Discussion in 'music, bands, clubs & festies' started by killer b, Apr 21, 2009.
Probably the longest time I've ever waited for a question to be answered on U75 but thanks!
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
you missed off the bandcamp link.
Have you checked out the Preston Field Audio album?
I've downloaded it too but I've mostly been listening to Portland Vows!
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.
low light mixes
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....
I'm enjoying this today
An old favourite of mine.
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.
not strictly ambient, but a lot of stuff on here isn't tbf...some albums not mentioned yet
Jon Hopkins' early stuff: Contact Note and Insides
Susumu Yokota - Sakura
Fragile State - Voices from A Dust bowl
Motohiro Nakshima - and I went to sleep
Irresistible Force, obvs
heh, been listening to the Fripp and Eno stuff a bit lately as well
this is two 20 odd minute slabs of loveliness...
Chris Herbert - Katushki on Low Point who just put out a new Ex Easter Island Head thing too
Klara Lewis - Too
(second album from daughter of him off of out of Wire is ace.)
this is pretty great as well, could have come up with a better name for the project than "hvide-sejl-varg-f-valentin" mind
Just had a listen - great stuff....
Seeing Ex-Easter Island Head this weekend at Sin Eater... looking forward to it.
Finally bought this after listening on youtube a few times. Love it
we got played on Radio 3 the other week - mainstream highbrow acceptance here we come.
Nick Luscombe, Late Junction - BBC Radio 3
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.
It is a really great album - my partner and I have been caning it.... but my kids are less impressed than Red Cat's....
You achieved that when I expressed my approval up thread
New tape out at the weekend btw, couple of tracks up on the bandcamp
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
#not the best ambient albums of all time
This would be my ambient chill out stuff, with a bit of smoochy tempo Real World Records
or reggae dark side of the moon, so damn cool. Don't knock it until you tried it!
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
as promised, here's the new Portland Vows album. I reckon it's fucking great (but then, I would...)
