A great week for incoming ASIP post. It all seemed to hit at once and I’m now spending the weekend playing catch-up on ambient bliss. So, this ‘Passing by’ post is dedicated to some recent purchases we should all be digging deep for.
Loscil – Coast/Range/Arc, on Glacial Movements
Anything by Scott is always quickly snapped up, especially a release on Glacial Movements. As expected given the label, this release is a lot more textured and atmospheric than usual. One for the ambient purists. Available on Glacial Movements / Boomkat.
bvdub – Songs For A Friend I Left Behind, on Distant Noise
This is probably my favourite bvdub releases to date. Big shout I know. But this record is Brock stripped down to his core. As the title suggests, there’s something in here pulling at the heart strings, and as expected, Brock rips them out. Available on Distant Noise.
ASC + bvdub – Symbol #2, on Auxiliary
bvdub on vinyl. Oh yes. White Vinyl at that. Not only did I never expect these two to produce together but to get it on vinyl is an absolute treasure and these guys’ talents are complimentary to say the least. You can read more about it here, when I first heard about the release. Available at Boomkat.
Marsen Jules – Nostalgia, on Oktaf.
The king of pop ambient himself, and his latest release is another instrumental ambient gem. Sincere, and melancholic, Martin knows how to combine delicate strings and engrossing atmospheres. Available on Bandcamp or Boomkat.
Loscil – Stave Peak
bvdub – Instead I Left You
ASC & bvdub – Symbol 2.4
Marsen Jules – Nostalgia.
