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

Do it!!!!

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)

April Larson - Hopeless Variations
Beautiful drone-based ambient from an artist previously unknown to me. Excellent abstract cover art too.

Aglaia - Picture Frames
Lovely new drone release with a great span of frequencies (e.g., low guttural murmurs)
https://aliodie.bandcamp.com/album/picture-frames

Alio Die - Time Zone Portal
This is okay: Well above average for ambient music, but average for Stefano. Still worth a listen/buy.

Quiet Calling - V
Outstanding sonic journey, beginning with some attention-grabbing synth work, evolving into nicely textured drone work, and ending with a some glitchy touches.
https://el-culto.bandcamp.com/album/quiet-calling-v-full-length-tracks-complete-mixed-album-included

Jaja - Music for Space Observation
Quiet (very quiet) contemplative drones. First track is amazing.

Yep, that's really nice music, Jaja.
Dub and Detroit ... minimal techno. When done well it is excellent.  8)
