Rolling Ambient/Modern Composition/Drone Thread 2018 Edition


#304

This is good and haunting cello-based modern classical with a bit of percussion and processed vocals.


#305

Really enjoying ‘Themes for Television’ by Johnny Jewel. Really cinematic ambient/electronica/lo-fi. Red Curtains, in particularly, is magic.


#306

This was great, equal parts brutal and beautiful.


#307

This is really nice, on Hammock’s label, he has also put out both Slow Meadow records.


#308

moving towards the darker ambient realm, Chris Russell has a new one out I’m digging at the moment…


#309

A really nice Hotel Neon live album here. Some seriously niche radio station to play this in full!


#310

Love her first album - didn’t seem to get much notice.


#311

Yeah haven’t heard it but gonna check it out


#312

Yep it’s bloody lovely - they’ve become an instant purchase group for me.


#313

They’re on my radar now, thanks to you. I think I got one of the last CD copies of Means Of Knowing. It’s gorgeous.


#314

Only discovered this today, the Sigur Ros ‘Liminal’ thing. Some lovely varied stuff on here, I am a massive fan of the Riceboy Sleeps record Jonsi made as well. Think the visuals are trying a bit too hard to be ‘haunting’.


#315

getting teary eyed at my desk in work listening to this song


#316

Thinking of taking a punt on this compilation (love the cover!) but does anyone know the music?

I listened to but didn’t really connect with the referenced recent re-issues by Midori Takada and Yasuaki Shimizu, so maybe I shouldn’t.


#317

wow this was fantastic, need to see them live pronto!


#318

dream tour Hotel Neon and Warmth.


#319

They’ve just announced a bunch of gatefold CDs for various releases btw


#320

Satie, Eno, Nils Frahm, chill Aphex oriented sounds from earlier this year: susurrus


#321

Always been a Benjamin Shaw and this is really nice, recorded entirely it seems in public library!


#322

Anyone heard the new Olafur Arnalds yet? Still haven’t gotten around to it. Putting it on the ever growing list…


#323

It’s really good, and I’m generally pretty ambivalent towards the modern classical side of ambient.
