AOC-Broken Apart by Sunlight on BC.5 long form tracks that I much prefer to Polydeuces.Very spacey and FAX like.Excellent.Buy do not stream.

Roger Waters-The Wall live in 2015.Great versions of the album we all know.I saw the live show in Quebec and it is well worth checking out the Blu ray.Not just for the live footage but the story Waters weaves through it.

Joy Division-Closer.Still sounds modern today due to Martin Hannett.I cannot listen to this one very often as it is very dark but a true work of art.

I am with you on this. In general I cannot listen to JD as often as I used to but still count them as one of my very favorite bands. A lot of my favorites are things that I might not necessarily listen to all the time...have to be in the right mood.

I've been listening to this all weekend too. Fantastic work! Like you said, much more spacey than Polydeuces. A bit more experimental too, which I like a lot. I'm particularly fond on the second track, KELT-4Ab.

cvac: Kevan Revis just told me that he knows you from your WI days. Crazy, small world: He and I went to high school and college together.

Speaking of which:

Kevan Revis - Sollicitudo

Experimental soundscapes with a lot of ear candy. Not necessarily ambient, but likely to appeal to those who like the Hafler Trio, Organum, NWW, and other outfits that helped define a unique form of sound sculptures in the 80s/90s.

Yes, very small world indeed.

I tend to think of ambient music as part of a continuum where all kinds of things exist, and this kind of stuff is just on another part of the same continuum as ambient. I really enjoy his album too. The vinyl LP version is very nice for those that have a turntable. I think he might still have a few copies left through his store, Boxer Records.

Murkok - Dialectic and assorted works
I decided to hunt down some material for this guy after ...txt announced they were releasing his first proper CD. This is some really cool stuff. It is mostly slow-moving ambient soundscapes, but processed in some creative ways. As a result, it seems traditional and novel at the same time. I hope his new CD will sell well. I like the way Lee is investing in artists who haven't had the opportunity to have properly pressed CDs.

Of the various albums on bandcamp, dialectic stands out:
