Simon Lomax - A Strange Light
Got this tip from Richard. Beautiful slow-moving ambience, mostly guitar based, as far as I can discern. If you get a chance, check out the first track in particular (Watching the Vapour Form). It is especially enchanting.

Steve Roach - Molecules of Motion
This, and other Projekt titles, are on sale today on Bandcamp, so I picked it up. I like it okay, but I'm less partial to the sequenced work that Roach releases. I much prefer the drift-based soundscapes.

Terry Riley - Moscow Conservatory Solo Piano Concert

Not ambient but awesome regardless. Terry Riley's piano work is kind of underrated.

New album, Desolation, available now.

Ataxy - When the Lightning Falls
New artist on the Archives/Faint label. Pretty good soundscapes, with deep and rich textures.
https://faintmusic.bandcamp.com/album/when-the-lightning-falls

Variant - thru the cosmos [pallas​/​perseids]
Slow-moving, spacious ambient dub from Hitchell. Mesmerizing.

Brian Eno - Thursday Afternoon

It's always nice to go back to an old classic like this one.

Waveform Transmission - V 2​.​0​-​2​.​9
A Rod Modell project that I only recently discovered. This is fantastic! Layered, textured drone spaces. No  beats, and a nice variety of frequencies.
https://astralindustries.bandcamp.com/album/ai-08-v-20-29

Deepchord - Immersions
More Modell, but with beats. Frentic beats. Kind of interesting, but maybe a bit too busy.
https://astralindustries.bandcamp.com/album/ai-10-immersions

Both releases on the very interesting Astral Industries label.

Luis Miehlich - Silences
New artist on Archives. Diverse set of ambient tracks that blend together soft electronics and field recordings.
https://archivesdubmusic.bandcamp.com/album/silences

Sonmi451 - Angel EP
A single, 17-min track featuring a slow-moving, beautiful melody with layers of additional treatments. I enjoy putting this on repeat and having it on in the background for hours.

I like it but it's the final track "Empath Current" that stands out. Wonderful piece.

Currently listening to Max Corbacho - Arte Magnetica
Again some breathtakingly gorgeous tracks in there. The 1st, 5th and 6th are just... wow.

Parallelism - Hier Matin
Loopy, grainy, and dreamy ambient on Tehnofonika. Not much in the way of melody, but full of interesting textures.
https://tehnofonika.bandcamp.com/album/parallelism-hier-matin

Some related sounds, released as a Various Artists compilation from the same label, Tehnofonika:

Robert Davies - Mercurial
More mysterious soundscapes, with interesting unsettling moments.

Indigo Egg - Aten
A recent Matt Hillier project that combines Egyptian mythology and history with ambient and techno influences. Interesting.

Variant - thru the cosmos [eta​/​aquariids]
New release from Hitchell of echospace fame. Two long-form tracks of deep space meditations. There is less groove in here than there is in some of his work, which really makes this stand out.

On Saturday I was in a Hi-Fi shop having my headphone foam earcups replaced.

I had the enormous pleasure of listening to a number of my tracks, Eivior, Steve Roach, Klaus Schulze and Vir Unis on a system costing over 40,000....

Could really swim in the sound, heard my own stuff almost as I heard it in my head when making it.

The nice thing is that the shop staff were really interested - not just in what some of the music sounded like but also ides behind what I was doing and how the sound came out of the system.

These are guys used to listening to music everyday - not things like cardboard being ripped and sonically transformed - they stood there listening intently and on occasion moving around to feel where the subwoofer was focussing the really low frequencies. Was fun to see them impressed with a 2 inch movement of the cone....

Rasa (Bill Laswell) - Serene Timeless Joy

The only album Bill Laswell released under the name Rasa but I still like it. An ethno-ambient longform piece with a few surprises here and there.

Playing a couple of pieces of music from William Basinski and Co.




This is very special....especially the last 2 tracks https://richardchartier.bandcamp.com/album/untitled-1-3






Relatively new piece....Selva Oscura, Mono No Aware is the standout track for me.  Don't see myself getting back into vinyl though.  https://williambasinski.bandcamp.com
 
P.S. Just picked up a CD from the UK off Discog
