Celer - Tape At Two Speeds

This is now one of my favorite Celer releases. It stands out even in Celer's massive and ever-growing discography.

New album, Desolation, available now.

Some recent non-ambient:

oOoOO & Islamiq Grrrls - Faminine Mystique
Hazed out, admixture of a variety of styles, ranging from dream pop to jazz to rock. Very David Lynch-like at times.
https://oooooislamiqgrrrls.bandcamp.com/album/faminine-mystique

Ringo Deathstarr - Mauve
Best name for a band. MBV-inspired, with rich, dense layers and catchy melodies.

Saturn Form Essence - Duophonic Space

Maybe the darkest space music I've ever heard, dominated by lower frequency drones that are strangely warm at times.

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.

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.
