£1.99? Great find!

Couldn't believe my luck, perfect condition too. Have actually found a few Budd , Eno and some ambient collections in the same shop over the years, although it's mainly Rock and vinyl orientated. Never thought I would come across Mr Namlook's class music though . Will be checking more often now   :)


Quaeschning and Schnauss- Synthwaves . The Tangerine Dream men. Very good indeed. Not strictly ambient obviously but with a blend of Berlin School and more modern electronica. Recommend checking it out. Bit of a grower also

Oldfield - Return to Ommadawn - nice stuff.
Tull - Thick as a Brick . Steve Wilson remix .


Juta Takahashi - Albion , music inspired by the landscape of the UK. The album cover is befitting of the music, absolutely beautiful ambient of the highest quality. That photo has to be my homeland I suspect. North West Highlands or Skye possibly, stunning. Had to get the iTunes download as not on bandcamp unfortunately. Available on CD baby though.

Also.......from cryochamber......

Randall Collier - Ford ..... Remnants . A dark ambient beauty from the depths of a subterranean city at night I suspect  ;). Reminiscent of Lightwave - Nachtmusic which is high praise.

Both albums highly recommended.


Klaus Schulze - Mirage - 40th anniversary release.

Eivor - Slor - in Faroese 


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)


downloading the 16 and 15 discs - looking forward to listening to them.


Hey everyone! I just released my first ambient EP on Bandcamp and would love it if you took a listen. The last song is inspired by Tolkien lore... soooooo you should check it out!

This link is to the LOTR song, but you can get to the rest of the EP from here.


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


Looking forward to hearing this.
Love the cover
The Circular Ruins / Lammergeyer / Nunc Stans


Memories... Do Not Open - The Chainsmokers


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.


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

Peter Benisch - Waiting For Snow FAX

Tangerine Dream - Sessions 2 Constant play on the long journey down to Glasgow today. Very interesting   ;)



Thanks for posting about EIS and the Winter-Light releases. I grabbed EIS off BC and liked it a lot. The WL discs are in-route, should be here next week.


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


Music For Sleep - Entirely collection for just 3,60€ !
Barghain - Not your average ambiance...


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.


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.


- Carlo Giustini: Non Uscire (few cassettes are available directly from the artist for 5€)

- I've joined "Music For Sleep" project on Patreon! great deal, 3$ at month for 2 releases each month!
1 patreon only + 1 from bandcamp
Best discovered project for Ambient lovers:
his bandcamp here:


Ah! So many inspiring records of late... A quick rundown:

*William Basinski - Melancholia
*William Basinski - A Red Score in Tile

*Absolutely obsessed with these two. They seem to fit together so perfectly; such a deep feeling of despair yet tinged with a longing akin to daydreams. Two very powerful and resonant albums. Now, moving on...

Lawrence English - Wilderness of Mirrors
Lawrence English - The Peregrine
Lawrence English - Viento
Alessandro Cortini + Lawrence English - Immediate Horizon

Biosphere - Autour de la Lune
Biosphere - The Hilvarenbeek Recordings

Convextion - 2845

B12 - Electro-Soma

*Sonologyst - Silencers: The Conspiracy Theory Dossiers

*Really impressed with his output. An incredibly talented and diverse artist whom I hope to hear a lot more from as his music is so intensely personal and introspective.
