Rolling Ambient/Modern Composition/Drone Thread 2018 Edition


#121

Really enjoyed the one “Tahoe” from Dedekind Cut. Lush ambiance at its finest.


#122

Missed this recommendation at the time, but it came up on one of the Bandcamp ambient lists and I can confirm it’s very very good.

New Shall Remain Nameless is great btw - much darker and more haunting than last year’s release, but really good. Would recommend starting with the debut for the uninitiated, but a really exciting artist based on these two releases.

Not to clog up this thread, but I put out an album yesterday which I think some of you would like. It’s inspired by early-mid 90s Autechre and I’m really pleased with it. Yer man McGarnagle done the mastering and it sounds mint.

New Jon Hassell album coming out June 8th. First album since 2009’s “Last Night the Moon Came Dropping Its Clothes in the Street”. Yes please! New single dr


#125

whoops got cut off there. Meant to say new single “dreaming” up on spotify now.


#126

March was a great month, enjoying dedekind cut and gray acres and (its more electronic but has touches of ambient) Nanook of the North, but a couple that I don’t think have been mentioned yet that i’m loving are…

Carlos Suero and Pepo Galan (ambient drone with some lovely electronic touches)

and

C Diab - Exit Rumination (ambient modern classical)


#127

Anyone like Christina Vantzou? New album out today. No.4


#128

Really liking this C. Diab album on first listen. I could listen to hazy sombre trumpet all day. And I love that Nanook of the North record.


#129

This really is very good. Parts of it remind me of Stars of the Lid. Just discovered she’s married to Adam Wiltzie.


#130

That Carlos Suero and Pepo Galan album is really good. Listening now. Great rec.


#131

“I put out an album yesterday” evergreen post haha


#132

Enjoying the Eliane Radigue choice from this week. Sounds like a Mars Rover trolling through space trying to pick up some alien radio frequency. And I mean that in nothing but a good way haha.


#133

dammit wrong thread… I need coffee


#134

I did a little quarter-year roundup of some of my favourite records of 2018 so far, many of which are by ambient/drone artists, including Angelo Harmsworth, Byron Westbrook, Celer + Forest Management, Ugasanie, and David Terry. Hope you guys find something ya like on there :slight_smile:


#135

Haven’t checked out your blog yet - sure it’s great - but have given it a like purely on the name!


#136

This is the loveliest shimmery warm drone


#137

Well, those are all the magic words for me. Diving in immediately.


#138

An album of disorienting and constantly evolving long-form techno that unfolds patiently over the course of an hour like a slowly growing dust storm. Bringing to mind Ricardo Villalobos at his loosest and most improvisational, the music breathes circularly and sweeps up all matter, both synthetic and organic, in a twisting maelstrom of intricate rhythms and ghostly, half heard counter rhythms that create the sort of impossible patterns that can only be revealed through chance and constant variation, like watching a supercomputer cycle through an infinite number of mathematical sequences and potential equations.

Well colour me interested!

This is nice writing - gonna go through this list


#139

Ah this is good stuff. Reckon @GrandMoffTarkin would enjoy it.


#140

Correct.
