Very close to placing my orders (first of 2013!) for:

Taylor Deupree-Faint.  The $30 box set version beckons, but my wallet keeps screaming "WHOOOOAH buddy!"

Rapoon-Seeds in the Tide Volume I.  This is a 2-disc set on Zoharum out of Poland, containing one disc of "rare" compilation tracks, and the second disc containing the original CDR version of "Messianic Ghosts," which supposedly is quite different from the cleaned up reissue on Klanggalerie.  Still not 100% decided on this; it could be good, but don't know about sound quality of Disc 2 and whether the comp tracks will be worth it to spend $20 on this set. 


CD and DVD. Very 'ambient' without being electronic. Very nice DVD of The Dartmoor itself with the music.


I finally got my hands on the full collection of William Basinski's Disintegration Loops this Christmas.
I got 'em second hand but they're in good condition and I've been after them for way too long.
Cue many weeks sprawled on my bed with loops on repeat and zoning out into unknown consciouses.
The first loop will always be my favourite, it's just amazing: William Basinski - d|p 1.1
I AM A CAR - electronic/ambient/minimal music from Leeds, UK.

Ambient DNA

Why do you folks make of the new Autechre?

I can't make my mind up about it. But I do know the second track, 'irlite (get 0)', is one of the strangest and most fantastic things I have heard in a long time. It's got a wonderfully thick, foggy, dark, surreal but fun atmosphere. The new album also sounds much better and more 'three-dimensional' on headphones to me than most of their more recent albums do.

Rapoon--Vernal Crossing Revisited 2cd.  Remaster of original album plus new album which reinterprets VC.  New stuff sounds great, can't wait to receive this one.


Autechre: Exai. This one is worth talking about. Autechre are making some of the most fascinating music around. It feels like they've gotten to a stage where they are just having a blast with it, and incidentally making some of the most unique while still being listenable electronica. By no means an instantly "easy" listen, this is a tome to be studied and enjoyed in reverie. I feel a sense that they are not trying to be avant-garde, they are making the music that's inside their minds, and it just comes out that way. Can't believe they've been around this long and are still sounding fresh and awesome, while most others of Warp have faded or given up.

FRKWYS07: This one sounds good on first few listens. Classic electronica sound.

Senor Coconut: El Baile Aleman. Bought this on a whim because it looked so amazingly weird. Haven't had a chance to listen as I am out of town and away from stereo, and Mac won't let me burn it. But I feel there is great promise and joy here.


Ha ha, checking out some forum stats there in view of recent discussions and found this old topic, seems a shame to have let that drop, could be an interesting one.

This weeks ambient..............

Eeem - Peregrination. Thought this was sold out and I had missed out. Had an email from Lee at ...txt to say he had found some discs. £8 bargain. First listen complete this rainy Saturday morning. Excellent. Dreamy ambient in the main with some glitchy and environmental sounds on one or two tracks. Straight back on the player, right now.


I recently picked up Thomas Koner's Tiento De Las Nieves, which I liked very much.  I also picked up Oophoi's Penumbra Recollected 1 (Databloem), which combines Gigi's three Penumbra EPs with the Italian electronic musician L.E.M.

Experimental Avant Garde.....with the graphic notation created for the music...facinating :)
"Life is one big road, with lots of signs, so when you ride to the Roots, do not complicate your mind, ... "  Bob Marley


Anderson Ponty Band. Interesting, some good stuff on it. An absolutely dire, reggae version of Time and a Word though.

A new record shop has opened in a fairly small town near me. Yes a brand new shop selling brand new vinyl etc. Quite amazing really.

So had to support it, first purchase......

Riverside - Love Fear and the Time Machine. £22 so not a cheap medium this vinyl revival, although double gatefold album with CD also.

Superb album.


S.E.T.I. The Data Logs Of Astro Myrmex on ...txt reissue. Excellent space ambient.

The Golden Cake Company - Travelesque EP. Warm, dreamy ambient with some guitar sounds and weirdness. Great stuff.

I have that SETI disc.  Good (outer) space ambient.
