A trio of albums listened to today that I recommend
« on: July 16, 2014, 01:58:27 PM »
Anguaji - Trigger, Happy { the demos }

http://anguaji.bandcamp.com/

Read the info about the fact this is a demo.  First track is very "beaty" - the rest chill out quite a bit.  I'm loving this - 4th listen.

Pinklogik - Syn-Metry

http://pinklogik.bandcamp.com/album/syn-metry

Here's what I tweeted after my first listen this morning:  "Water color smeared textural ambient - different from her usual beaty awesomeness."

Lykanthea x Savage Sister - Sundrowned

http://lykanthea.bandcamp.com/

My first listen tweet:  "ethereal floating ambient vocal lilting clouds"

Also check out Lykanthea's first track off her debut:  Aphonia.

Since I'm in recommendation mood... check out Chicago guitarist - Cinchel

http://cinchel.bandcamp.com/

Most of his albums are guitar / effects - wonderful textural drone.  I've been a fan for a few years now.  His newest is stripped bare - acoustic plus delay - no massive drones. 

Highly recommended!

JKN - thanks for the Cinchel recommendation! Just bought 'A House Once Lived That Never Was' and I'll probably pick up more of his stuff before the night is through. This is very well done not-always-guitar-based drone/ambient music. Looks like at least two of his albums have some sort of physical option (printed magazine, cassette) if you're into objects as well as sounds. Thanks again - very much appreciated.

Great!  I'm glad Cinchel clicked with you.  He's a good egg as well as good musician.
