New cd's

I've been listening to a couple excellent cd's the past few days & because they are on small record labels I figured I'd give them a big recommendation here.



The first is Loren Dent - Empires & Milk on Contract Killers Records - a very nice ambient recording. It combines ambient electronics, drones & some acoustic elements, for a nice dreamy listening experience. It's beautiful, floating music with enough grit & feedback to keep it from being too sweet.

The other disc is Bexar Bexar - Tropism on Own Records - another beautiful recording. This one also combines electronics & acoustic instruments, mostly acoustic guitar. The guitar here is more out front & the electronics & drones are background & coloring. This cd is not as purely ambient as the Loren Dent release. But it is just as beautiful & more melancholy. Tropism also uses some grit & feedback to keep things interesting. Info here...

Two wonderful recordings.
