Let's get some silent lovin' started. What is the last ambient release you listened to and how did you like it? Any good new stuff?
Lucette Bourdin is my favourite newest find. It's that warm drone ambient that feels like it's hugging your ears. Gorgeous.
My most recent ambient love is the new Ricardo Donoso - Sarava Exu.
It's actually amazing to sleep to, some really unique sounds and styles.
Also I highly recommend;
>Zarr. - A Wandering Clarity
>k - Lumi (Fellow /mu/ producer who was looking for feedback on his work)
Liner notes on Music for Airports:
>Ambient Music must be able to accomodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting.
Is this a good way of assessing ambient music? This quote has really stuck with me whenever I hear ambient stuff.
Finishing this right now
CD 1 is really spacey, CD 2 has more psychedelic sounds
I like part III better
I just listened to Trilogie De Mort by Eliane Radigue, and have been really digging David Tagg's Fundamentals Of Orchid Biology lately. Haven't listened to any "real" ambient this year but I did listen to Jeff Bridges albums, The Sleeping Tapes. It was really interesting, but I don't think there is very much replay value in it. Anything from the last year or so that you guys would recommend?
i listened to this today while stoned, and it felt like really breezy and relaxing.
any good suggestions based on this? i dig hecker's noisier albums but i was wondering if there are other albums similar to this.
This is more noisier and dronier than Radio Amor but still hits me in the same spot.
Like Hearts Swelling by Polmo Polpo
Depths by Windy & Carl
listening to William Basinski's The Disintegration Loops for three hours straight now, two hours to go!
also, Tim Hecker's Ravedeath, 1972 is my favorite album of all time, hands down.
personally I find Stars of the Lid boring, but I love A Winged Victory for the Sullen's s/t.
Deaf Center's Pale Ravine and last year's Recount are very solid, same with OP's pic related
Biosphere's Substrata is great, and I recommend to all of you this year's split with Deathprod - "Stator".
Raime - Quarter Turns Over a Living Line, Belong - October Language, Deathprod's own Morals and Dogma are all solid
Kreng's Grimoire and this year's The Summoner are great
FUCK, I can go forever like this, this is probably my favorite genre ever.
soo maybe some slightly more obscure stuff?
Thomas Koner - Permafrost
Hildur Guðnadóttir - Leyfðu ljósinu
Jacaszek - Treny, Glimmer, Pieśni
just discovered someone named Kwajbasket on Bandcamp and I instantly fell in love with his work, especially The Long Way Out
I've noticed that my favorite ambient albums fit that assessment perfectly, so I'd say that that's a good way, yes
2014 was an incredible year for ambient in my opinion, here's a few of my favorites:
Ian William Craig - A Turn of Breath
Hakobune - Seamless and Here
Symbol - Online Architecture
Kyle Bobby Dunn - Kyle Bobby Dunn & The Infinite Sadness
Hammock - The Sleepover Series, Volume Two (check this out even if you dislike Hammock's other work, this is different and by far their best release)
you're a cool dude, although we have opposite opinions on Stars of the Lid and Biosphere
i have been waiting waay too long to listen to this masterpiece by brian eno
while i still think that 2000s ambient is far superior to this 80s stuff, some tracks on this probably count to the best ambient tracks i ever heard, especially an ending (ascent)
I've got the field recording Grouper put out with the 500 special edition versions of her vinyl if anybody wants that?
I would say the man who died in his boat but its gotta be ruins it was easy my AOTY for 2014 I played that shit so much, I mean its why I went out my way to buy the special edition from Discogs for like £50
Also while im waiting for this to upload can somebody please give me some recs related to this?
Liz might be my favorite musician so far, but I'm not feeling Ruins (yet). I'm trying very hard though but then again I'm more inclined to the drones in her music, rather then the folk influences
yeah that's understandable I can see how some people were put off by it but for me at least.I mean my favorite track from The man who died in his boat was Being her Shadow and considering Ruins is pretty much in the same vein as that It couldn't have been better really.
foremost Apollo (Atmospheres and Soundtracks) by Brian and Roger Eno
Evening Star by Fripp & Eno, Evening Star is GOAT track on that album
Substrata by Biosphere is very Eno-ish, recommended
Brian Eno is very prolific and has done some very good art rock early on, check out Another Green World and Before and After Science
Stealth by Sleep Research Facility
Purifying Fire by Lustmord
All of Robert Rich
Also this as a bonus Consumed by Plastikman, sophisticated fusion of Dark Ambient and Techno imho
Also because you like Grouper, definitely check out Meshes of Voice by Jenny Hval & Susanna
thanks for uploading!
Recently discovered Capsule and their album Caps Lock is shaping up to be one of my new favorites
Okay so im a huge pleb and of all the /mu/core stuff I really like BoC. I was told this was ambient, so I found an ambient chart and listened to stuff on it. I liked a lot of it, but none of it really struck me as the same genre as BoC. Should I be looking somewhere else?
I'm late to the party on this one, but Fennesz's Endless Summer
This aint ambient bro
I don't listen to a whole lot of ambient, but I really think this is one of the most beautiful albums of any genre and should be considered essential ambient.
