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.

New album, Desolation, available now.

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

I love Apsaras too.

Autumn of Communion - Reservoir of Video Souls
The next album from Lee and Nick, despite the fact that every album up to this point since the 5th AoC release has been the "last one." Glad they can't resist collaborating; this is great stuff.

ILUITEQ - Soundtracks for Winter Departures
Really well-crafted cinematic ambient music on ...txt.

Great choices  ;). That AOC is one of their best. Originally just bought the download as trying to reduce the physical products at the moment ( Storage overload ) Had to get the CD also though, just too good. Nice and unusual artwork/packaging.

The Winterhouse - Unlit Passages. This has been on constant play the past few weeks. Stunning album. Haunting, dark, disturbing but beautiful. And fittingly gorgeous album cover to suit the whole concept. One of the best releases of the entire year for me.

Also been playing the new album from Mr Roach - Mercurius. I like it a lot.

Convextion - 2845

Literally just discovered this album tonight and really love it. Obviously more "beat-based" electro-ambient type stuff but has a really interesting early 90's sort of vibe a la B12, Aphex, later Cabaret Voiltaire, and the like. If anybody has any more information on him, please do let me know.

I just discovered last week some amazing drone work by Mnemonic45. I've been listening to some of these tracks on repeat this week:

https://mnemonic45.bandcamp.com/album/close-to-heart
https://mnemonic45.bandcamp.com/album/paprat
https://mnemonic45.bandcamp.com/album/adis

Very minimal. And very hypnotic.

Yes, me too! It is perfect for sleeping.

Speaking of which: The new Jaja has been on my sleeping rotation for the last two nights. Nice, peaceful, and soothing.
https://jajaouterspace.bandcamp.com/album/falling-through-space

Also, I'm really digging the new digital-only Steve Roach on Bandcamp. Although I appreciate some of the sequence-heavy releases that are getting Grammy nominations (kudos!), I have to confess that it is his long-form, drifting work that really moves me. This one is amazing.
