Dynasty of Ghost Town (Sampler)

This is a 50-minute sampler of Bathetic Records' forthcoming 11-cassette pack, Dynasty of a Ghost. You read that correctly: ELEVEN tapes, all of which lean pretty heavily toward experimental ambient/drone stylings. Artists include Lee Noble, M Ged Gengras, Padang Food Tigers and Little Rock's William Cody Watson.

Baby Armie - TOB Podcast 038: Roots of Moon Rock



Check this two-hour primer on ambient music I made for Brooklyn-based dance label Throne of Blood. It's a counterpart to their new ambient series, Moon Rock, which features ambient contributions by mostly non-ambient artists. Confoundingly enough, dance icons Jokers on the Scene and Simian Mobile Disco even contributed ambient tracks. That should give you an idea of how disorienting and unexpected this compilation is. But the results deliver. Each contributor sounds right at home with this sound, and the compilation may just end up being one of the better ambient listens of this year.

For this Roots of Moon Rock podcast, my aim was to cover the gamut of influences that make up Moon Rock: Eno-era ambient, German kosmische, '90s IDM, new age, and more. It will serve as a pretty good introduction to ambient, since many of the genre's household names can be found here as well as a number of lesser known artists. There's also plenty of ambient songs by artists not particularly known for ambient work: Carl Craig (as BFC), Kenny Larkin, Move D, Kraftwerk, etc.

Tracklist after the jump.
