    Banco De Gaia ((shudder))
    Yeah, googled it and found almost as soon as I had written it. Got to protect that ratio.
    Have you listened to Grouper yet?

    That blog also says that October Language is the best example of ambient music ever made??
    Sounds like it maybe worth a listen.

    Bizarrely enough I was just about to post one more reccomendation which I had previously forgotten: October Language by Belong.

    You should definitely check it out - it's an album that can be enjoyed quietly but for my money one that should be enjoyed fucking loud as it's at volume that it's true magnificence becomes most apparent.:)

    Saddleback is another good ambient band. It might be a little busy for some peoples tastes.
    Get "Everythings A Love Letter"
    Its more of a live band type affair.

    tee hee. i did some laptop djing at an experimental night on tuesday, playing pretty much random songs from the various albums I've downloaded as a result of this thread... and now i've been booked for a gig on monday in manchester, supporting the splendid Machinefabriek.

    i feel like a massive fraud... :D

    Well I reccomended a few pieces by machinefabriek himself....

    Maybe you should play them and upstage him?:D

    i think it's bad form to play an artist's work in the same gig tbf...

    You utter bastard!

    This is the first post that has moved me to respond in almost a year.

    In any case, my recommendations...

    Reeeeally ambient:

    William Basinski - Melancholia
    William Basinski - 92982
    Mokira - Persona

    More piano and strings but still ambient at heart:

    Max Richter - The Blue Notebooks
    Max Richter - Memoryhouse
    Jacaszek - Treny
    Peter Broderick - Float
    Hauschka - Ferndorf
    Sylvain Chauveau - Nocturne Impalpable

    Bit more electronic style shit going on but you know, it's ambient:

    Murcof - Cosmos
    Murcof - Martres
    Hannu - Hintergarden
    Variant - The Setting Sun

    have you ever tried the fax label?
    low quality control but some gems, esp the first silence collabs, dreamfish, air and the collabs with tetsuo inoue and deep space network. oh, and from within too
