To be honest, I don't know what genre these albums are. They are great, though. The band (guy?) is Calm, and their two albums, Blue Planet and Silver Moon, seem to travel through the lands, constantly changing genres as well as a feel for location. I'm thinking smooth jazz mixed with a Brazilian vibe mixed with Tortoise mixed with Dead Can Dance and a hint of Fela Cuti (maybe with a little bit of Helios too). Everyone should check this out. Unfortunately, this is only a giant mp3, which I think is what Calm intended. Either way, if you have an hour and need background music that will leave you perplexed, give this a taste.

If anyone has this/could find it with the tracks split up, could you please send it this way? That would make this a lot more enjoyable.

I didn't see this anywhere in the thread, so I apologize if this is a double post.

Stars of the Lid - Carte de Visite

Download this EP I made. The songs are pretty close to where they should be. I colaborated with Brian Wilson and Thom Yorke and then we all fucked in my basement apartment. Thom has a really big dick suprisingly, and Brian Wilson cried the whole time, yelling "These moans are not in perfect harmonic unison". Anyway, it sounds like what you would imagine something from that situation sounds like.

There's a new Susumu Yokota floating around out there, too. I haven't listened to either. Someone sell me on on one/both.

The Yokota is fucking lovely. It's lush as fuck, has hints of 'Cherry Blossom Girl' by Air and Vespertine running all through it, but mixed with slightly odd soft-goth like Black Tape for a Blue Girl or something.

It's almost improved by how uncool it is.

Bumping this thread to agree.

New Tim Hecker y'all is really good. That second last song with the subtle almost dance-y beat? Amazing.

I've bumped this thread a couple of times now in the past few weeks just out of habit. No replies? That's normally fine but I guess I just miss this thread being active. I've probably listened to 75% of the music posted in this thread over the years so even though it was a pretty standard music message board discussion form thread it's just weird because I can remember reading it in my old apartment, the one I lived in after that, at my parents house, at my new place, at work, at school, etc. And for a short while this was a popular thread that seemed to get people from all across the board into music that (it sometimes seemed like) they wouldn't normally listen to.

 

I realize that the lack of posts in this thread is directly related to the troubles that the board has had as a whole. But I wonder if more people would read it if it were called "post your favorite relaxing music here" or something. Maybe everyone started to think this thread was only for experimental electronic music, which it shouldn't necessarily be at all.

 

 

I like this a lot.

Nah, 'relaxing music' makes it sound like the sort of thing that gets played in lifts or at shit dinner parties. Like some awful 90s acid jazz rubbish. Ambient is what it is. But seriously, a Radiohead album could come out tomorrow and it would struggle to make two pages on here, such is the dearth of activity. I have made similar attempts to bump the Lonely End of the Dancefloor thread to little or no avail. If we can't get discussion for massive albums no way are we going to get pages on pages on what were always niche genres on here.

Plus most of the ambient folks have long since jumped ship, just going back a page but I haven't seen the likes of Cinnamon P, throughsilver, Bruegel, hummingbird, cerebal headtrip, kuno, Sonic Alligator, Ogawa, newspeak, and, of course, avec in months, some of them from even before the collapse of the board.

Still loving the Eluvium release from this year and the Julianna Barwick album just arrived a few days ago on vinyl and it is amazing. It is really great.
