Forrest Fang - Scenes From a Ghost Train

Another stunning album from Forrest. He really is on a roll with high quality, beautiful, ambient soundscape albums. And album covers it has to be said, what superb artwork. This music has been on constant play for a couple of weeks now. Completely immersive.

Experiments in Silence - Escape to the Skyline
New release from Neil Butler on ...txt. This is a great release: The perfect bridge between modern ambient and 90s/00s-style Fax ambient.

Agree Chris, another great release from this artist,  check out the earlier release on ...txt if you haven't already.

Experiments in Silence - Escape to the Skyline Beautiful mix of ambient styles, another high quality offering from this artist.

I also have a couple of albums I am away to get with my bandcamp voucher which will be on the above list I suspect. Krystian Sheck - al​-​Qāhirah, on Carpe Sonum for one.

Yes I have a feeling that this incident may happen imminently Chris :) , streaming on Spotify at present just to stimulate appropriate action.

Checking out two recent Hic Sunt Leones releases on Spotify.

Alio Die - They Grow Layers Of Life Within
Aglaia - Akupanga ( This is beautiful drifting, spacious ambience)

Two new releases out on the label also I see.

PS there are three A Winged Victory For The Sullen albums on vinyl for sale in my local record shop. Very, very tempting indeed.

Still been purchasing loads of FAX, just about there now ;)

Otras2, Fanger & Siebert, Modula Green, A New Conciousness 2. All superb.

However here is an important mention for an absolutely stunning new ambient release;

Bridge to Imla - The Radiant Sea on the Winter-Light label. Michael Brueckner and Hans-Dieter Schmidt have created something really special here. Deep oceanic ambience with hints of melody and mystery. Atmospheric in the extreme. A top release of 2017. Do yourself a favour and acquire this wonderful album;

PS I also downloaded the Seetyca - Winterlicht album, deep dark winter atmospheres. Also excellent.

Interesting, sounds right up my street, especially as the "nichts are fair drawin' in" here, as we say in this part of the world.

I like winter (as long as its not too long and extreme) and I like my dark ambient in winter , so all is good. Look forward to checking this out later today.

Blake Gibson & Robert Davies - Quiraing
Beautiful atmospheric drone ambient. Highly evocative of the beautiful landscapes that inspired the music. One of the most stunning album covers of all time. Exactly the atmospheres evoked by the Quiraing on Skye.

Next -

Northaunt - Nightpaths Impressive and wonderful dark ambient, yet again, from Northaunt.
I have mainly been on a FAX buying frenzy recently , Otras , Redeye, A Day in the Park, Namlook solo albums and several Move D/ Namlook collabs. FAX overload of new music and it is so good.

However here ye go .......

Deep, dark ambient beauty from the depths of the Norwegian Forests ----

A stunning piece of work.

New album from Northaunt. On bandcamp

Move D / Namlook - The Audiolounge .......... and Wired. 

I suppose fairly beat orientated, but massive ambient leanings with a bit of a jazz vibe thrown in. Love it.
Watched that horrendous storm unfold on CNN last night. The reporter lad that was in Naples , Florida , deserves a medal for his reporting. Unreal stuff.

I think Julio stays near the coast in Florida, recall his beautiful, coastal, photograph album cover. Hope all is ok with him and his family/home/studio.

For me it would be wife/bairns/dugs/cats/Fender/FAX/etc into the motor and head North. Would be gutted about the rest of my gear though.

Randal Collier-Ford -Remnants . Cryochamber release. A dark mysterious album from the subterranean depths of an abandoned city. Excellent

And the name your price downloads from the same label -

Cryochamber 2014
Cryochamber 2015
Cryochamber 2016

Dark Ambient Overload . Superb   8)
From your review Richard this sounds right up my street.

On the weekend listening list. Cheers.
Very good album this, need to check it out again over the weekend.
Listening to this on Spotify right now Jim, beautiful space trip. Great stuff  8)
