Between Interval – The Edge of a Fairytale
(Spotted Peccary category)
(Price: $13.99)
The Edge of a Fairytale, the first new music from Between Interval since 2006’s Autumn Continent, delivers eleven deep and powerful soundscapes characterized by mystery and wonder, and inspired by questions that have obsessed humans throughout the ages.

Stefan Strand, Between Interval’s sole creative force, explains:
Curiosity about the origin of life, the history of mankind and our universe is a classic theme, and I felt that I had finally reached a point where I needed to let it strongly influence my music. Strand elaborates, There are many religions and beliefs in this world. There are stories and tales that are thousands of years old about mythological characters, creatures and places. To me, letting these tellings influence our lives, without knowing the truthfulness behind them, means that we’re living on the edge of a fairytale – between the known and unknown…

Paul Ellis – From Out Of The Vast Comes Nearness
(Spotted Peccary category)

(Price: $13.99)
A purely electronic expression of five long-form pieces that blend ambient sound design with rhythmic electronics, recalling the classic works of genre masters like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze or Vangelis; but with a restrained modern air. With a mixture of synthesized sonics, both melodic and cerebral, the music brings to mind the unfolding expanse of the cosmos, stated with a graceful patience that propels the steadily evolving, constantly moving synthscapes to a highly personal level…

Terraambient – Wanderlust
(Spotted Peccary category)
(Price: $13.99)
Following his widely acclaimed 2004 Lotuspike release, The Gate, Jeff Kowal (aka Terra Ambient) now delves deeply into his most personal space, sculpting a sonic cathartic experience for all to hear. It’s a journal, says Kowal. What started out as an expected sequel to my previous release, turned into an emotional sketchbook of some major changes in my life, including a move to the American Southwest.

Wanderlust does in fact range from the subtle to the grandiose: epic, sweeping and luscious, Wanderlust plays more like a movie soundtrack than an ambient CD. Delicately balanced between tribal, ethno-acoustic earthiness and searing electronic pads and leads, Wanderlust takes the listener on a journey. Aside from synthesizers, Kowal brings many other acoustic and electric instruments into the mix, including frame drums and percussion, didgeridoo, electric guitars, bass, bansuri and PVC flutes, and a modular analog system…

(Spotted Peccary category)
(Price: $13.99)
On their first collaborative release, A Dimension Reflected, Jourdan Laik and Phillip Wilkerson present eight thought-bending, deep drifting tracks of pure ambient spaces, where electronic yet organic, expansive washes of sound, drifting chords and swirling synthesizer textures communicate the resonant beauty of time and timelessness.

“In appreciation of the expression of the human perception of time. Being present in each moment. Valuing the
timelessness of each second.” -Time Being…

Jeff Greinke – Virga
(Spotted Peccary category)
(Price: $13.99)
The music on Virga takes shape as strata of slow moving melodies stream their way through expansive atmospherics and pastoral passages of ambient chamber music, highlighted by cello, trumpet and piano on many selections; all drifting together to construct complex harmonic musical skyscapes. The cumulative result is a collection of vast, textural, cinematic, and melodic compositions with a strong sense of mood and place that gently evolve and drift — like the clouds themselves…
