>ambient thread that doesnt mention tim hecker or fennesz
Calm down friend. From what I heard, some decent ideas in there but they're not really ambient, they're just sort of random electronic tracks meandering hoping to form into some kind of coherent idea but never quite making it. Keep at it tho.
seconding Substrata and Somnium
not even really strictly ambient
more ambient techno
same goes for this but it's god tier as well
He totally sold out once he released The Dream tho
I really like Ambient 2 as well
Ordered a Celer tape the other day
I agree with your choice too, anon
Just got around to listening to Stealth the other day was pretty nice as well
oh my god this thread is so depressing. here's some entry level MODERN ambient/drone, the eluvium is p good too I'd also recommend Natural Snow Buildings' Dance of the Moon and the Sun if you like a little freak folk thrown in with your ambient.
I really enjoy the dynamic created by using both. I personally find the more free-form pieces more rewarding, but the contrast between the two makes the album more effective than either would be on its own.
Got into this recently. Stars of the Lid has already been recommended.
I liked this.
10/10 so far.
Mostly personal connections but I really do think these are some of the best out there.
Aloof Proof - Expo Two Piano Text
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Bloodstream Sermon
A lot of people argue Love is a Stream too, also really solid.
Preslav Literary School - La Reflexion Du Tir
Yeh that's a pretty good one as well I've sampled it and various Dustin O'Halloran solo stuff far too many times though...
question, what's the difference between lounge and ambient?
Oh, I've got a big soft spot for this album too.
It's better than Tired Sounds imo
this is my favourite ambient album though
