Adam/Kill the Zodiac is a very cool dude who’s been up here before. It’s probably my favourite ambient project. These are two new songs.

Chris Rehm – Salivary Stones

February 22, 2010

There’s a lot going on with this cassette release, and it’s all incredible. There’s an honesty here that flows through every genre that’s on this, and there’s no excess of anything. Well paced, well structured and just lovely.

Ólafur Arnalds – Variations of Static

December 28, 2009

Building upon our previous post of this Icelandic genius, here’s an EP. How is this guy only four, five years older than the two of us, and so successful? Insert masturbatory rant about how beautiful his pieces are, et cetera.

The Caution Children – Vacations

July 29, 2009

I don’t know whether to call this ‘full of contrasts’ or ‘all over the place’. I think the vocals don’t lay over the music that well but I can definitely appreciate what they are doing.

Bitcrush – Epilogue In Waves

May 29, 2009

15-1196562190-960lLately, I’ve been in the mood for easy listening. With that, here is an Ambient-esque blog entry. In a lot of places, you’ll read that this was a nice blend of your typical Post-Rock instrumentals, as well as the Electronic aspect. I agree.  Doing some research, I found out he has been in a couple Electronic acts. That would do it.

Erik Enocksson – With Its Dark Tail Curled ’round the Garage

May 25, 2009

Erik Enocksson is a Stockholm-based composer. He is also awesome as hell.

His stuff is hard to come by, as it is released under a label that specializes in limited releases. if you see anything by him – get it.

He did the soundtrack to one of the greatest *what am i doing with my life* movies of all times – find it. love it.

The last track on this album is a fleshed out version of one of the songs from the film, but with vocals. I dont know if it is better or not…

Enjoy.
