Rolling Ambient/Modern Composition/Drone Thread 2018 Edition


#464

EEK…


#465

saw this earlier (oto mailing list?) and it looks PENG


#466

One of my favourite ambient rekkids is getting reissued :slight_smile:


#467

Hammock’s newest might be ambient album of the year. Its that good.


#468

Didn’t massively feel this on first listen. Then again, I prefer shoegazey/post-rocky Hammock to ambient Hammock so that’s not entirely surprising. Glad you’re feeling it :slight_smile:


#469

Ambient confession time: Hammock really don’t do much for me at all.


#470

Did you listen to Everything and Nothing by them? Was my aoty in 2016. Not ambient for the most part.


#471

Not sure… I think I gave it a listen at the time but if I did it didn’t stick.

I’ve gone back to them every now and again to see if there’s something I’m missing but… :man_shrugging:

It always sounds so polished and clean and “pleasant”. Think I just like a bit more grit and dirt my ambience.


#472

I love the lushness of my ambiance and I felt like I was floating on a cloud, thought it was brilliant. A slight deviation from previous records but the lighter airiness drove me right in.


#473

I love the idea of this being a regular series.

THIS WEEK ON AMBIENT CONFESSION TIME : I really like that Nils Frahm lp that lots of people on here are a bit sniffy about.


#474

:grimacing: too far, buddy. Too far…


#475

I knew it would be you that would ambient-shame me about that.


#476

:wink:


#477

:rofl: that is definitely a thing.


#478

Like background radiation.


#479

Lowering’s next album title.


#480

That’s tempting.


#481

Frahm isn’t really ambient at all, though. Arnalds is a bit more on the ambient side, but I’d classify both as Neo/Modern Classical more than anything else.


#482

Even within my ambient - shaming, I have been ambient - shamed.


#483

Yeah this is bang on. The last track in particular is glorious.
