The Circular Ruins – The Birth of Tragedy (DataObscura label)
(Price: $13.99) “The Birth Of Tragedy is a finely crafted and intimate album of sonic storytelling, and the first solo work of 2012 by Anthony Paul Kerby. The tracks flow like an enigmatic existential jigsaw, composing a broad introspective tapestry of melancholic and harmonic visions… (MORE/BUY)
Another new release from off the beaten path, this one by Wicked Messenger from the Plague Recordings label

We like to use our Hypnos store to bring our customers a variety of ambient music — not just the latest from the better-known names, but also new emerging labels, and a few artists who self-release. We have a new disc from Ray Carl Daye, Rapid Ear Movement.
Ray Carl Daye – Rapid Ear Movement (Miscellaneous category)
(Price: $10.99) Ray Carl Daye has been writing and recording ambient/electronic music since 2006. His first album Spectral Navigator, released on Magnatune in 2008 was chosen by Galactic Travels radio as a Top 20 CD of June 2009. His second album Echoes From the Aether released
in 2010 and available at the Hypnos store and ping things, was played on the nationally syndicated program Hearts Of Space. His current album titled Rapid Ear Movement was influenced by minimalists Steve Reich and Philip Glass, as well as Brian Eno.
“Ray Carl Daye displays an impressive talent that I’m quite moved by…”

New on the Hypnos Online Store from the always-excellent Infraction label.
Monos – Age and Transformation / Aged and Transformed (2CD) (Infraction category)
(Price: $17.99, 2CD) In a Stoughton gatefold mini-lp sleeve with matte finish inner sleeves for each disc. 2nd disc contains 40 minute track titled “transformed” that is ONLY available on the CD. Edition of 800.
“Nearly two hours of musical constructions spread across two discs and they are pieces that demand your attention. Intricate patterns are concocted through wrecked strings and the sounds of empty space. It’s like touring the architectural graveyards of the industrial world. Creaking and crawling through time, finding the longest, most difficult paths to explore the past, Monos (aka Darren Tate) aural landscape is a deep and detailed place. Strings feel like they could shatter at any moment. Field recordings are layered and brought to life, unveiling a living, breathing cityscape that exudes a kind of organic urbanism. It all feels so simple yet momentous and beautiful. Wistful chords flow from a Rhodes piano (or maybe it’s an organ… or maybe it doesn\’t really matter), dripping with nostalgic daydreams of life before the fall. Age & Transformation is a grand treatise on all things elemental and industrial and the inherent symmetry between the two.”
