Ambient Index Vol. 3

Third index here includes a mix of space ambient, dark ambient and modern classical (for the rmost part). Dark ambient isn't something I typically dig on but the albums I picked were too good rto pass up.
1Algol
Follow The Cepheid Light


Whollee shit. Spelled _Algol_, an artist residing in the barren wastes of Siberia. He's obsessed with space ambient and throws a darker, more brooding side to it. Forging ambient that is cold as his soul and hard as the Iron Curtain should come as second nature to this commie pinco. I get awed listening to this album sober. Listening to it stoned/drunk would probably have me shooting machine gun dick gasms through my pants like fucking light sabers. Album can be downloaded for free here: http://www.last.fm/music/_Algol_/Follow+the+Cepheid+Light
2Proton Kinoun
Apeiron


Spaced out psybient recced to me by AnotherBrick. It falls in a similar vein to Astropilot but adds trance-like beats into the mix, placing urgency on songs that would typically float along. Album is hot and can be downloaded for free here: http://www.last.fm/music/Proton+Kinoun/Apeiron
3Lost In Hildurness
Mount A


I had Hildur Gudnadottir on my first ambient list because she's amazing. She's on this list because she doesn't cease to amaze. Cello isn't a very cheerful sounding instrument. It is much better at creating atmospheres foreboding and sinister. This album is no exception. Not quite as dark as "Without Sinking" but just as beautiful.
4Gas
Pop


An album that seems to have gone completely unnoticed even after earning a spot on Sputnik's Top 100 Of The Decade list. Bedroom pop-style ambient that loops nature-based samples over top each other and is one of the more lulling albums you'll find if you need sound to help you sleep.
5Chihei Hatakeyama
The River


Almost drone-like in it's tendencies. A Japanese dude making pretty-sounding electro-ambient who would have thought. Sounds heavenly(?), shit description.
6Blackfilm
Blackfilm


Cinematic dark ambient. Not really sure how to describe this. Lots of creepy samples, down-tempo beats. A number of good horror/thriller films could use this album as a template. Listen to Stalingrad off myspace if you want a sample: http://www.myspace.com/blackfilmmusic
7 Teargas & Plateglass
Black Triage


Ok this album is deep. Evil ambient trip-hop based on themes of genocide and mass-murder.
8Olafur Arnalds
...And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness


Crysis wrote a review for this album that will give you a good taste of what it sounds like. An artist working on perfecting the form of symphonic modern classical.
9Nils Frahm
The Bells


The guy who gave Nils classical training in piano was tutored by none other than Tchaikovsky himself. Classical piano, recorded within a gothic cathedral... baller. Pitchfork gave this a super shitty rating and described it as being tedious and muffled. Fuck you.
