I haven't heard this edition yet but it's actually a favorite of mine as far as Eno's stuff goes. This one and On Land are my favorites. I have an old Japanese LP and a CD from 2004.

Recently a number of Namlook related albums appeared on Bandcamp also. There is a label that has licensed some of his work. However, I would be careful about buying albums there because they have not obtained proper masters for all the albums yet.

Intergalactic Federation 1/2 CD set.

-Was very surprised to see this reissue and was lucky to grab a copy.

Amir Baghiri - Winterscape FLAC album.

-Been looking for a reasonably priced CD copy of this for awhile and no luck finding any stateside seller. Ended up buying the FLAC off the Qobuz store.

On deck:

Amir Baghiri - Bluebox Collection 4xCD set.

I have physical CDs of Psychonavigation 2 and 3, really like those.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Ampoule Records now on Bandcamp

I asked this label for a couple of years to please consider putting their backcatalogue on Bandcamp...well, now it's happened and more releases are being added all the time.

Some of you may remember the release by Pub from the late 90s/very early 2000s, "Summer" and "Do You Ever Regret Pantomime?", but there's a lot more that they've put out. This is not necessarily pure ambient music but often melodic electronics with beats. Should appeal to some folks around here.

Here is the new BC site:

I'm not affiliated with the label in any way, just a fan.

Very nice collection there. Due to the size of my CD collection and a shortage of space I can't arrange mine that way. A large chunk of my collection has been converted to Jazzloft sleeves so they look like mini-LPs and these are stored in boxes on a shelf.

RE: Hypnos on BC, there are some but these are re-released by the original artists obviously. For any defunct or dormant label that seems like the best we can hope for. If you know an artist that's not on BC email and ask them. Some artists were slow to get on the platform but have gradually made their way to have to ask or it won't get done.

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Re: Bandcamp subscriptions - thoughts ?
« on: February 17, 2020, 08:03:25 AM »
I think artists and labels should do whatever suits them. If they want to offer subscriptions, that is fine.

RE: Steve Roach, I am sure he has a very large quantity of unreleased music he's made over the years, so quality of material would not be my concern. I would not want artists to feel pressured just to make material on demand. I think they'd be better off building up an archive of material over time and then releasing as they see fit to subscribers.

I personally do not do any monthly subscriptions because I do not like recurring billing charges. I would prefer to pay up front for the releases I want, or pay a bulk fee to buy a whole catalog at a reduced price. Most often I just buy the releases I want individually.

A couple years ago I tried out a Drip.FM subscription with an artist I like. This platform is no longer active but the subscription fee was around $40 a year or so which I paid up front to the artist. I thought it was a good value for fans because a large amount of unreleased music was offered to subscribers as well as the artist's complete back catalog at the time.

Not strictly ambient, but been listening to these older electronic releases lately:

Lucky & Easy - Hookahs CD

Various Artists - Ruts DVD compilation - Ampoule and Meakusma label collaboration.

Pub - Legless CD

St. Germain - Tourist 2xCD

I always like reading these lists because I am typically so far behind on new releases.

Running quite a bit behind on newer ambient related releases, but have played the following recently, not all strictly ambient:

Circular Ruins - Clock House

Atrium Carceri/Cities Last Broadcast/God Body Disconnect - Miles to Midnight

Yoshimi - Fragile + Failed Stories

Mick Chillage - Epinaz

A friend is looking at having a CD manufactured (not ambient music). He hasn't decided on CD or CD-R yet but the run will probably be 100-150. I know people here have had experience with small run CD manufacturing so I thought I would ask. He's located in the U.S. but might be open to a non-U.S. plant if the pricing and quality are right. Thanks.

I like that BC does these types of articles but they always seem to miss out on certain artists that really should be mentioned...

Biosphere - Cirque (2016 Version) [2016], Patashnik II [1994]

Another master of his craft, whether that be expressed in nocturnal wanderings like "A Circular Path" or heartbreaking daydreams like "Too Fragile to Walk On". Jenssen just truly achieves something otherworldly with his music, his minimalism is so sharp and poignant.

Cirque was the first album by him I ever heard, still sounds incredible to me now. Haven't heard the latest reissue yet...
