    Chad Lawson - Dark Conclusions: The Lore Variations -- more solo piano work, more gothic than minimalist this time, and with the playing not as muted as previous albums. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Kubuschnitt - The Cube -- excellent Berlin school album, originally released in 2000, long out of print, but now available on Bandcamp for 2 quid for the lossless download --Geoff

    Chad Lawson - Bach Interpreted: Piano Variations On Bach Chorales -- a bloke wot plays some solo piano interpretations of Bach's choral works. I would normally post this in the Classical Spinning thread, but here the piano is muted and sparse, so it's more like Harold Budd or Nils Frahm than Bach, and should appeal to the usual suspects here. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    What 'digital' have you bought today? 

    I wrote an app for Android that slurps the Squeezebox database and allows me to search by album, artist, etc and shows cover art, album info, etc. Kinda dodgy but has rescued me on many occasions. --Geoff

    Chad Lawson - The Chopin Variations -- some bloke wot mutes his piano and plays a couple of nocturnes, waltzes and mazurkas, one CD with violin and cello and one CD as solo piano. There's another album of Bach variations that looks innaresting. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    I think this was my first Klaus Schulze LP (Timewind would have been next). Still got it somewhere in the pile. Never heard the music before ... but knew that I would like it. Of course the cover was easy on the eye, too --Geoff

    Ascendant - Outlets Of The Sky -- a collection of singles, hanging together nicely, each track of which is mid-tempo, ethereal, kinda chill affair with some nice sound design. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff

    Steve Lawson - Behind Every Word -- more fretless bass frolics, with some guitar. I can imagine this getting played at SNA GTG's ... it's got that "hi-fi show off" kinda sound. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
