rec: Labradford - Mia Media Naranja

from same label as SOTL (Kranky) and similar style although it sounds more western.

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.

Some recs

Brian Grainger- Eight Thousander

Paul Bradley - Chroma

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.

>>53873839
Seconding Labradford, especially their album fixed:context. The track "Wien" off that album is really great.

Pan•American did ambient far better than SoTL could have ever hoped to.

>>53873839
They were even signed to Kranky, how about that. Labradford is a solid choice as well, though.
>>
>>53874072
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.

>>53874145
I'm glad you like it!

>>53874161 hm not sure it can really be said that anyone does ambient FAR better than SOTL. I'm interested though. What album should I check out first?

BoC are pretty much sub-mu-core, probably one of the most universally liked artists on this board.
>>
>>53874217
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.

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.

Synth-based ambient, similiar to BoC but without drums. Good and little bit underrated i think

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.
