buying one record reviewed in The Wire each month

I was listening to Bjork and John Butcher this morning Statto. 

Well technically, it might be another Bjork (Bork Bork) side project. Or it could be another. 

If you go to www.bandcamp.com you will see what I see. 

I am referring to the two Unknown Artist albums with Bjork collaborating on them.

Dredge - Meteorology - exclusive 8 minute weather forecast of early Summer - for Peter Van Cooten - www.soundcloud.com private stream (respond if interest)
www.ambientblog.net


Regardless of how taken you are with meteorology (the study of weather systems), this new track by Dredge, the alias Mick of Foci's Left label and FL uses for drawn-out basic drones, is at least something to attempt questioning. Mick saw a heavenly axis approach the end of Summer last year (2020) and wanted to capture one year (then) to Summer anew (now).

With lighter reverberation, mainly banded by succulence in insomniac synthesiser territory, Mick sent this out when the piece was at least audible - and unpredictable enough - to be repeated six times its saved length. It is an idea Mick coined off Peter van C of Dutchconzertender -
the author of www.ambientblog.net - for Peter's collection of advanced mix tapes that layer many tracks together in a time-logged, asteroid-crumbling fusion of parts. To the track's credit, it's achingly audible, but it's key to be very critical of, as such termed-"basic" by its writer, ambient and drone such as this.

The general arc of "Meteorology" appears, sonically at best, to describe weather in a similar way to the diseased pandemic; that written, it's different, as Dredge does in the way it handles the memory of Summer itself - just see one of Dredge's key music inspirations: the dragged-out inflecting of Leyland James Kirby and, to its end, the sometimes aptly classed "new age Muzak" of Robert Rich from around 1989 onward. Mike Buckingham, the maker of the Dredge alias and the Foci Left flashback repository of releases, narrows his artistic vision (Buckingham is 33, figuring the smaller influence belt) to somewhere similar to the Ryuichi Sakamoto and Christopher Willits sound of 12k Records. For all it explains about weather, it's simplistically whether or not, there is a parting shot at stargazing fiction, each feedback layer.

Of course, I recommend "Apollo: Atmospheres And Soundtracks Extended 2CD Edition", from Eno, Eno & Lanois (Brian, Roger, Daniel)

As well as the best 80s ambience in "Always Returning"

There is the funniest ambient air, "An Ending (Ascent)

On light, "For All Mankind", a softer non-dischordance. 
Decent value for money in your local record store
