Post some 10/10 ambient albums to cozy up with tonight
Listening to pic related while I write a paper. It's the album that really pushed me to make music of my own so I love it lots.
The rest of Stars of the lids' discog is great of course. Basinski, Hecker, and Fennesz are great too. Can anyone rec me any ambient/drone that sounds like SOTL? specifically the tired sounds of
>ambient/drone that sounds like SOTL
A Young Person's Guite to Kyle Bobby Dunn (or anything else by him)
probably those who are into ambient don't share much and/or there're not many of us who are into the genre
listen to pic related, p obscure but so beautiful
Don't even bother, they can't. It's like they were only allowed to post 10 albums.
Gareth Hardwick / Machinefabriek - Gareth Hardwick & Machinefabriek
Brian Grainger- Eight Thousander
Paul Bradley - Chroma
Darren Harper Descend
Would you have any interest in listening to a 30 min drone ambient album I finished recording yesterday? If not I suggest Symbion Project - Immortal Game. The track "Our Breath Shall Intermix" is gorgeous.
Seconding Labradford, especially their album fixed:context. The track "Wien" off that album is really great.
William Basinski's work outside of TDL is underrated imo
Fallout 3, by Darkroom. I like this album a lot.
any publicity is good for the artist, you just don't want to share
Free your soul, pussies
What does /Mu/ think about BoC?
Pan•American did ambient far better than SoTL could have ever hoped to.
They were even signed to Kranky, how about that. Labradford is a solid choice as well, though.
Love them. Music Has the Right to Children has some of the best ambient songs I've heard, and though Geogaddi is a bit too loud to be considered ambient I still love it as much.
I'm glad you like it!
s/t -> 360 Business / 360 Bypass -> Quiet City
I would consider Pan•American (side project of Mark Nelson [the guitarist and singer of the Labradford]) to be an essential "ambient" exploration.
My everything atm, even when the dude at CD Warehouse chuckled when I got it, and asked if my friends would be impressed... Still vastly life-altering
Straying a little farther from pure Ambient but this is still an extraordinary album 10 years on.
These are definitely some of the most depressing and repetitive threads on this board. The same old stuff again and again. Nearly everything that isn't old is garbage. Tons of "ambient" with cheesy drums and trip hop beats, basically the easy-listening and elevator music of today.
Sorry, I don't mean to be so negative. I'll post some recs. I'd love to hear some noisy/drony stuff, if anybody has suggestions.
Carve out the face of my god by Infinite Body. Excellent, noisy/drony ambient. It got some attention when it came out but I don't see many people posting about it.
Tired Sounds is great, but I've really been enjoying Avec Laudenum recently. It's like their transition record from Ballasted to Tired Sounds from their grittier style to their more professional sound, and it's calming as fuck.
This guy opened at some noise show I went to, cool stuff, great visuals.
Heathered Pearls - Loyal
Otto A. Totland - Pinô
Sort of a very ambient form of neo-classical if you're interested in that sort of thing
Dark, minimal, floating in the abyss vibes:
Eno - Neroli
Deathprod - Morals and Dogma
Thomas Koner - La Barca
NASA Voyager Recordings - Symphonies Of The Planets
There was an album posted in plantcore thread yesterday that featured recordings of swamp/rainforest sounds and general noise. The cover had an Aztec crocodile statue on it. Anyone know what it is?
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement - Black Magic Cannot Cross Water
this is great. Did you listen to Flame by Erik K Skodvin, too?
Y'all need to into underground ambient scene
I fell asleep to this last night - http://spaceslave.bandcamp.com/album/two-crests
My favorite ambient music of all time is this - http://goldtimerstapes.bandcamp.com/album/humming-hills
Great fucking album.
>mfw shamelessly self promote.
I hope you enjoy it tho.
Anyone else into ASC's ambient material? Time Heals All is one of my favorite ambient albums. It's really good for walking around because it progresses and the mood is pretty dynamic.
Also, bvvdub. Fuck yeah
I love that album so much. He released a follow up album that's 8 hours long, and it has the same formula/concept that Somnium had.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention, anon. I like it a lot so far.
This is some of the saddest and depressing music I've heard but it is super fucking good. Always makes me feel like I'm about to die of old age and Im just thinking back on my life in a painfully nostalgic way.
More people should know about Bruno Sanfilippo's work. Extremely relaxing music. Good for meditation.
