The New Age movement in the ’80s was fertile ground for ambient music particularly as healing and wellness tools. Whether it actually helped people or not is perhaps a question for another blog. They produced some aesthetically interesting music! This is a great example. Highly recommended!
Lawrence – Birds On The Playground is another fine release from the Dial label boss. We have been huge fans of Lawrence for a while. He produces extremely thoughtful, well-crafted music that always feels fresh. Highly recommended.
A magical new record from Floating Points and Pharoah Sanders. It takes the listener on one hell of a journey. Grab yourself a cup of tea, sit down and listen to this from start to finish. Highly recommended!
Angel Tears in Sunlight by Pauline Anna Strom is a beautiful record. We have only recently discovered the work of this great artist who sadly passed away last year. An interesting figure in electronic music and a stunning back catalogue. Out through the ever amazing RVNG Intl.
Landscape House, FORM / Kouichi Kimura Architects, Shiga, Japan, 2021.
The new G.S Schray is A OK. The Changing Account is a fantastic 3rd record from the Last Resort luminary. Highly recommended!
Another missed 2020 record that we have on high rotation at the moment. Lawrence – Music For Plants. A beautiful set of 2 long-form drones. Stunning and highly recommended!
The Endless Life Cycle of Japanese City Pop by Cat Zheng is a great summary of the Japanese City Pop phenomenon and the broader ‘Youtube-core’ muzak industry that has sprung up on the platform. Interesting read.
A lovely new record from Andrew Tuttle and friends the Padang Food Tigers. Serene and uplifting in these COVID times. Well worth a listen!
We missed this little gem last year. Care Tracts by Matthewdavid’s Mindflight. On high rotation at the moment and wholeheartedly recommend!
