Mick Chillage - Epinaz
I'm absolutely in love with this new release. Slow moving, with quirky melodies and sequences. I always enjoy his work, but occasionally--this being one such time--he absolutely blows me away.

Listening to Mick’s Epinaz right now. Really is something special. And has to be said the Neotantra label is right up my street. Every release so far is excellent. Consistent, high quality ambience of the highest order.

PS Cell in Ibiza is a superb album. I live in hope for another Cell release.

Here are a few things I've been listening to lately that I've really enjoyed:

Andrew Heath & Anne Chris Bakker | a gift for the Ephemerist
Field recordings, guitar, and melancholy piano notes.
https://rustedtonerecordings.bandcamp.com/album/a-gift-for-the-ephemerist

Shorelights | AI​-​16: Bioluminescence
New Astral Industries release featuring some of the slowed down, ambient atmosphere of Modell and Wasacz. The first Shorelights CD is still one of my favorite CDs of the last few years. This one is great too.
https://astralindustries.bandcamp.com/album/ai-16-bioluminescence

Anaamaly - Love Frequency
Ok, I'll admit it. I like new age music too. This long-form track is a beautiful mixture of what might be billed as new age, but drawing mostly upon techniques and atmospheres that are more common in what might awkwardly be called "the kind of ambient people on the Hypnos Forums tend to like." Check it out. It is amazing.

A piece I have listened to for years:

https://elementperspective04.bandcamp.com/track/kaiwa

It always makes me feel ... guilty.
And that is good.

We should not be complaisant.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hilyard - Somnolent
A brief, three-track release. Soft drones with some excellent melodic hooks. Lots of repeat-spins around here!

I like Pitch Black. I have three of their older albums: Electronomicon, Ape To Angel, and Rude Mechanicals.

Steve Roach' latest.
I'm very impressed with the variety and level of detail of this album. This isn't a "born from the moment" thing but an album that he has really worked on for a longer period of time.

Also listening to Trance Archaeology just now...

Agree, this is a special album from Mr Roach. Deep, immersive with fascinating themes and subtle touches also. One of his best imo. Great stuff.

A Winged Victory for the Sullen - The Undivided Five
The third full-length release by this duo. Modern classical meets electronic-driven ambient, with amazing melodies and theatrical despair. Beautiful.

Chihei Hatakeyama - Ghost Woods

Haven't kept up too much with his work lately, but I did get this album recently and it's great. Perfect for Winter.

About half way through my first listen of this immense collection of stunning ambience. This is something special from the ...txt label. So good.
