Steve Roach - Stillpoint
This is my favorite kind of Roach music: Drifting minimal synth work, with a few melodic hooks to elevate the experience. A perfect ending for 2019.

I thought it was awesome of Steve Roach to re-release Ascension of Shadows as pay-what-you-want for a little while.

Innesti - Formless

Chris did a great job on this one, just like he did on his debut release. Great soundscapes.

...and the third album "Between Worlds" by Innesti released at the end of June is stunningly immersing too!!! Another must-have recording by this gifted US soundscaper!!! And btw, the fourth album is in the pipeline, it should be out very soon. Stay tuned, I am sure Chris will share it on these pages soon. Really looking forward!!!😉

Thanks for listening! And, yes, the new one will be coming out Jan 5th, 2020. I'll post something about it soon.

Now playing:
Sinius - The Poltergeist Syndrome
I saw him link to this in another part of the forums, which inspired me to give this a spin. I've been a big fan of his music since I first discovered him via a collaboration with Purl. The BC downloads are on the expensive side, so I tend to listen via Spotify.

This one is fantastic, if you're in the mood to explore some of his work: https://sinius.bandcamp.com/album/dhy-na

Steve Roach - Trancearcheology. Really 'digging' this album, much more than expected and surprisingly more than the recent drifting ambient releases.

Fabio Keiner - Morrigan's Lament - https://fabiokeiner.bandcamp.com/album/morrigans-lament
   Very interesting minimal release. I find it really nice to have in the background while I'm doing something.

World Listener - 絶妙な均衡 - Zetsumyou Na Kinkou
Most of the WL releases are field recordings. But, occasionally, something more ambient emerges in the catalog. This is a great one, and it sounds amazing with headphones.

A few days ago I discovered a new label from Macedonia.

I enjoy: https://elanvital.bandcamp.com/album/sand-the-wandering-place

These two have been playing a lot over the past few days. I love the depth and atmosphere of both of these releases.

Running quite a bit behind on newer ambient related releases, but have played the following recently, not all strictly ambient:

Circular Ruins - Clock House

Atrium Carceri/Cities Last Broadcast/God Body Disconnect - Miles to Midnight

Yoshimi - Fragile + Failed Stories

Mick Chillage - Epinaz

Hiemal - Cathedral Rocks

https://hiemalambient.bandcamp.com/album/cathedral-rocks

Hiemal is a great composer, composing melodies within the reverb and echo. I like that very much.

Slow moving synth work. Beautiful.

Thanks for the recommendation. Hiemal has a ton of music to go through so it can be a bit much to figure out where to go next when it comes to his older releases.

From his older works there is another epic one that stands out, darker mood but same tranquility.
