  1. Yeah, Rock Bitch Mafia is right up there with Hicksville on the goa iconicity scale IMO. Here's hoping for a Conscious Pilot II...;~)
  2. Thank you sooo much for listing Matt Coldrick - Music For A Busy Head Vol. 2 in your upcoming album list. I bought it as soon as it came out. It is a worthy successor to Pan Electric's monumental Step Out release He doesn't do too well on quantity but his consistent quality more than makes up for it.
  3. New idea: Sell face masks decorated with Psybient.org sticker designs.
  4. Well THAT cost me some dough....;~P Money very well spent. Thanx Much for clueing me in to what I'd missed spotting this last month. You are indeed an invaluable resource, performing an essential service. PLEEEEZE keep it up.
  5. Much belated thanx for this. Looking forward to June installment. Best recent releases: Howard Givens & Craig Padilla - The Bodhi Mantra Simon Posford - Flux & Contemplation - Portrait Of An Artist In Isolation
  6. You were right about the pastels. The full color was so thick that I was having problems reading the print under some of them unless I highlighted it with my cursor. But there are no such issues with the pastels; I can easily read the underlying print unaided. Oh; except for the world fusion grey. You might consider paling it up a bit more.
  7. Thanxabunch; much appreciated, as always. The only real difference for me is that instead of buying releases once a week, I have to save up my money and buy a lot more once a month...;~)
  8. Kalya Scintilla - Gaian Code and Sundial Aeon - Hibernal Solstice were a nice way to end 2019. Awaiting the first 2020 new releases update. btw; I found out that Future Sound Of London - A Controlled Vista will get an eventual digital release on fsoldigital. Thomas Shrubsole - Tape Music will also get an eventual digital release on his Bandcamp site. At least they won't be CD or cassette only like Angelo Harmsworth - For Argand was.
  9. Yeah, great week, great month. And then there's this: https://touched.bandcamp.com/album/touched-by-silence-please-note-fsol-is-cd-only-boxes-will-ship-in-january All but the CD-only FSOL album are now digirally available for purchase there. Nine of them: Eight solos and a compilation. https://touched.bandcamp.com/music One helluva fine mass release. Too bad I couldn't afford the box set. That FSOL will be a collector's item.
  10. I know you must be tired after all those updates (I thank you for those - most useful), but is June 10-16 coming soon?
  11. Man, you're really moving fast on this! Color me impressed! Oh; don't forget to update Upcoming Releases too. But of course you don't need to do that for each week; a single cumulative update should suffice...;~) Good to see these updates back - and their author, too.
  12. I took your advice on the editing, and also updated the list, showing that I found one, added one that I had forgotten to add before, and mentioning that the purchased CD has arrived.
  13. Xoon - Nightfall https://www.discogs.com/Xoon-Nightfall/release/6445004 M-Sphere - Tread In https://www.discogs.com/M-Sphere-Tread-In/release/4244160 Edit: I now have this release. Tomonari Nozaki - Monochrome https://www.discogs.com/Tomonari-Nozaki-Monochrome/release/9916918 World Standard - Journal Standard https://www.discogs.com/World-Standard-Journal-Standard/release/10241835 Edit: I forgot to include this one before. Angelo Harmsworth - For Argand https://www.discogs.com/Angelo-Harmsworth-For-Argand/release/12066585 Norken - SA001 https://www.discogs.com/Norken-SA001/release/12800889 The first four are on CD, but very rare. I am seeking either the CD or the files. The fifth is on cassette and the sixth is on vinyl. I am seeking the files for those, as I lack a turntable or a cassette player. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. BTW: I recently was able to finally buy a CD of this rare gem: Masaya Kato - Coagulation https://www.discogs.com/Masaya-Kato-Coagulation/release/4544339 I am anxiously awaiting its arrival in the mail. Edit: it has arrived. What other rare, sold out and out of print releases are others here searching for, and which ones have they found? Let me know; I might want them too...;~) If this topic takes off I'll list more rarities that I've been lucky enough to find.
  14. Waiting for the next New Releases Update...or for Godot, whichever comes first...;~P Just kidding! Enjoy your trip. Really. But please don't forget about us tripsters back home on Psybient...;~) We need you to let us know what's new out there to check out and maybe buy.
  15. I'm a graveyard shift worker, so I have to sleep during the day. That means closed bedroom door, black paper on the windows, and music playing low to dampen out the sudden, harsh and discordant outside noises of people going about their day outside. It works best for me when the music is mostly in the middle ranges (not excessively bass or treble), flowing and melodic, and has a slow soft beat that gets my heartbeat and respiration to slow in sync and my brainwaves to seek the lower sleep oscillations. White noise is featureless, so it won't do those things for me. And music in midrange is the most calming and restful and relaxing for me - the sonic equivalent of stretching out in the summer woods under trees (our visual wavelength range is centered around green). Very high pitches would just make me excited or nervous, and subsonic bass is used in theaters during horror movies to induce feelings of fear and dread. I also have listened to Eguana during the day (meaning, for me, in the morning after work but not yet ready to sleep). IMO, it elegantly fits Brian Eno's definition of ambient: being interesting enough to attend to, but not so intrusive that it cannot be ignored..
