    I've had to do some ass-numbingly long drives lately as we move to WA. Weighing in at 4 hours, this has been an effective companion.

    This is super minimal (and slightly creepy) drone that I find beautiful. Ideal for relaxing or meditating, but obviously not critical listening.

    Might be a repost in this thread, but after spending the better part of an evening coming back to this album, I feel I can justifiably state this is a magnum opus:



    Either way, cheers and enjoy a couple hours of bliss!

    Not sure if y'all know Brian Leeds work as Huerco S. His better known For Those Who Have Never is more on the ambient tip and it's excellent, but his debut, Colonial Patterns, was my point of entry and is more diverse and mashed up. There's mangled techno next to pastoral Twin Peaks passages and just tons of sand in the oyster.

    Stars of the Lid are a funny one for me. I don't dislike them, but given my love of drone and ambient and the fact that their work is widely viewed as being amongst the most essential in the genre it seems like I should like it more than I do. I also did not get on with the first A Winged Victory for the Sullen album, so I thought it was maybe an aversion to Adam Wiltzie, but then really enjoyed Invisible Cities so go figure.

    Yeah Brian Leeds stuff as Huerco S is superb - I also started with Colonial Patterns and loved that immediately. For Those of You Who Have Never... got a lot more positive exposure, but I liked it less to begin with. However, it was one of those albums that just kept drawing me back for some inexplicable reason and eventually it clicked. Still think I may slightly prefer Colonial Patterns, but they are different enough that they are not substitutes.

    Also check out his stuff as Pendant if you haven't already - Make me Know you Sweet is excellent (lossless available on Bandcamp). Also primarily ambient like For Those of You... but darker and more trippy.

    Probably not new to big fans of these genres, but I have been listening to a lot of Abul Mogard (Circular Forms and In Immobile Air), Bvdub (Ten Times the World Lied), Rafael Anton Irisarri (Peripeteia and Solastalgia) and Hotel Neon (Moments and Vanishing Forms) recently. Also Alva Noto, but suggesting an entry point there is difficult.

    Edit: implicit likes for both of your posts BTW since it seems Randos can no longer give likes since the update...

    Mogard's stuff is really cool. If I had to pick one, I'd go with his Works compilation.
