Right from the intro this tune sounds like a winner! And then, it gets better. ‘Tenerife’ maintains an underlying tension that perpetually builds with contrasting hazy vocals over the top. Le Thug are an ambient noise trio that hail from Scotland, download their debut EP ‘Ripping‘ at Bandcamp. The good folks over at FatCat Records [...]
‘Ghost Colored Halo’, the new release from ambient/noise vets Lovesliescrushing was recorded in one take with no overdubs. Impressive! The duo (Scott Cortez and Melissa Arpin-Duimstra) earlier announced via Facebook that this “sister ep” would be the precursor to a new album. ‘Ghost Colored Halo’ will be available from Projekt records on May 21. Lovesliescrushing – ‘Blemished [...]
Look at the artwork! Now press play. Its a perfect mix of watery atmospherics, submerged tones and otherworldly soundscapes. The aptly titled album ‘The Oceanic Tomes‘ is available now from Minneapolis studio project, A Place of Owls. Influenced by the work of Brian Eno and Rosetta, this is for fans of drone, post rock and abstract [...]
As far as free albums go, Helios‘ ‘Moiety’ is a no brainer (download here - donate if you can)! ‘Nothing It Can’ is a stunning ambient piece, largely instrumental with vocals as an instrument rather than a voice.

Another top shelf single from Blackbird Blackbird. ‘Tear‘ features on the forthcoming EP ‘Boracay Planet’ which was premiered @ Prefix Mag. Blackbird Blackbird is the work of San Francisco’s Mikey S. Maramag who has an incredible gift to manipulate samples and lush arrangements into sublime songs. Blackbird Blackbird‘s debut album ‘Summer Heart‘ was released last [...]
I was blown away by Glass Vaults debut EP when it made its way online last June. They sounded like seasoned pros from the very beginning. Glass Vaults may appeal to Sigur Ros fans but are far more ambient and in my opinion, reach emotional peaks without overstating themselves. Tomorrow indie label JUKBOXR will release [...]
Here’s a post rock band that hasn’t opted for a four paragraph song title – respect! These guys hail from Sydney’s west and have released their debut EP ‘No House’ via Bandcamp. If you like it progressive and ambient, its well worth a listen. Plus their drummer is incredible (both live and on record). Click [...]
