    Probably the longest time I've ever waited for a question to be answered on U75 but thanks! :D

    I discovered lots of music from this thread first time round so I think it's time for a bump. Anyone got anything new to recommend? I still get emails from machinefabriek but he releases so much it's difficult to keep up!

    For my part I can heartily recommend 'Portland Vows - Living With Animals'... I suspect the OP is already aware of it though :)

    I'm really pleased with it - Bob says he has a load more ready to go, so I'm looking at a follow up release in the next few months. I've a few other bits coming out soon which definitely fit the 'lush ambient' bracket too...

    Low Light mixes at Mixcloud are well worth a listen.

    Just had a listen to Portland Vows - great stuff....

    Good to see the re-appearance of this thread!

    I've not been submerged in so much of this music of late - one album from last year that I listened to endlessly though was 'Where all is fled' by Steve Hauschildt from Emeralds. So good....

    Which jogged my memory about their earlier pioneering "No Pussyfooting". The only link I can find looks dodgy: 365 com

    I noticed that Wolfgang Voigt (of Gas) is playing at Tusk festival in October btw, so I presume there'll be some other dates crop up shortly. Or just go to Tusk, it's brilliant.

    this is pretty great as well, could have come up with a better name for the project than "hvide-sejl-varg-f-valentin" mind

    This is my eldest's bedtime music atm minus track 3 and another one she finds spooky. She has trouble sleeping, hasn't responded well to meditation cds and the like in the past, but likes electric counterpoint, I think the rhythm holds her, and this works well too.

    Nice one....

    It is a really great album - my partner and I have been caning it.... but my kids are less impressed than Red Cat's....

    Loads of internet noise the last few days about Pitchfork's 50 best ambient album list, with a number of rival lists cropping up... this one has a 100 album youtube playlist :eek:

    #not the best ambient albums of all time

    Fennesz has done an album with Jim O Rourke - it's very very good - and definitely fits the bill for this lush and ambient thread.....

    I've recently taken delivery of the files for the next album, should be out early next year... in the meantime there's a track on a sampler I'm releasing next week too - I've put it up on soundcloud - sounds like a real step up to me:
    Listen to Portland Vows - Mobile by concretetapes #np on #SoundCloud
