The three albums released on Lee Norris' new label Neotantra.

Futuregapher and Eric 'the' Taylor - Effects of Clouds
Ambidextrous - Vision By Zero
Wurrm - Apotropaic

Atmospheric, beautiful ambience of the highest order from all three. What a start to this label, augurs well for the future. Really superb stuff and highly recommended.

Think my favourite so far is ;



Vision by Zero

Thom Brennan - Soundgardens
The best news of the year so far: Thom Brennan is on Bandcamp! And he's released three new albums. One of those, Soundgardens, is my favorite thus far. Blissful, meditative washes of sound. Love it.

Great news about Thom on bandcamp. I have briefly managed to check the albums out and agree, think it's Soundgardens for me also. Hope to immerse myself in this music at the weekend and acquire all 3 from BC asap.

As ever, thanks for the tip on this one Richard. Superb album I have been listening to on Spotify all week. Really beautiful, atmospheric stuff. I will have to get this.

Cheers

Hey Seren, I read a couple of Reynolds books a while back and really enjoyed both...

Century Rain - sci fi, investigative , horror  weirdness from memory. Very good indeed.

Terminal World - almost steam punkish, strange world and fascinating. Really loved this one and hope to read again soon.

Excellent album and helped me discover the Winter Light label.

Also have the Bridge to Imla and Kloob albums which are great. Couple of newer ones I need to check out on the label.

Forrest's new album - The Fata Morgana Dream.

Hypnotic, drifting, atmospheric, beautiful ...... all the usual adjectives for this excellent album. And yet another stunning album cover.

Eno - Music for Installations

Stunning music from one of the masters, really definitive. Beautiful box set with interesting book regarding these insatallation projects. Highly recommended.

The Winterhouse - Unlit Passages. This has been on constant play the past few weeks. Stunning album. Haunting, dark, disturbing but beautiful. And fittingly gorgeous album cover to suit the whole concept. One of the best releases of the entire year for me.

Also been playing the new album from Mr Roach - Mercurius. I like it a lot.

I love Apsaras too.

Autumn of Communion - Reservoir of Video Souls
The next album from Lee and Nick, despite the fact that every album up to this point since the 5th AoC release has been the "last one." Glad they can't resist collaborating; this is great stuff.

ILUITEQ - Soundtracks for Winter Departures
Really well-crafted cinematic ambient music on ...txt.
https://txtrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/soundtracks-for-winter-departures

Great choices  ;). That AOC is one of their best. Originally just bought the download as trying to reduce the physical products at the moment ( Storage overload ) Had to get the CD also though, just too good. Nice and unusual artwork/packaging.

Not been on in a while, hope all are well and enjoying the music.

Have to advise of these new release on ...txt.



au Voyage - Craosa. Beautiful, chilled relaxing ambience and drones.

https://txtrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/craosa




and




Iluiteq - Soundtrack for Winter Departures.

Another really beautiful ambient album, some field recordings, hints of melody and wonderful drifting ambient soundscapes.

This label has now been taken over by BlackParticle who worked closely with Lee Norris. The high quality consistency continues. Lee now has the Fantasy Enhancing and Zeit labels which are equally interesting.

I like Spotify and use it to research music I would like to purchase. It therefore generates purchases that I might not otherwise make. I do also recall an article from Sam Rosenthall at Projekt saying that he had changed his view somewhat re streaming etc as it was beginning to generate reasonable amounts for the label.

I have to say also I absolutely love bandcamp for the same reason, purchase many downloads and even stream using the app more often than not.

CDs, vinyl and cassettes  ;D will still continue to be purchased however storage after a lifetime of collecting music is now a major issue. Thank goodness for downloads in that regard.

Tangerine Dream - Oasis

and then the first track from Seven Letters From Tibet....no rhythm and stunning atmosphere...

I really like Oasis. Spent many moons trying track down the dvd/vhs to see the visuals the music was written for. No luck.

Also , Seven Letters, beautiful music. One of the albums that pointed me in the direction of ambient music. Thanks TD .

Current play -



Roach/ Braheny - Western Spaces , so beautiful .
#36
Thanks Castleview for highlighting Desert Soiltaire. Reminded me this was one one I still had to hear. No sign of it on bandcamp which has probably contributed to me missing it. Had to pick it up on iTunes. Fantastic album, a real mix of styles. I had some tracks on the Desert Collection disc but it is great to hear the rest of this wonderful album. Also picked up Western Spaces which is equally magnificent. Great stuff.

I am liking the sound of these Roach and Rich action figures :) could even get wee synths and assorted musical instruments for them to stand beside.  8)

Since buying The Lost Pieces last week I have been in Steve Roach mode.

Been listening to some of the releases I don't own yet on Spotify. There seem to be a fair few albums added recently. Of all of those listened to, favourites are ;

Invisible
Soul Tones
A Deeper Silence
and
The Desert Inbetween

Great music that must be acquired.

The Lost Pieces was one of the first albums of his I got after Origins which I think was a bit of a mistake, had a tough time really getting into it but it is a compilation of sorts rather than a concept record. It's one I would certainly revisit now though having delved deeper into his early work and some more of his collaborations. Have you heard Eclipse Mix? I'm a bit uncertain about jumping into those "long-form" type of albums of his but that one in particular looks pretty interesting. Any others you may recommend like that?

Hi there AVMO. I have listened to Ecipse Mix. Not sure of it yet, was working whilst it was playing and initially found it a bit heavy on the bass rumble and thus too much whilst trying to concentrate on other matters. Will have to give it another go without distraction.

Off the top of my head, If we are talking long form, I would highly recommend ;

The Passing- melancholy but utterly beautiful
Invisible - Dark and interesting.
A Deeper Silence

And you seriously cannot go wrong with the Structures from Silence - remastered triple masterpiece.

Thanks for mentioning the new Northaunt Chris. Superb piece of work.

Cvac - FAXology is a great album indeed. Totally get the name thing  ;D I thought exactly the same when this was recommended to me when released on FAX. I would also recommend Mick's release on Carpe Sonum - Modes and the ...txt epic Exulansis if indeed you haven't already checked them out. Both available on bandcamp. He is also half of Autumn Of Communion , which I am sure you will be aware of.

cp; Kloob - Remarkable Events
#40
Your welcome cvac, glad you like these releases.

The earlier EIS release on ...txt " Hidden Harmonic" is also superb and recommended.

I am impressed with this Winter Light label just purchased the latest .....



Kloob - Remarkable Events - Mainly dark themes, but hints of melody and subtle voices. The first track develops subtly into a more Berlin School type thing but this is an ambient album of high quality.

Also purchased;

Steve Roach - The Lost Pieces . Superb
Northaunt - Istid III , haunting beauty from the frozen Northlands
