  1. This came out of nowhere. I really like Eguana, but his collaboration album with Qeight The Book of Changes is just ethereally beautiful.🥰 https://cosmicleaf.bandcamp.com/album/the-book-of-changes
  2. It's been said before, social media is where the discussion is. I don't have any so I too wish there were more activity here. Any attempt at dialogue from my part has been met with minimal response, always from the usual suspects. I do check out Gordon's lists regularly, but I don't want to keep starting threads where responses can be counted on one hand of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, or keep posting on the listening now thread on my own.
  3. There are always releases I find interesting that I'm not aware of - and I'm not even talking about unknown artists. How do you do it? 👍
  4. Had a listen to The Structure of Emotions, very well done. I'm not the biggest fan of droney ambient (though there are some times when it's just what I need) and this style of multidimensional ambient is much more to my liking.
  5. AstroPilot has quite a few ambient albums. Matt Hillier goes back and forth with his multitude of aliases. Eguana releases all kinds of downtempo, psychill and ambient music. There's also Carbon Based Lifeforms' Twentythree and VLA, Bluetech's Dreaming into Being and Liquid Geometries, Germind's Ambient Waves and Bathyscaphe, I.M.D.'s Hertz 01 and 02 EPs, some Jairamji releases I haven't checked out yet, Kyoto's Scapes & Spheres and Squares & Triangles, Lauge's Latitudes, Ovnimoon's alter ego OM and some Rising Galaxy releases I've browsed but didn't grab my attention so I can't remember. I don't know if that counts, but Seb Taylor's Kaya Project have released two Ambient Mixes and KP's last album Body.Mind.Soul. includes an ambient mix, and Hibernation have released Ambient Re-Works 01. Not all of these are particularly new but there you go, that's all I'm aware of. Hope this is some of what you're looking for.
  6. Yeah DP's Blue is great! I wasn't the biggest fan of MS's drone stuff, but I do enjoy his more uptempo albums.
  7. Thanks for the heads up for the Mystical Sun album Salamantis, it's been a while since I heard from him. Sea Biscuit is a very good album too.
  8. Depends what you're looking for. 2008's Back to Earth and their latest, 2017's Last Ship to Paradise, are downtempo and amazing imo. 2000's Crash & Burn! and 2001's In the Nude! are pretty eclectic, with all kinds of weird stuff, some loungy and accessible elements there, with ES's touch of course. 2007's De-Classified is a return to their techno roots with one of my favourite tracks of theirs, Tractor Beam, which is drum'n'bassy btw. Finally, 2016's double Dead Planet is split in half, uptempo and downtempo, and is simultaneously a kind of recap and an experiment. The downtempo side is very weird. YouTube is your friend. It's worth mentioning that SotG was the hardest album to get into for me too, and is still my least favourite.
  9. Since you mentioned it, a very large chunk of Eat Static's work. But you probably already know that. 🙄
  10. Thank you, always useful 🙂
  11. Proxeeus' album is fantastic, just the right balance between light and darkness.
  12. I really enjoy all the installments of Avatar Records' Café... series. Like I said to an online friend, they are my go to proper relaxation series: not too deep, not to clubby, with chilled, unintrusive, soft beats. They've released three so far this year, Café Africa, Café Shanghai and Café Bhutan, all great.
  13. Still here in case you were wondering, still appreciating your work 🙂 Been a bit out of the loop, only occasionally checking downtempo albums, but am getting more into it again. Your lists are always helpful Gordon. Thank you and keep up the good work. I signed up here for some discussions but since that's done on social media now, no such luck here , hence the absence of comments.🙁
  14. The first two tunes on this one are fantastic.
  15. With all this work you've put in I'm starting to doubt it took you less than the weekly updates It might be useful to copy-paste the colour codes each month, or make them somehow readily available without having to search this topic each time.
  16. I think I'm not the only one to be thankful for your work Gordon. I'd missed some releases I'm interested in, but finally became aware of them thanks to this list.
  17. I'm listening to Easily Embarrassed's EE4 as I'm typing this. I was looking at the artwork for that album a bit more carefully and noticed the girl with purple hair under 'Wanted' on the cover of the semi-mixed version. She seems to have first appeared, albeit in the shadows, on the Tales of the Coin Spinner back cover and long strip and then on the Different Dimensions EP, in all cases along with an apparently live jester toy. Is anyone aware of a continuing story behind these three releases? BTW they seem to have abandoned this project and focused on another one instead, Retro Brothers http://www.retro-brothers.com/
  18. This guy is outside time! I like the compilation this comes from but my favourite is the second installment.
  19. It was weird to do. I'm more of an albums person and if I go for individual tracks they aren't necessarily the same ones each time. Hope you like what you hear
  20. I was aware - and really liked - Kris Kylven's goa trance music with UX and Syb Unity Nettwerk, but not Eon Project, one of his downtempo "bands". Listening to their Brain Filter album; I'm really liking it, very varied in style but always interesting https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mXLHhSkYlJvlP42EfULbalvQzhWTlezNc
  21. OK, here comes an attempt: Shpongle - Vapour Rumours Entheogenic - Ground Luminosity Banco de Gaia - Last Train to Lhasa Crystal Vibe - Shift of the Ages Children of the Bong - The Veil... Eat Static - Forgotten Rites Bluetech - Prayers for Rain (Dub Mix) E-Mantra - Gesthemane Doof - Try Hallucinogen in Dub - Angelic Particles Ott - Jack's Cheese and Bread Snack Afro Celt Sound System - Riding the Waves Younger Brother - Happy Pills Celtic Cross - Swazz Ozric Tentacles - Crackerblocks (if I had to chose only one) Androcell - Desert Nomad Timeshard - Cosmic Carrot (Peel Sessions version) Asura - The Savers That'll do. Tomorrow it could be different.
  22. Better late than never. Blisswave's EP is absolutely amazing! Best artist release to come from Melusine that I've heard.
  23. Been checking out some of Greg Hunter's works recently and he sounds pretty organic. Kaya Project too. Neither of them is new though. Saw the Vlastur live band show last year (I think) and they were mostly organic, but I wasn't too impressed. What happened to The Peaking Goddess Collective? Did they ever release anything after Organika?
  24. Impossible task. I really can't begin to think about it. It was hard enough when we did the albums list, and my tastes weren't even as varied as they are today. But I like most of the tunes you mentioned. Special shout out to the MWNN and COTB tracks.
  25. Thanks for the update Gordon. The Astronaut Ape, Dimmat, and Stereomantra releases are all good; the Eguana album is very pleasant though not particularly psychedelic and the Pitch Black album was a great surprise as, although I've never been a huge fan, I really enjoyed it.
