Tip of the Day
I'm tempted to just write, "lazy & hazy" to describe the new April Magazine LP, but just to let you know the albums variously indie rock, Americana, shoegaze & alt-pop influences are all reimagined through opiated ambient states. The recordings sound like early morning first takes after a heavy night as the band were waiting for the drummer to come back with the coffee & aspirin & had decided playing something was preferably to making small talk with a hangover. They also sound great.

Happy new year to the podcast crew, let's make 2024 a good one.

A kaleidoscopic, psychedelic, improvised ambient electronic epic like the debut LP from Greg Dallas & Jan Esbra. After a long friendship these two finally made it into the studio to explore the intersection of effect pedal disguised guitar & modern electronica with a handy piano thrown in the mix as well.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
A Few Thoughts on a Few Things:
Women in Ambient Music
After asking for suggestions for women ambient music producers in a Facebook group, I decide to write a blog post listing all the (65+) recommendations proferred, and a few thoughts on why ambient music is such a mail dominated space.
It's a new age of New Age
A brief essay on the history of New Age music from its 60's counter cultural roots to the mood playlists of today. I also have a pop at modern living, neo-liberalism & throw in an overly simplistic solution for good measure.
What is Slow Music?
Who are we to say? But here are a few suggestions anyway.
