Awesome indeed. Love when ambient artists do live shows in churches. Hopefully they record the experience.
Biosphere has reissued Polar Sequences - unfortunately postage to Europe (via bandcamp) is pretty high. Haven’t heard that one and didn’t think it was on Spotify but just found it so going to give that a listen.
This on The Quietus today. Thought it was an interesting article but all the while I was thinking there’s a simple solution: don’t listen to spotify playlists.
Huh, I listened to this yesterday evening by coincidence. It’s an all-time classic. The other HIA collab, Birmingham Frequencies is pretty good too but doesn’t quite hit the same heights.
I’ve been wondering what became of @stoneinfocus. No posts in here or on their blog since June would be a real shame to never hear from them again - I thought the blog was such a lovely, thoughtful labour of love, and input itt was awesome. Hope everything is ok!
Yeah, miss that guy
For those of you who loved Colin Mawson’s Moons of Jupiter, I’ve done a reinterpretation (‘remix’ doesn’t feel quite right) of the tracks in an attempt to do something similar to Biosphere’s Shenzhou.
Also a new Ian William Craig out today!
Yep, it’s definitely nothing new, but then I’m very partial to gently evolving drone with churny undercurrents, so all fine by me.
What does everyone think of the new Hotel Neon, I actually prefer it to Means of Knowing
It’s great - those guys can seemingly do no wrong
Oh, shit! Lovely.
I thought I was burnt out on IWC but that new one is so good!
We should do an ambient album of the year thread list thing, I wouldn’t mind running it!
It’s Jake Muir btw
As in we all pick our favorite album of the year and then put it in a thread, or we all list a bunch of ambient albums we enjoyed this year?
like each come up with a top ten list was more of what I was getting at…
Yeah everyone can do a top 5 and I’ll add it all up!
well I’ll get it fired up then. Five I thoroughly enjoyed this year in order:
- Warmth- Parallel
- Dedekind Cut-Tahoe
- 36- Circuit Bloom
- C. Diab- Exit Rumination
- Gray Acres- Self Titled
Plenty of others…without a doubt looking forward to some others lists and albums I may have missed.
