Ambience

A bunch of ambience
1 Troum and All Sides
Shut?/td>


Dark ambient from two german masterminds. For fans of synth buildups and climaxes and brooding basslines.
2 Stars of the Lid
...And Their Refinement of the Decline


Several hours of reverb-laden drone music with simple climaxes and pretty melodies that are sure to satisfy. Since I'm not mentioning any band twice on this list I'm just going to rec you their other albums here, because they're all superb. Especially their last two besides this one.
3Aghast (Norway)
Hexerei im Zwielicht der Finsternis


Ritual Ambient from some crazy chicks in Norway. Impressive shit. Imagine walking through a forest and having the soundtrack from some messed up norwegian girls coming at you like WOAH
4 Ain Soph
Kshatriya


Largely industrialized dark ambient/neofolk from Italy.
5Wraiths
Plaguebearer


Evil. Dissonant. But beautfiful and unobtrusive in a twisted way. The industrialism will put you into a stupor and a sleep and the rest will haunt your dreams. Forever. Noisy ambient-ish. Not for the faint of heart.
6 Nurse With Wound
Soliloquy for Lilith


Dark ambient from some firecrotch Brit/Irishman with piss teeth. Experimental in the way that it crosses over a bunch of genres but still feels very ambient.
7Lustmord
The Place Where the Black Stars Hang


Dark ambient superheroes with a knack for chilling atmospheres and drones and electronics and a weird foresty feel.
8Darkspace
Dark Space I


Dark ambient
9 Windy and Carl
Drawing of Sound


Guitars and space and vocals and more. Space rocky. Like. Floating on mars.
10Natural Snow Buildings
The Dance of the Moon and the Sun


Drone. Takes cues from psybient.
11 Taj Mahal Travellers
July 15, 1972


Drone-y experimental noise-ish. Along that early seventies, late-sixties line of art kids making organic noise.
12Birchville Cat Motel
Beautiful Speck Triumph


More drone and experimental too! RIYL: Couldwinarabbit experimentation but it's one of the few instances where he's right.
13 Emeralds
Allegory of Allergies


Drone-electronic. P4k approved. Feels like a jungle out here because of the odd bass and electronic effects.
14 Double Leopards
Halve Maen


Drone/soft noise
15Death Ambient
Death Ambient


Dark ambient from Tzadik. Priti experimental. Fred Firth and Ikue Mori are here so that should reveal how experimental it is. Almost jazzy but vary grim darkk
16Klaus Schulze
Mirage


Progressive Electronic, I guess. A lot of German subgenres I don't care about went into this but it's amazing nevertheless. Something about "Berlin School" apparently. I don't know. Ask Dev. he might. Do you like the beats?
17 Gas
K?sforst


Electronic Ambient, Minimal Electro
18 The Third Eye Foundation
Semtex


Illbient (imagine a really dubby, urban style of ambient. Like walking through the hood and oh its ambient)
19Scorn
Zander


Illbient music at a whole new level. Imagine that.
20 The Orb
The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld


Ambient Dubstep
21Aube
Pages From the Book


Technically this is musique concrete but it doubles as ambient or even noise depending on what you classify as which as its more of a harsh/dark ambient sort of thing. Some guy ripping pages from a bible and constructing it so there's climaxes and it actually resembles a song.
22 Kreng
L?autopsie ph?m?le de Dieu


Dark jazz/Noirish ambience. Imagine the artist below this as a jazzy artist. But slowed down and prettier.
23Set Fire to Flames
Sings Reign Rebuilder


Ambient Post-rock
24Rachel Grimes
Book of Leaves


Neoclassically-ambient. Some chick on a piano going away for minutes at a time. Occasionally frogs will croak beside her. Beauteous as Fuck.
25 Gnaw Their Tongues
L'arriv?de la terne mort triomphante


Dark/Harsh Ambient. Ballstothewall music.
26Menace Ruine
The Die Is Cast


Wondering if I should put this here because although it's got that very darkwavey/drone feel (the last, seventeen minute long track is all drone) it's reliant on drone metal techniques so it might be in vain but still for those of you who think that sounds cool it's pretty fucking awesome.
27Loscil
First Narrows


Straight-up ambient guys. Some beats. Some drones. Not odd but very well executed.
28The Dead Texan
The Dead Texan


He drones on and on with tremendous beauty. Electronics help him out. Call him their friend. For fans of Stars of the Lid.
29Aix Em Klemm

I think I just really love dark ambient. But by no means should you start here. Stars of the Lid, Eluvium and this next artist are better.
