Jana!!! As always, Anthony with his DataObscura delivers exquisite artistry and infinite consistency. Definitely a label to keep a deeply focused eye and ear on!!!

I am blown away with the opening epic track "The Beginning Of Remembering". Monumental grace at its most breathtaking, unfathomable, fascinating and immersing!!! This certainly must be one of the deepest compositions Max has carved since "The Ocean Inside" opus. Bravo, Maestro!!!

Richard :)

Ishq - Sen
New release on ...txt. Ishq has been a bit hit-or-miss for me recently. It seems that some of the releases haven't been curated or filtered well. But this album is a gem if you have been longing for the more melodic, drifting, and yet mysterious side of Ishq. Absolutely fantastic from beginning to end.
https://ishq.bandcamp.com/album/sen

Steve Brand and Ishq - Spiritual Science
This is a reissue on ...txt; I hadn't heard the original. I like this a lot, but it sounds a bit flat in parts, as if some of the sounds are copies of copies from an old tape reel era. Nonetheless, it is a great sonic journey, and the last track/CD is lovely.

Checking out two recent Hic Sunt Leones releases on Spotify.

Alio Die - They Grow Layers Of Life Within
Aglaia - Akupanga ( This is beautiful drifting, spacious ambience)

Two new releases out on the label also I see.

PS there are three A Winged Victory For The Sullen albums on vinyl for sale in my local record shop. Very, very tempting indeed.

Yes I have a feeling that this incident may happen imminently Chris :) , streaming on Spotify at present just to stimulate appropriate action.

Today's ambient has been;

Thom Brennan - Vibrant Water and Beyond Clouds - simply wonderful stuff

Krystian Shek - al​-​Qāhirah
This is a really interesting release on Carpe Sonum: Some familiar synth work combined with the ney--a flute-like instrument. The title track is a stunner.

NP: O÷phoi - Corridors Of Time

I love to listen through his music: one of the most special music I know...

and this piece is my absolute favorite piece by him (serene, beyond, balanced and infinite)
