So it would seem that we have simliar music tastes, ambient-wise at least, so would you mind recommending me some things to check out? I haven't been able to find very much recently and I trust your judgment.
indeed! i’m not sure what you dig already, but i’ll guessing you’ll be familiar with things like tim hecker, fennesz, william basinski, SotL etc etc. so anyway, my mind always goes blank when people ask me about recommending things, but here are a few. lemme know if you want anymore/most of the things i’ve listed you already have.
ben frost - by the throat (essential)
the sight below - glider (it all falls apart just came out, too)
rafael anton irisarri - hopes & past desires 7” (same guy as ^)
loscil - endless falls
logreybeam - it’s all just another aspect of mannerism
aidan baker & tim hecker - fantasma parastasie
lähtö - shadows of what we were
deaf centre - pale ravine
greg haines - slumber tides
fjordne - the setting sun
black to comm - alphabet 1968
belong - october language (essential)
richard skelton - landings
xela - the dead sea
koen holtkamp - field rituals (half of mountains, also v. good!)
tomasz bednarczyk - let’s make better mistakes tomorrow
i’ve probably left a whole bunch out. the most recent fenn o’berg record is quite good. as is the oneohtrix point never. then there’s stuff like the field, and more kompakt style stuff (gas, etc.). i guess that is kind of a different direction though. hope that helps!
this is the second track from her record, florine. it is truly the prettiest/most devastating and ethereal thing i’ve heard in a while. imagine mashing kate bush with grouper or something, and you might be close to what this sounds like. it sounds HUGE. listen with headphones, preferably in the dark.
