Latest Label Release
If you can't cycle to the top of a hill & watch the sun rising to clear the early morning mist from the damp Autumn landscape, then just hit play on the new Apta LP & bathe in its peculiarly British, slightly reserved sense of joy & positivity. . (streaming link - https://ditto.fm/20-apta)
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.
Drifting, Almost Falling Interview
This is the first in a series of interviews with other music reviewers, bloggers and online magazines that I follow with interest, in an effort to help spread awareness of the poor, unpaid/underpaid, overworked music obsessives shining light into the shadows of the music margins and who provide an essential alternative to the mainstream, largely big indie and major label obsessed media. Please say hello to Drifting, Almost Falling and his horizontal blog of delights.
