For The Ambient and mixtape archive 001

Some really fine early morning headphone listening, that. Light caterwauling / found sounds / spookiness / bowed scrapes / scraps of sheet metal music / electro acoustic muskets, all in.

Boombana echoes
Jolts of the discovered world
Reeds and sparks
Unknown manna
Waiting to be unearthed...
Let's riot for that gambit
Open with a flush hand
Turn all toxicity fragrant
And push the devil's hand
Closer to a new world
Unknown manna
Those boombana echoes
Weird track titles
Spoken in another language
Gauging a situation
Gauging a purpose
Understanding musically the grit
Which makes us worth it
Apart from unknown manna
Reeds and sparks fly
Reeds and sparks echo
The boombana echoes

Of course, be sure to take a listen to "Lassitude", English's latest solo album.

Lawrence English, like Grouper and Isarri, has a knack of producing some otherworldly sounds with just a few attempts, a flick of the fingers, or a pedal or two to accompany the shindig.

This is nice Statto Smile

The Ambient Visitor has a new album out.

A interesting piece of data from members of the Frozen Vaults ambient group.

"Kazahana" / "Hange-Ame" - new Hakobune

On this collection of three long-form ambient music tracks for radio transmission environment, SJF creates tonal hues likening him to producers on the Subvert Central forum such as Formication ("Agnosia" EP, but much lighter) and ennui (but much less spacious).

With a fractal portent that yearns for patient listens, Simon James French has produced another installment of fine musical pieces that are as harmonious as they are beguiling. See the link for more information.

A three-day-old message passed me by just a bit.

I received the news of pre-orders for the long-awaited (by me at least) Debacle Records album, "Failings", and the Reaching compilation's last day to be picked up was Bandcamp Friday just gone.

Anyone who is familiar with Debacle Records will know of their penchant for billowing, white-noise-wrapped-in-a-blanket clouds o' reverb splendour, as shown on releases by Karnak Temples, Brain Fruit, and various compilation entrants including a reference to the blanket aforementioned.

Their style of ambient is free form, in the purest sense of the word. The music drifts like an octagon from side to side, never quite matching up with the indices of the previous side. The idea appears to be re-generation, and re-generative or re-kinetic music, but all the while, there's a awful lot of progress and depth to be had just taking in the Debacle Records stronghold of releases.

Unknown Tone Records just announced a new album by Buen Aurelio Malazar.

Unsure I know much about this artist in any sense. Tyresta has been on the label before, and that's good stuff. However this is an unknown name to me. Quality label, similar to Dronarivm.

Les Disques Imaginations: Alexandre Navarro new album: 26 impressions de l'ame Purple tape ltd.

New message from Bing Satellites too: New ambient music alert! Deep longform ambient drones from my project The ambient drones of Bill Baxter. Out now, name-your-price download.

Hawk Moon Records just released a track by 94 Skies.

And last but no means least, a release on the colossal Opal Tapes archive imprint: Sote - Moscels LPs in stock and shipping immediately. Looking and sounding superb on transparent and black vinyl. Just one more week to order one of the MOSCELS shirts before pre-order closes and we get them printed up.

...And a recommendation looking back to March 2016.

Don't forget to listen to "Gold V1 Mix" by Joanna Quail (or Jo Quail for short) if you haven't already. Absolutely wonderful music. Cello and electronics style chamber music.

And the two tracks by me that accompany it ain't half bad either. :teeth:

"Rhythms Of Refuge"
