Felicia Atkinson & Jefre Cantu Ledesma - Limpid as the Solitudes

"To be appreciated, «Limpid As The Solitudes» requires you to immerse yourself as if in a hot spring, letting the sounds float over you and alter your perceptions and memories."

Fair enough.

First up tonight it was Sunn O))), White 2 remastered and reissued on perfectly pressed vinyl.

Followed by Ellen Fullman & Okkyung Lee, The Air Around Her. A terrific sounding live recording, but the vinyl pressing is marred by a very slightly off-centred Side A, which you can't get away with with drone. Wonderful improvised performances.

It's great. I have the vinyl on order and need to check if there's a 24 bit release available. Speaking of 24 bit - that's just dropped to my hdd for the new amon tobin which I'm also waiting on the vinyl for. Given the crazy prices of vinyl now - richard devine's sort/lave cost just south of $70 - I'm not sure whether to keep buying it or just go full hq digital. Rhetorical question, really, as the ritual brings me joy.

Om ‎– Advaitic Songs. cut @ 45rpm over 2LP's - sounds great. they call this doom metal but to me it sounds more like a hard core Dead Can Dance.

Such a great album, still her best I reckon. I was lucky enough to grab a copy on record when it came out.

I'm getting to that point too. The new Bill Callahan (not drone related, sorry) is out and this is the longest I have delayed getting any of his albums in my life- $60 is just too much for a record. But I know eventually I will crack.

It's a magnificent album, no doubt. My favourite is Lleyfdu Ljosinu, only on digital due to its length. Hildur hasn't released a solo album for a few years, but she's been busy composing soundtracks.

I haven't bought the vinyl on principal. Too expensive even online. Southern Lord has gone too far into marketing gimmickry with their limited coloured pressings and high prices imo

Ariel Kalma - Nuits Blanches AU Studio 116

https://transversales.bandcamp.com/album/nuits-blanches-au-studio-116

This is not a reissue nor is it brand new music, but old tapes from the 70s rediscovered and released for the first time. Originally recorded when Ariel was working as a studio tech at the legendary GRM studio 116 and would make opportunistic recordings when another artist cancelled a booking. This album will make my eoy list.

Anyone familiar with this guy? Dr Val Stephen,an Australian doctor who dabbled in electronic music in the '60's

Fascinating,though I can't offer any knowledge of Dr Stephen.Maybe Trove would be useful (apologies if you've already tried this!).
