Hammock Maybe They Will Sing for Us Tomorrow
For ambient this is OK, but I'm finding I prefer modern Hammock more to earlier Hammock. This is basically just dreamy guitar delay for an hour. It's good for what it is, but for music like this I prefer to have a little more, I don't know, emotional depth? The melodies are kind of just *there*, but they don't seem to do more than just kind of float around and disappear, for six minutes at a time, each and every song. At this point I think I've found better ambient projects doing similar things more effectively that aren't named "Hammock."
Burial Young Death/Nightmarket
ambient? Sometimes it's good; other times it's just disorganized stuff like what's even going on?
Celer Plays Schubert
Ambient. Someone took Franz Schubert's "The Trout" and turned it into a Celer track (if that even makes sense). Melodies melodies.
Celer How could you believe me when I said I loved...
ambient drone/whatever. These melodies are a bit happier, and therefore slightly more
aesthetically pleasing. Each track is basically just one idea repeated for ten minutes but w/e.
3/5 good enough ambient.
Celer Infinite set
Ambient drone tape music or whatever nonsense. OK *this* one is basically William Basinksi, but drawn out for two hours. So it's OK, but not engaging or meaningful enough to warrant my going and saying "Hey did you hear the new William Basinski album that's not actually by Basinski but by this one dude called Celer?" It's OK, mind you, just not much more than that. It's the same melody that is varied slightly in each iteration, slightly enough that if you fast forward through the track it'll seem like there's some diversity to the music, but if you actually sit and listen to it it feels like just the same thing over and over again. Not m
Celer Two days and one night
Ambient. More sound sampling, beach sounds, etc. It's still largely just background ambient, though.
Celer Bell Tower
Ambient drone tape music. Eat your heart out, William Basinski, because this is basically a William Basinski album. It's just a short ambient melody looped for twenty-six minutes. But unlike Basinski's works, this one doesn't explode, or decompose, or sound like it's being plunged underwater at random/non-random intervals, so it's actually just the same melody over and over again for almost half an hour. As ambient music I suppose you could make an excuse for this, but I'm not going to. Nah, pass. Not the best Celer/William Basinski album. Exceptionally listenable, but not engaging at all--even for ambient drone/tape music.
