I have a weird relationship with this album. I played it while sitting in my car at 3am on new years while my friend hooked up with a girl he picked up at the club (I was the DD). His condoms were expired so he ended up getting chlamydia and can't have kids now. Can't listen without associating it with that

Phenomenal album. This is actually one of my top 3 albums of all time. Severely underrated.

I don't normally pimp my own stuff, but I released my first halfway-decent ambient track and I figured it was relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpdqZLd70_w Thought I'd see what you guys think.

Of the choices posted here so far, I'd have to say Narkopop is my favorite. I really haven't been listening to much new ambient this year, I've been focusing on a lot of old favorites, especially Stars of the Lid and (if you count them) Hammock. Speaking of Hammock, they have a new one coming out I think on the 25th.

My AOTYAY

Anyone have any recs for more lush ambient, preferably with pianos?
>>
>>74521106
from what I remember, I thought this was a bit underwhelming. I have to check it out again

I was really hoping that the new william basinski would be good but it was one of his worst releases imo

so far, my favorite ambient album would have to be jacaszek's kwiaty.
>>
>>74522888
I just googled this and it seems like this was released in 2014.

but holy shit, now that's a name I haven't heard in years and honestly a name I wouldn't have remembered if I didn't see this post. I loved the hell out of "songs by the tumbled sea." listening to this now.

also, check out my album. contrapaasso.bandcamp.com. klexos is also on spotify.

These are my AOTYs so far. Pretty much all of them are ambient, maybe except emptyset.

I don't post this album to much since I don't want to shill it, but it's one of my only 10/10's. Lots of analogue synth, some guest features including Thom Yorke, Bibio, and Linda Perhacs.

Mark Pritchard - Under the Sun, for anyone curious

>>74523085
Nice picks, saved for later. What would you choose between Tereza, Terminus Drift, and Kwiaty?
>>74523124
Also a good pick. I'm reminded of Plinth - Music for Small Lighthouses even when they aren't related, besides the comfiness

Kwiaty > Terminus > Tereza.
Tereza is definitely the worst of the three. It has some very unique sounds but there are like two tracks (second track in particular) that go for that very disjointed and random-sounding Love Streams-like melody thing (Bijie Dream comes to mind) and they just don't work that well imo, Hecker did it much better. But other than that its a good and varied refreshing album.
Terminus is a weird one, but it doesn't have any misteps I think. And Kwiaty is just a pleasure to listen to, just like his previous one, Glimmer. Jacaszek should be much more appreciated than he is.
>>
Be honest
is anyone better than Tim Hecker?
I've searched long and hard and nothing comes close
>>
>>74523771
vladislav delay
>>
>>74523771
Been searching for three years and the answer is a clear no. Hecker is the best at the thing he does.
There are other approaches to ambient music than his though (but his is my favorite one).
>>
>>74523783
listening to Anima
this is pretty cool
doesn't make me feel like i'm falling backwards into an abyss like Tim does, but it has more melodic stimulation which is nice
>>
>>74523771
For his particular style, nothing else comes close that I've heard. Feels a bit restrictive to call what he does ambient though, and as mentioned, there are other styles that people do just as well.
