Default Ambient and Drone.

anyone into these genres? they are two of the most difficult to listen to genres IMO, needing complete concentration to get into the music and enjoy the notes which have dragged out far beyond the point of structure.

however, in the right mood this music becomes my favourite.. two of the only styles which can infact wipe all thoughts from my mind and help me relax.

bands to check out..

Ambient
Eluvium
Biosphere
Triosk
Bohren and Der Club of Gore
Stars of the Lid
Helios
Death Ambient
Midoryama

Drone:
Sunn O)))
5ive's Continuum Research project
The Theory of Abstract Light
Darsombra
ASVA

i find the above bands to be lacking direction... great for background but not much more... But I'm very partial to more normal song structures I must admit.

In the Drone Pop field I like a lot of bands though:
American Analong Set
Khonnor
Low
Electrelane
Stereolab

Detuning to Drop A and hitting a random chord every 15 minutes isn't exactly creating 'music', in my opinion.

indeed.. theres a difference between ambient and drone (triosk are also ambient jazz), i just put them in a topic together as theyre often similar in structure.

Sunn O))) do more than that, though thats the initial sound there are many layers and modulations. anyway... music can be anything you enjoy listening too IMO.


Drone pop is an interesting concept! i'll check those bands out, cheers!

I like Eno and Erik Satie, and some of the other old stuff.

American Analong Set have been called drone pop for a few years now... best starting place is their stuff. It's also VERY good so that helps

By ambient, do mean setting up a microphone in the middle of the forest and calling it an album?

I always thought of Red Sparowes as being somewhat ambient. Really the only band like that I listen to. Well them and Sunn O)))

Red sparowes are awesome.. but more post-rock than ambient, ambient music is more minimalistic. i suppose a forest could easily be an ambient album :P
