I’ve been obsessed with what I call the new age of New Age recently. Decent modern producers that are taking that old Wyndham Hill and largely wishy washy early electronic hippy continuumm music into more relevant, listenable forms. This is a cracker from last year: https://ctatsu.bandcamp.com/album/music-for-tomato-plants
Thanks for sharing @joeblackcircles
The last track on the Giles Reaves is lovely. I like Mario Schonwalder - Force Down on the second one too, very much in the vein of KS and MS collaborations.
I bought this Rolf Trostel LP in the 80s, didn’t rate it much to be honest, so didn’t bother looking into him any further.
I used to buy from a mail order shop called Lotus Records in Hanley, they were the only place I knew of to sell this kind of stuff in the UK back then, it was pure pot luck, got some corkers but also some real duffers.
@fred_dibnah It’s great isn’t it! The rest of the album is a grower too, I’ve also got that Rolf Trostel LP, I quite like it. @Farsta Nightcrawlers were new to me too, one of the tracks gets a little annoying but ther rest are great.
Here’s another one I’ve picked up recently, side one is a little more, dare I say, Balearic Side 2 is very new age ambient.
I was convinced there was a post on Test Pressing of a Boeing promotional video with a couple of tracks off Windham Hill’s Soul Of The Machine compilation as the (added) soundtrack. But I can’t find it now Anyway, I became obsessed by this track as a result
It is pretty TD derivative, but does have a certain naive charm and unpolished diy spirit. Just look at the three of them, you know they’d be having a late night D&D session once the synths were turned off!
