Another new release from Wings Of An Angel, spinning it now:

 

a0685975811_16.jpg

 

Wings Of An Angel - Idealize The Solitary Lifestyle -- a bit more avante-garde, at least the first track. "Name Your Price" lossless download from Bandcamp.

 

1. You Have Changed For The Worse, Watered Your Dreams Down, You Have Betrayed The Solitary Lifestyle Which Was Given To Us By Destiny 16:45

2. Endless Visions Of Cosmic Funeral Grounds, As Fathomless Rivers Of Withered Dreams, Nurture The Spirit Of Dark Genius, Beyond The Reach Of Years 21:00

3. It's Not Inconceivable That In One Of These Abandoned Urban Buildings, Facing The Sill Which Opens Only In The Most Remote Reserves Of The Night, Sits A Brokenhearted Poet, Staring At The Sadly Blurred Eyes Of The Vast Crowd Passing Nonchalantly In The Streets Of The City, Ignoring His Existence 24:46

4. Amidst This Involuntary Desert We Call Our Home Planet, There Was, For A Tiny Moment, A Young Lady Which Sang Like An Angel In A Landscape Of Strange Light, And Her Unfamiliar Beauty, Delicate And Pure Like Honey, Soothed The Emotional Desolation In My Heart 16:35

5. An Infinite Loop May Fade Unto Naught, But Dead End Roads Never End... Black Cats Pray As They Walk On The Track, Towards Remarkable Nothingness 38:04

Nightwind - The Sound Of Silence -- so the artist name sounds like a flatulent condition (which is probably why it got changed to NightSkies later) but this release is all processed guitar and sounds not unlike some Frippertronics. "Name Yer Price" download at Bandcamp.

Wings Of An Angel - I Am A Heaven And A Controversial Authority On One World (Euphoric Ambient Anthology) -- a recent anthology from the prolific artist Wings Of An Angel, this is a generous 21 track collection of "ethereal and euphoric ambient hits", ranging in style from processed piano to drone. Some lovely pieces on here. A "Name Your Price" download on Bandcamp.

Off Land - (Drone Variations) Volume 1 & (Drone Variations) Vol. 2 -- a new artist to me, worth checking out some more. These are reworkings of tracks from previous albums. "Name Yer Price" lossless downloads from Bandcamp.

Geoff, Off Land gets bonus points for the band name alone.

 

(I continue to follow your recommendations with interest.)

A reference to On Land, I assume.

 

Here's one I discovered just now:

 

a3489062480_16.jpg

 

Jamie McMenamy - Cloud Guitar -- described as "Solo electric/synthesized guitar". As usual, a "Name Your Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. Plenty of other albums available from this bloke that are worth checking out.

 

1.   Cloud Guitar 9 in E Mixolydian 11:22

2.   Cloud Guitar 9 in G Major 07:49

3.   Cloud Guitar 9 in B Dorian 09:49

4.   Cloud Guitar 9 in D Minor 18:01

5.   Cloud Guitar 2 in E 24:12

6.   Cloud 6 in G Major 12:56

7.   Ambient 7 in B Minor 20:12

8.   Ambient 7 in E Minor 14:27

Jamie McMenamy - Lap Steel - Live 5.28.2017 -- spinning another album from this bloke, this time it's a live recording, essentially a drone with processed lap steel guitar over the top. Not the sparse sound that some may expect (like the Paris Texas soundtrack) but pretty good all the same. "Name Yer Price" lossless download at Bandcamp.

Definitely need to check out the rest of that series, that album is pretty damn good.
 
I really only know him from a few remix songs, probably should also check out his other work.


Plotkin originates from the weirdo late eighties/nineties grind band OLD Old Lady Drivers. He's done a lot of other stuff, notably the drone/hardcore supergroup Khanate with O'Malley of Sunn o))). He mostly does mastering for vinyl cuts nowadays. Plotkins solo output is really interesting, mostly guitar and computer drone and ambient, a fair bit of it is harsh sounding but always a compelling listen.

      Item: EOI: Lamm m1.2 monoblock amplifiers
      Location: Canberra
      Price: $11500 ono, non-inclusive of shipping
      Item Condition: Very good
      Reason for selling:  Moved on to other amplifiers.............
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: replaced valves with Russian equivalent 6n1p23 which are much better than 6922s
       
      In terms of complete disclosure, one lamm, had a problem with the delay switch, which is normally 45 seconds, and was taking a few minutes to turn on, I sent to Kimil electronics in Sydney, the Lamm nominated repairer, and this was fixed, without issue since
      i bought these from a SNA guy in Sydney 18 months ago, in exchange for Lamm m2.2s, and they are the correct Voltage for Australia. They were checked and rebiased by Chris at Kimil, prior to my purchase, bias is currently to Lamm specifications.
       
      I have the wooden boxes, and manual for these, I can supply 6922s, if purchaser prefers. The shipping to say Sydney is about 60 dollars each, these things are very heavy, dimensions and weight shipped can be supplied to prospective purchasers. The details are on the Lamm website I believe.
      please remember that despite large size these are 100 watts class A into 4 or 8 ohms, and roughly double AB.

      Item: Vincent SP20 Anniversary Edition Hybrid power amp.
      Location:Gold Coast Qld
      Price: $1250     paid $1730  RRP $3499
      Item Condition: 9/10 like new approx 8months old
      Reason for selling: going all valve
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only
      Extra Info:   Bought this amp on speculation when Eastwood Hifi were clearing stock at very reduced prices due to a change in distributor. 
                What piqued my interest in this model, SP20, was the combination of valve input stage  and solid state output.
                  I have enjoyed this hybrid valve amp so much I have to decided to give all valve a go.
                 This amp has great bass weight and definition allied to a top end that is not harsh but has that beautiful valve airiness. But most importantly, this amp brings out the emotion in music.
                   The first 10 watts are class A with all that brings but still retains composure at loud volume levels.
                    Also included are various input valves including original russian, RCA (nos) and Amperex.
                       Eastwood Hifi assured me any warranty claims would be fully covered by the new distributor. 
                       I have original shipping cartons and receipt. Buyer pays for shipping.
                       Only to happy to answer any questions. 
                        Thanks for looking.
      Regards Paul
