Otavan Veret-s/t.  Recent release on Cyclic Law.  Another slice of gloomy thick and atmospheric dark ambient from Cyclic Law.  I'd describe this as cosmic ritual space ambient.  Very nice album.

Duff Egan - Elephant Head

https://duffegan.bandcamp.com/album/elephant-head

Duff Egan used to be Earth Orbit Audio System but now he's under a new alias and this is a brilliant return. I think it's the best thing he's ever done. It feels more organic than his previous work and his production skills have improved overall.

I haven't quite finished listening yet but it's awesome so far.

Wil Bolton - Bokeh
New release on Home Normal. Field recordings, guitar, and electronics, layered over sketchy drones. Pretty nice.
Buy/Listen: https://homenormal.bandcamp.com/album/bokeh

The Ashes of Piemonte - Datura Notes
One of my favorite releases from 2013, featuring Wil Bolton and Lee Anthony Norris. Guess I was on a Wil Bolton kick today!

ELP--Brain Salad Surgery deluxe.  Great album.  Greg Lake, what a voice!

King Crimson--In the Wake of Poseidon. 

Urenga--Mu, the Lost Continent.  Ambient dub techno on the excellent gterma label.  Great stuff, even better than After Rain, his first one. 

Robert Plant--Pictures at Eleven.  Sublime first solo album.  Guitarist Robbie Blunt gives Jimmy Page a run for his money.  Phil Collins on drums.  An absolutely perfect band and great songwriting.  After the equally great Principle of Moments, he went downhill.

Maeror Tri - The A.V.E. - Tapes/Live In Nevers

https://zhelezobeton.bandcamp.com/album/the-a-v-e-tapes-live-in-nevers

I didn't know this existed until recently. Cool stuff. I like ambient industrial music.

Carbon Based Lifeforms-23.I knew about the label,Ultimae, and thought is was downtempo trance.But this CBL is all ambient,no beats and well recorded.Gentle melodies in there mixed with field recordings.BC
Pink Floyd-Dark Side 2 Disc version-Do we need another remaster of Dark Side,no.But the second disc is why I bought this.It is great.Most songs are longer,some double the length.Well recorded for a rough live mix.CD
Opening-Collection 1-5 tracks from Databloem/APK.The original VA compilation of this series and still the best.CD

Seeing the Seren Ffordd thread tipped me off to explore the massive Umbra catalog again, so recently, all by Seren:

The Quiet Labyrinth
Realms beyond the stars and light
The Portals Dreaming
Aurora
A Melancholy Light

Special music, special label...

Great to be reminded of this one. The very first Databloem release 12 years ago, when Dennis Knopper and I started the label, later adding Dataobscura, and years later going our own ways ... Dennis (in Holland) turning Databloem into the excellent general electro-ambient store that we know today.
This album is unfortunately no longer available:
