vedic ambient music

for one show every month on "deep tracks" i'll go deeply into a particular year of music, focusing on the most creative and long-lasting music from that year; on another show i'll play long, extended, improvised tracks that take the time to deeply explore their music and playing; on another show i'll explore the best of a particular genre or artist; and on another show i'll play creative ambient music for you to enjoy and transcend to--letting your awareness go deeper....

this week, enjoy vedic ambience...

New Breakbeats, Chillstep & Ambient Electronica

I've got a real chill playlist set up for tonight's edition of The After Hours. We'll start out with some beautiful jazz post-rock from the Serbian quartet EYOT and the amazing album they released last year: Similarity. After that we've got some new chilled-out electronica featuring three albums that just came out in the last month, plus three albums that slipped under my radar last year. Read more about the artists & albums below:

 

UK-based producer Kamal Manzar aka zarr. Last month he released his debut album: A Wandering Clarity, where he takes the listener on a beautifully introspective journey through some ambient and cinematic electronica.

 


 

Russian bassist and producer Anton aka LTF Last month he released his debut album: Light The Fuse, a throwback to the old school hip-hop production style of the 90's. Expect jazzy bass, funky horns and dope beats.

 

 

 

Oakland-based producer an-ten-nae. Earlier this week he released his second studio album: Transmissionswhere he returns with some more delicious chillstep filled with soulful vocals and worldly rhythms.

the mystical arcade fire soundtrack from "her" and other ambience

remember watching the joaquin phoenix movie "her," and feeling like there was something very subtle going on?.... like you were experiencing the loneliness, ambivalence, love, and longing of his character....they became really real. well, a larcade fireot of the emotional ambience from that movie came from the incidental music throughout, by arcade fire [left]. i was so impressed with the feel of it, that i'm featuring several tracks on this week's ambient show (by popular request i do at least one ambient show every month). it's worth checking out because it's not their lyrical indie-pop sound, but some delicate ambient ... feelings, is the best way to describe it.

you'll spend an hour getting very incidentally emotional on my show this week. other spacey but melodic artists: sarah mclachlan and delirium, murasca and duke b, and (also by popular request) lemon jelly's "his majesty, king raam." very trippy, very lovely.

melodic ambience from 2008

this week: time to space out.

goldfrapp

 

 

 

..........

 

tonight i play a continuous hour of ambient-like (yet very melodic) music from 2008. i'll include spacey tracks from paul mccartney's ambient band "firemen," washington dc's thievery corporation, germany's booka shade, the uk's (where so much great ambient and electronic music originates) goldfrapp (pictured), and coldplay, and an amazing performance and composition by nyc's (and nigeria's) tv on the radio. i'll even manage to make a lovely track by adele fit in.

space out, sing along...
