Last.FM has its flaws, but it’s been great for discovering new music. Here are a few wonderful gems I’ve found while looking for music that Last.FM’s algorithms have deduced to be “similar to” C. Reider, and “similar to” Drone Forest.

An absolutely gorgeous 20 minute long bit of grey ambient bliss from Stray Ghost, called A House Of Gold And Oak was recently mentioned on Disquiet, and for good reason, this album is beyond good. (Last.FM link)

Still Crescent (Myspace/Last.FM) and August Stars (MySpace/ Last.FM) are the same guy, Sébastien Wright , who creates some ridiculously beautiful droning ambient music. This stuff is really great… I wish I could point you to a freely downloadable album, but at least you can stream his music. It’s worth it.

The eye-poppingly cool website of Erstlaub is appropriate given the high quality of his quietnoise drones. This guy knows how to let a drone develop from one interesting thing into another. Long live Erstlaub! (here’s his Last.FM link)


  1. Just noticed last night, I actually have a bunch of August Stars material, but just hadn’t gotten around to listening to it yet. It is tucked away in a relatively unexplored section of an external hard drive where I keep a lot of music. Finally had a listen. Wow! Really nice.

  2. I’m glad my post led to you exploring their music.
    They are really exactly the perfect kind of ambient music for me. Some of the other ambient superstars don’t really do a whole lot for me, but this band is something else.
