Alex Kozobolis ~ Weightless

With Weightless, Alex Kozobolis has managed to do something we thought impossible: to combine original tracks and remixes in such a way as to offer a complete album that never betrays its origins.  For this we can credit the four remixers, who provide

ACL 2016: Top Ten Ambient

There will always be hard days.  We will always need to be soothed.  But there is also great beauty in the world, which is where this genre makes a (quiet) impact.  The irony: some of this year’s ambient albums get loud.   Perhaps
