I've been enjoying Christopher Short's latest one under the name, "Cosmicdreamscapes"--"Narration of Butterflies and a Crystalline Sky:"

https://christophergray.bandcamp.com/album/narration-of-butterflies-and-a-crystalline-sky

Also enjoying Jeff Pearce's latest one, "Follow The River Home":

https://jeffpearcemusic.bandcamp.com/album/follow-the-river-home

Very tasty processed guitar on both.

Kelly David - A Bend in the River

The song is out on Bandcamp for just 1. It is very very beautiful.

This new music has a quality to it that one might expect from 12K, but then it stops, that is something happens....melody dominates with elements of ambient for certain as well as subtle jazz and a soft pop feel to it.  The music is gentle, quite exquisite and tracks are short.  There is no chaos.  All ambience melts together with performed instruments to create a unique place to be.....12k meets ECM

NP: "Flooded" by Antendex https://tamas-olejnik.bandcamp.com/album/flooded

Find of the year for me. I rarely find music for the deep pleasure. This one I immediately knew would be one of them.



From Hungary, with deep emotions, various projects and many albums. He also makes wonderful Dub Techno.

語り部 - Halos
Digital only and "name your prince" on Bandcamp. Beautiful glacial drones and textures from a Russian artist with whom I'm unfamiliar. I think this will appeal to a lot of listeners here.

Chris, you might also like the Russian Pantheon label.  Some great floating/drone-basedambient there.  I heard about it from Richard Gurtler.  I've enjoyed these:

Furthers - Pineal Dreamer

https://pantheophania.bandcamp.com/album/pineal-dreamer

Fellirium - Mermaids

https://pantheophania.bandcamp.com/album/mermaids

Creation VI - Reminiscence

https://pantheophania.bandcamp.com/album/reminiscence

Creation VI - Myth About Flat World

Growing - The Sky's Run Into The Sea

I've heard of them for a while but I never checked out their work until now. Great album so far.

Forrest: Thanks for the tips.  I really enjoyed Fellirium - Mermaids. Two of the tracks in particular (Ghost in the Water and Dreaming Fish) are outstanding.

Yeah, ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ label is highly recommended, Tim & Aloe are doing amazing work!!! And btw, you can find my review of "Mermaids" here on Hypnos forum, just go to Independent Music Reviews.  :)

My pleasure, Chris.  Thanks to Richard, too, for uncovering these obscure ambient gems.  The packaging for many of the Pantheon releases is exceptional, too.  The "Halos" release sounds interesting.  Have bookmarked it for further investigating...:)
