Blind Cave Salamander ~ The Svalbard Suite / Ecker & Meulyzer ~ Carbon / Glåsbird ~ Svalbarð

Great minds think alike, or perhaps it’s just coincidence ~ but three albums about Svalbarð have been released in a short span of time, including two in a ten-day span.  Each occupies a different genre, and brings something unique to the table.

Emanuele Errante ~ This World

The cover to Emanuele Errante’s latest project risks— yet subverts— a hamfisted explanation of the record’s symbolic contents. Bristling, bare tree branches stick out above four rigid, brutalist structures, as if to tell us point-blank that our world, this world,

ACL 2018 ~ Top Ten Ambient

2018 was a particularly strong year for ambient music. We received over a thousand albums for consideration, in some weeks more than all other genres combined ~ and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  While composing this introduction, we
