David Storrs - Channel For The Light (1984)

You've been waiting a long time to hear this....
Well it's finally here! David Storrs' rare 1984 album Channel For The Light has now been found! I had contact with someone who said they owned the tape a few years back but they never came through, I'm glad to say that it is now part of our collection.

David Ison - Ison Sleep System: Sleep & Relax (2009)

I usually don't like listening to new age recording from past 2003, as I have always thought that electronic music began to decline rapidly after that year. (Music from now-a-days, forget it. That garbage is a mockery of good electronic music.) However, this 2009 album by David Ison is PERFECT. Perfect as in it's relaxing, beautiful, and it really helps me fall asleep. I love listening to all of my collection when I lie in bed, but this one seems to help me fall asleep faster than all the others. Just listen- You'll love it.

Gentle Persuasion - Electrifying Thunderstorms (1987)

Another CD I found at a thrift store, this one is a nice field recording of a thunderstorm. The thunder is pretty loud too. It's nice to listen to in the background, you really feel like there's a storm going on right by you!

Glad I found it at the thrift store!

Gervay Briot - Quintessences (1985)

A release so rare, you can't find any information online about it? I've got one here, by a little known french composer named Gervay Briot. And this is an amazing ambient album. Recorded in 1985. Got it at a thrift store and forgot to upload it when I got it.

If his other albums ever surface one day, that would be great. He reminds me a little bit of Aphex Twin.

Hey everyone. It's me again.

I don't have an actual tape for you, but I have something I made myself. They are improvised instrumentals I performed and added some hiss and distortion to make them sound like they are ripped from a new age cassette from the 80s. It's my love letter to released like Valley of The Sun.

Hear a sampler here:

Buy Album/Hear full length tracks here: https://deirdre-airlines.bandcamp.com/album/spectral-fractal

It's available for five dollars. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor. I have another album coming out soon with a fellow ambient artist.

In the meantime, I hope I can find more actual old releases to upload here.

Kim Robertson - Wind Shadows Vol 2 (1983)

This is NOT Valley of the Sun or Great American audio, but it is too good for me not to put up. I was with a friend of mine at a thrift store in her town, and I went searching through their CDs, hoping I'd find some new age music - And I got what I expected! It's great sounding harp music from excellent harp player Kim Robertson- Take a listen for yourself!

Karl Schaffner - Pagan (1993)

Here's a rare one, I've never even heard of this one before! It's always nice to discover a new Schaffner album, Here's what I think about it.

Track 1: One 2 Seven- Almost reminds me of Jam Hammer's Miami Vice theme, pretty funky synth stuff here. Very 80s sounding.
Track 2: Bluebodies - A tribal/jungle feel to this one. Pretty cool. Gets really good with guitars more than halfway in.
Track 3: Starbound - Reminds me of music from a late 1990s Playstation or N64 game. It's pretty good.
Track 4: Serpent - More tribal drums. gets a little boring though.
Track 5: Fancy Dancer - My favorite track on this release. Nice guitar work.

This is clearly not a new age album to meditate to, but a pretty funky album with some world music influences. I suggest checking it out, great background music for working and such,
