Koen Holtkamp “Liquid Light Forms” LP

Mountains were already having a great year, what with their amazing new 2xLP out on Thrill Jockey and whatnot. But here comes 50% of the sexy electronic/ambient duo with a 100% sexy electronic/ambient solo album. Koen Holtkamp’s debut for the Barge label comes pressed in an edition of 500, with 100 of those copies on […]

Mountains “Centralia” 2xLP + CD

A new album from Mountains is set for a release date of January 18th. This is cause for celebration, the duo possess an uncanny ability to wrangle acoustic and electronic sounds together into a wholly overstimulating aural experience. The first ambient record we ever wrote up was by Mountains, and they continue to be one […]

Mountains “Air Museum” LP

We have no split opinions about this band. Mountains fucking rule. Period. Here are a couple of gents who truly know their craft – sublime and bubbling ambient jams aimed straight for your headspace. I’ve mentioned before that this is one of the first ambient groups we bothered to cover in these pages, and they […]

Mountains “Choral” 2xLP (3rd Pressing)

Thrill Jockey is now on their 3rd pressing of Choral, and if you have somehow neglected to pick up a copy yet, do yourself a favor. This stands as one of my first introductions to ambient music, and still maintains its status as one of the best – impossibly lush and aurally intoxicating. The 3rd […]

New Barn Owl and Koen Holtkamp Records on Thrill Jockey

Mountains “Etching” & Pontiak “Sea Void” LPs from Thrill Jockey

A little over six months ago, we covered a new release from a band called Mountains. That was the first ambient album we talked about on this blog – what would turn out to be the first of many. We assume it was fairly well received, considering that Thrill Jockey managed to sell through two […]

Mountains “Choral” 2xLP

Moutains, the Brooklyn-based experimental duo, just released their first record for Thrill Jockey Records today, titled “Choral”.  Their music is hard to describe, they play a sort of experimental drone-folk, melding together acoustic instruments and field recordings.  This is slow, dense stuff, with most songs clocking in at over 8 minutes.  All that being said, […]
