Rolling Ambient/Modern Composition/Drone Thread 2019 Edition

(sorry thought it was for me)


#22

Would recommend Entangled Time by Amp to anyone who enjoys bvdub style angelic vocal ambience


#23

Haven’t heard any mentions of Amp for a long time. Picked up (cds, you know me) of Stenorette and Astralmoonbeamprojections last year. Great stuff and will check this out (though not digging these spotify links - I don’t have spotify)…


#24

Yes I concur, this was very beautiful indeed. Loved ‘Water Memory’, not sure how I missed this. That’s the beauty of these boards though!


#25

Had a very transcendent, sleepy afternoon listening to this. Good stuff!


#26

New one on Disintegration State by Mute Branches is wonderful. OPN/Fennesz vibes. The Sunken Restaurant is probably my highlight - just stunning.


#27

Really like this, Zoner II is a great song. I’ve managed to blag a gig writing an ambient music column for a website here in Holland, will definitely write about this for the January one.

I found a copy of Sirenes lurking in my records a while ago and had no idea what it was. Assumed it would just be some indie rubbish from the era I’d given one listen to and written off as a bad buy, so was pleasantly surprised.


#30

Hotel Neon have their entire discography for $9 at the moment. Also mentioned they’ll be coming to the UK :heart_eyes:


#31

Well that’s just silly money, based on your repeated recommendations I’ve just bought the lot!


#32

Ps thanks for the tip!


#33

Ooooh, this has to be done. Will make me feel less guilty about switching to incognito everytime it asks me to pay.


#34

Yeah this is just obscene value. Been listening through it all back to front today and I feel like I’ve robbed them at that price.


#35

6 songs, two hours of serious lushness from Bengalfuel, just released. :clap:


#36

Yeah, I’m on this. I wish I could gift someone my spare download of Means Of Knowing (I bought it on CD last year) but I guess for ~$10 anyone I know who might be interested could just buy the lot for themselves, too.


#37

This is good from December - reminds me a bit of HIU/RA/Mirages era Tim Hecker


#38

Really lovely track on this cassette from yer man Brian Hamilton, who’s the keyboard player in Cymbals Eat Guitars and also owns Smallsound/Bigsound who design make very good boutique guitar pedals. I imagine a bunch of which were put to use here.


#39

Yes, pretty good this. Has echoes of Yellow Swans’ Going Places and the clankier end of Seefeel.


#40

For some reason I’ve never listened to Yellow Swans - where should I start?
