    by Jonny Nash
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    Lime Lime
    Brian Eno was quoted recently as saying "the path of least resistance for anyone with a load of sound - making tools is to keep making more sounds. The path of discipline is to say: let's see how few we can get away with."

    That's certainly some excellent advice for anyone making ambient music, and "Eden" is an excellent example of that principle being put into practice. Languid, textural phrases on piano and sustained electric guitar are given vast amounts of space in which to breathe, while minimal use of percussion, bass, synthesizer washes and found sound provide additional color and depth.

    Johnny Nash's music largely bypasses the BPM and loop-based techniques of so much ambient music since the 90s, in favor of returning to the more relaxed, loose, breathe and release vibe of first-wave ambient artists. The Budd/Guthrie influences from his first two albums are still there, but overall "Eden" has more of a fourth world feel to it, recalling the works of John Hassell, O Yuki Conjugate, and Another Fine Day.

    "He's dreaming now," said Tweedledee, "and what do you think he's dreaming about?"

    Alice said, "nobody can guess that."

    "Why, about you!" Tweedledee exclaimed, clapping his hands triumphantly. "And if he left off dreaming about you, where do you suppose you'd be?"

    "Where I am now, of course," said Alice.

    "Not you!" Tweedledee retorted contemptuously. "You'd be nowhere. Why, you're only a kind of thing in his dream!"
  13. Halt And Catch Fire (Original Television Series Soundtrack)
    by Paul Haslinger
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    It Speaks It Speaks
    I was watching Halt and Catch Fire -- definitely the most underrated series on TV -- and smiled every time the soundtrack came bleeping into the forefront. "Man, this guy's good," I thought. "This sounds exactly like '80s Tangerine Dream." Well, as it turns out, the soundtrack is actually by a former Tangerine Dream member, Paul Haslinger. A lot of this sounds like the period just before he joined the band however, and is very close to one of their best ever soundtracks, "Risky Business". This is like TD at their melodic pulsating sequencer best, without any of the over-the-top solos.

    Nice music for lying on the grass & watching clouds float by...

    If your ambient tastes run more towards "Evening Star", you won't be disappointed.
  15. All Of It Was Mine
    by The Weather Station
    favorite track 00:00/00:00
    If I've Been Fooled If I've Been Fooled
    I'm always checking out the new folk music appearing on Bandcamp, but I must admit, I don't buy that much of it. For better or for worse, the new stuff always bumps up against the Pink Moon test. That is, I could spend the next 30 minutes of my time just listening to Nick Drake again instead. I always find myself wondering: Will this new album reach me with the same depth of emotion? Will it gradually reveal more and more, and bring me back to listen to it dozens, hundreds of times? Will it create a sonic identity that is entirely its own, a place to be?

    In the case of The Weather Station, the answer is yes, yes, yes! This music manages that illusion of complicity, that it's just you and them sharing this moment, and the rest of the world be damned. 20 listens in, and I'm still discovering its secrets. This one's a keeper.

    The most floating Sinepearl yet... warm and shimmering. Reminds me very much of Tetsu Inoue's work on Fax.

    If somebody played this for me and said it was bootleg Tangerine Dream from 1977, I would totally believe it. It's one thing to have all the gear and get that old school Berlin sound, but it takes a special skill to keep it flowing and shifting and morphing for 15 or 20 minutes. This sh-t' is really in the zone.

    Prairie ambience so lonesome you can almost hear the buzzards circling.... the movie's pretty good too, if you ever wonderd what happened to Peter Fonda after "Easy Rider".
  27. Wizards

    featured track 00:00/00:00
    Focusing Within Focusing Within
    I've always loved the music of Terry Riley, but one album in particular -- the live recording Persian Surgery Dervishes, from 1972 -- had this smoky, spellbinding vibe that was utterly unique, even Riley himself never made another album which captured that same sound as well.

    Well, here's J.D. Emmanuel, who also clearly loved that sound, with a deep, hypnotic album -- from 1982! -- that's all meditative, muted modal keyboard improv over pulsing, shifting loops. It goes deep down the rabbit-hole uncovered by Riley's late-night explorations... and is just as good. Burn some incense and let this sound wash over you.

    Pulsating, hypnotic sequencer music at its best. Arjen makes a lot of music in this style, but Sonic Identity is just fantastic from beginning to end.

    Robin Guthrie is clearly a reference point, and reverb junkies will love this. But you can also hear echoes of Durutti Column, Manuel Gottsching, Jeff Pearce ... If clean, crystalline guitar shimmering in a haze of reverb is what you crave, Exit Strategies has got you covered.
