World Listener - 絶妙な均衡 - Zetsumyou Na Kinkou
Most of the WL releases are field recordings. But, occasionally, something more ambient emerges in the catalog. This is a great one, and it sounds amazing with headphones.

A few days ago I discovered a new label from Macedonia.

I enjoy: https://elanvital.bandcamp.com/album/sand-the-wandering-place

These two have been playing a lot over the past few days. I love the depth and atmosphere of both of these 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

It's good to see you back on the forum again.

Hiemal - Cathedral Rocks

https://hiemalambient.bandcamp.com/album/cathedral-rocks

Hiemal is a great composer, composing melodies within the reverb and echo. I like that very much.

NP: Wanderings Within Forests of Despondency
https://hiemalambient.bandcamp.com/album/wanderings-within-forests-of-despondency

Thanks for the recommendation. Hiemal has a ton of music to go through so it can be a bit much to figure out where to go next when it comes to his older releases.

From his older works there is another epic one that stands out, darker mood but same tranquility.

Solivagant Ghost of Cimmerian Woods

I've gotten through most of it so far and it's a nice dronescape.

Sheku - Sheku Plays Elgar.
Beautifully recorded album (but then I just love cello)

Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza - Rainforest Hill (I + II)
Lo-fi ambient in the spirit of the more deliberately ambient side of the vaporwave scene. This is really delicate and drifting.

Steve Brand - Magical Thinking
Oh man, this is fantastic! Such deep sound spaces, with nice pauses, fascinating instrumentation, and a contemplative atmosphere.

Suso Saiz - Nothing is Objective

Didn't know about this until today but it's great stuff from a legend in the Spanish ambient scene.

I am really enjoying the Low Volume Music of Steve Roach and Dirk Serries. https://projektrecords.bandcamp.com/album/low-volume-music
The minimalist flow and murmurs are just right to soothe after a hectic morning... quality ambience by two masters.

Yagya - Old Dreams and Memories
Wow. Ambient dub techno combined with authentic cello and violin performances. This works much better than I would have anticipated.

Shades of Orion 3 - Namlook and Inoue For me a masterpiece, like much of their work together. One of my favourite albums of all time and all genres.

Now Robert Schroeder- Ambient Occlusion Berlin school however also much ambience.

Stay safe and healthy folks.
