One odd thing I noticed about Prismatic is it's being sold as a double album at Amazon, but a single album at Bandcamp.  The second half at Amazon is all remixes.

Are the remixes by the original artist or other artists? Maybe that is available as a separate album at BC?

Prismatic with the remixes is at the record label's BC site.  Most of the remixes are beat oriented.

5 at BC or $17.98 at Amazon.

Several good lo-fi examples at Audio Gourmet.  Most of them are name your price or less than 4.

The new Halftribe falls into this category.  It even says lo-fidelity in the title.

It's a good recording, so I'll call it hi-fidelity lo-fi.  Soft noise and ambient synths.  Not much crunchy sounds or clicks.

Agree. Already one of my favorites of the year--and it is only February!

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Rapoon yet.

I think the issue with Rapoon is that people are quick to put them in the "ethno-ambient" category. Same thing with Dead Voices on Air.

Dunno if anyone in this thread is into Hands To/Jeph Jerman, but that stuff is pretty lo-fi. It doesn't fit Tardigrade's definition though.

I reviewed this on my blog. It's a very good album.
