Stoked to see some Carbon Based. I'm pretty sure you're familiar with it already Will, but Tim Hecker's An Imaginary Country is so fucking good. The pulsating bass in some of the tracks puts me in a really cool place.
Tim Hecker - Where Shadows Make Shadows

Bvdub is also really sick. Had to upload this track to youtube myself.
Bvdub - It Mattered Once
Bvdub - Make the Pain Go Away
I dont know man, I really hate drama and for better or worse I assume that every woman from Colombia is going to be crazy like the chick from the movie Blow, which is more bullshit that I'm willing to deal with.

Stoked you're into it. That song led to a lot of design decisions for one of my projects last semester.

I've been meaning to rescan that photo and make a print of it for awhile now.

I was about to come in here and suggest Tim Hecker but it's already been covered.

Check out Eluvium. The guy is basically and ambient composer.

recently though I've really been into Teebs. This guy kills it.

All those songs are some of my favorites by him. That stuff may be a little more beat oriented than what you were looking for, but I feel like you'd enjoy it either way seeing the stuff thats already been posted.

You might also check out Howard Hello, Grouper, Boards of Canada, and maybe White Rainbow.

That can be done.

That Bvdub track you posted is jawsome.

Alright here we go.

First off, Ben Frost. This track is from his album 'Theory Of Machines'. Truly amazing and touching minimalistic drone ambient sounds. Also you should check out School of Emotional Engineering. Its a project he worked on while still living in Melbourne and has a more post-rock type edge to it.

Fennesz makes really interesting glitch noise ambience but still maintains a strong sense of harmonious textures and waves.

There's been some nice links in this thread so far. I'll post some more up soon.

I highly recomend CBL's newest album, Twentythree, it's an entirely beatless album

CBL - Arecibo

This one's a little darker, sounds a lot like a sequel to "Irdial" (I get chills when I listen to this on full blast with headphones)

and there's definitely a psychedelic influence to this that I really like

CBL - Terpene

Also check out their album World Of Sleepers, it's a great one to listen all the way through (especially when k-holing :rolleyes: )
