Klaus Schulze - Cyborg 1973, great album, chilly atmosphere; actually listening to bonus track "But Beautiful" from 1977; it does not fit so well to Cyborg's tracks; quite interesting recording though, typical sounds from that period;concert in Brussels; oh well, got already used to those bonus tracks on "revisited" editions  :P

Some eclectic listening this week.  Been enjoying these--

18th Dye - Amorine Queen (a new album over a decade after their last one!  Crunchy pop punk in a Wire vein)
Hem - Funnel Cloud (very pleasant Americana with a faint 70s feel to the arrangements; reminds of the Cowboy Junkies)
Francisco Lopez - Belle Confusion 969 (I've heard his releases can be a mixed bag; this one has some great ambiguous drones in Koner-ish vein that build gradually)

"Spiders, Aether and Rain (The Finest Works of Ttts)" by Trance to the Sun - Brilliant surrealist Darkwave, "August Rain" may be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard...

"The Cosmic Game" by Thievery Corporation - Wonderful sophisticate lounge-y stuff

"Nude and Rude" by Iggy Pop - Excellent music for cleaning the apartment and manic air guitar

Nice one, Anthony. The Pausal EP (without an 'l', BTW) is available for free d/l from Highpoint Lowlife here:

Good and SotL-y (pre-Tired Sounds...), like the man says.

banco de gaia - last train to lhasa

Heading back to the 90's for sample heavy trancish fun.    I tend to like a lot of his albums.

Just got the Tangerine Dream Bootleg Box Set (volume 1).  It's seven discs and it'll tide me over for a while

Steve Roach's latest work, "Landmass," just arrived in my mailbox today. I've been listening to it all afternoon here at the office, and it's a tonic I need. Really looking forward to a deeper listen later.

What do you guys think of "Landmass" so far?

Anglican: There was some talk of Landmass recently in the Non-Hypnos Artists and Labels section of the forum, in a Roach thread.
Maybe take a look in there.

Just listening to The Circular Ruins - Falling Into The Sky  :)

Sounds good as all of Anthony's work. Most ambient producers who come out with a lot of music tend to produce some that disappoint me but I'm yet to find anything from this guy that I don't love.

"Loveless" - My Bloody Valentine (They're coming to town and I'm reacquainting myself with their work...)

"My Little Fire Filled Heart" - Tara Van Flower (Always an enjoyable listen...)

"Slow Promises" - The Winterhouse (A wonderful collaboration that I've had in constant rotation since I got it...)

Sense Project - The Sublime

nice ambient guys, this is my first Hypnos purchase & what lead me to this forum. I especially like this style moody & deep with classical textures. I'm sure I can hear violin strings, piano etc. Anything else you guys would recommend in this vein?

np Isten (nice vocal drone & hints of strings)

I'm also on a 12K kick lately:

Giuseppe Ielasi "August". I guess I should really wait a month before listening to this  ;)

I thought the primary instrument was guitar on this but I'm not so sure. Lovely in any case. A double bill with Christopher Willits seems right.

Shuttle358 "Chessa"

Described by my SO as "woobly" music. "In a bad way?" "No." "Good, then I concur. And warm." Thanks to Mike for the trade!
