"A Final Thought" // 36 // Special Places (Various Artists)
If you’re still not listening to 36 despite my profuse recommendations, ask yourself this:
WHY THE FUCK NOT
If you like Tim Hecker, you’ll probably like this too.
"Transmission Four: Crooked Hill" // Pye Corner Audio Transcription Service // Black Mill Tapes Vol. 2
Dear Lord, longest track/artist/album description ever. Worth it though, these guys are really cool. I hate going back to the old standbys when it comes to comparing artists, but they do have a very BoC-esque sound, just darker and more arrhythmic/droney here. Love the latter half and the abruptness of the ending.219 plays
Jurassic Park Theme - 1000% times slower
Love the film, love the soundtrack, love this. Just thought someone might be interested.

"Keep" // Nils Frahm // Felt
I guess I should upload something, huh? Saw this when it came out and completely forgot to listen to it, which I regretted because it’s bloody brilliant.
Minimal, modern classical with a good deal of piano and strings.281 plays
"Rogue Waves I" // Boy Friend // Egyptian Wrinkle
Digging this album quite a lot actually; it is dream pop, granted, and they do sound an awful lot like the Cocteau Twins at times, but it’s just a really cerebral and easy-going listening experience.
Definitely a 2012 album I’d recommend109 plays
"Zum Greifen Nah" // Bersarin Quartett // II
Orchestral chamber music with ambient and electronic influences. Despite this album feeling quite long and a little same-y, Bersarin Quartett do manage to keep it interesting with pulses of instrumentation.
Just listen.110 plays
"Where You End & I Begin" // Jefre-Cantu Ledesma // Love Is A Stream
It’s been a while since I posted some good old Noise, so here’s some Ledesma. From what I can tell, he’s one part of Yellow Swans, which explains my attraction to his work.
Really warm, richly detailed noise/ambient, great release.120 plays
"Spells" // Natural Snow Buildings // Beyond The Veil
So, what new ambient albums have come out this year that you’re all enjoying? Celer have already put out 3 rather good releases. 36 and Natural Snow Buildings have come out with some real corkers as well.160 plays
