ive been listening to reflections in suspension practically on repeat for weeks. this album is great. any more steve roach i should check out?
also have been listening to eluvium and william basinski (pic related). I found melancholia pretty good so now i have high expectations for the disintergration loops, quite excited to listen to them
Great album but this is Roach's best.The Aboriginal influence and the concept of dream states is amazing.
Iceage is band dis shit good
Yes! I found this 2xCD at a thrift store in Philly. Came with a full booklet and everything, $1. A fantastic late-night listen.
This is an ambient thread, friend. Iceage are not an ambient group.
Hello, just getting into ambient. I recently have been listening to Klaus Schulze's stuff: Irrilicht, Cyborg, and soon Timewind. Absolutely LOVE Irrilicht and Cyborg good god, any more like these?
Also, does anyone have any ambient with percussion? Amon Duul II's Marylin-Monroe-Memorial Church is one of my favorite tracks ever, but I wouldn't know where to find stuff like it.
The sublte guitar plucks, the bass notes, the drum climax at the end. It's fucking magnificent. Recs would be greatly appreciated.
melancholia is the only album he's made with traditional song lengths. Not amazing, still quite enjoyable, but the disintegration loops is GOAT. Especially Part 2, but all are good. If you enjoy TDL check out 92982, Nocturnes, and Shortwavemusic.
Kevin Drumm - Imperial Distortion.
It sounds just like the artwork
>mfw a Steve Roach thread
A rare treat. You guys are alright.
And oh wow, I see Roach just released an album in 2015. Brb.
this album and all of this guys work is underappreciated but sick a f
>no Discreet Music in the top row
>no Eno at all
This is the most patrician of ambient pieces.
That's an old version, here's the newest one.
Ambient 4 is on it. I find Discreet Music corny, though the Pachelbel tracks after it are good.
Check out other German music from that time like (early) Tangerine Dream, Edgar Froese, Harmonia, and Cluster.
As for ambient with percussion, check out the middle track on Tangerine Dream's Alpha Centauri.
I didn't hear too much ambient from 2015, but this struck me as a great example of a dark space ambient with a mean streak.
ian william craig - a turn of breath
bas van huizen - kluwekracht (more drone)
jasmine guffond - yellow bell
rafael anton irisarri - a fragile geography
alphaxone - altered dimensions (dark ambient)
already heard those and Xerrox is in my top 10 but thanks for the recs, good taste.
I believe you mean Cradle For the Wanting for Ian William Craig, and I did indeed love Yellow Bell, will check out the rest, thanks
While I'm at it, great 2015 ambient not yet mentioned in this thread:
En - City of Brides
James Murray - The Sea in the Sky
Abul Mogard - The Sky Had Vanished
Anne Garner- Be Life (not strictly ambient I guess but still highly recommended)
I like that Dark Ambient shit that is goin' on in "Darkest Before Dawn". Only album I know about Steve Roach. Listened to it many times while working or sleepin' or doin' chores. I also enjoy Tangerine Dream or Lustmord.
So mainly I am lookin' for new fucking sinister Dark Ambient
Happy shit like
"Global Communication - 5:23".
Kinda, but by the merit of the title track which takes up Side A, it should be on there. It's arguably the first link of the chain these albums can trace back to before going to Satie and Stockhausen.
The idea of self generative music, and how Eno used two small samples to create the piece is mind blowing.
Listened to this last night stoned with all the lights off - transcendental
