Rolling Ambient/Modern Composition/Drone Thread 2019 Edition


#221

Yeah I picked up Hotel Neon’s Context last week and postal was same as the record…


#222

I’ve seen loads of US bands on bandcamp say that postage overseas has dramatically increased recently and apologising for it. It must be impacting on sales a lot.


#223

It’s certainly impacting on me being able to justify buying them. Which is a shame as I’d really like a lot more ambient loveliness on vinyl.


#224

God damn americans.


#225

I JUST WANT TO SUPPORT INDEPENDENT MUSIC - WHY THE POSTAL SERVICE GOTTA DO ME LIKE THIS?!


#226

I’ve been recently obsessed with Barn Owl. Always liked them but been listening to little else this past week. Anyone else a fan?


#227

Major major fan. Just checked back recently to see if they have anything new coming out. Didnt see anything


#228

No I often check and they seem very quiet. Not sure if they’ve split. The 2 members release stuff separately.


#229

That is lovely


#230

Follow up to 2017’s brilliant ‘Phantom Brickworks’.


#231

Enjoying the latest from Norfolk’s B R O A D S (grrrr) - nice tinkling electronica somewhere around early Warp / BoC:


#232

Not sure this is a follow-up though; this sounds a lot more like his “Bibio” stuff, right? At least from the single Curls, which is great, don’t get me wrong!

If you want a Phantom Brickworks follow-up, he dropped this last year; Phantom Brickworks IV and V.


#233

Well, for me, this is interesting. Seems like Royksopp are using Spotify’s single releases and a playlist to release a series of old cuts, called Lost Tapes. Two tracks on it so far.

Rising Urge is the stand out, lovely dreamy ambient. Seriously nice.


#234

Also, really liking this aswell; Grains and Motes. Is a collaboration between Neil Cowley and Ben Lukas Boysen. Has shades of Mark Pritchard and Vangelis, with some organic sounding percussive elements. Really neat. Kinda like ambient jazz? Or something.


#235

yup IV and V are great, was talking more in terms of a proper LP follow. Read their were tinges of 70’s ambient influences on new record. Here’s to hoping…


#236

Cannot wait for this. Some great collaborators.


#237

Oooooooooooo. :heart_eyes:


#238

This is great. Hopefully a full album follows.


#239

This was really lovely…


#240

Ooooooft been looking forward to this but didn’t realise it was out
