Description: an album of pure light sadness distilled through piano sounds from young Ukrainian composer who uses the moniker The Landwash Of Eternal Tranquility. His musical compositions are expressed with bright emotions, diluted with soft ambient parts, which gives his music a unique style and special sound (c). Slow, sometimes minimalistic yet emotionally fulfulled compositions create the appropriate atmosphere of hopeful melancholy, and ocassional use of percussion brings some post-rock intonations to the generally ambient soundscape. Well done, and totally worthy to give it a listen. You can find The Landwash Of Eternal Tranquility music and listen it for free/download it for free using links below:

11. Cimaruta
12. The Death of Lovers
Description: Golden Gardens is the duo located in the city of Utopia and producing dreamscapes and anthems for magical minds. At least this is what their official Facebook page say. In fact this is a music duo that recently released their first longplay just in vein of their first Somnambulist EP. According to the words of musicians themselves, their music takes influences from music boxes and icicles; raindrops against a window pane; books being opened and closed at the library; submerging oneself in the bathtub; dry leaves being crushed underfoot; grey skies; summery fields; crashing waves and puddles in the forest. And the whole bunch of various artists, such as Slowdive, Cranes, Akira Yamaoka, Bohren And Der Club of Gore, Massive Attack, Portishead, Bauhaus, My Bloody Valentine and a lot of others.
Between the Siren and the Amulet is an album of perfectly produced warm shoegaze music. Starting with a droning ambient introduction, this album presents dreamy guitar based music and even more dreamy and gentle female vocals, that fill you with the atmosphere of complete calmness. Delayed and hazy guitars make songs sound totally soundscapic, ambient. And admitting the crystal beauty of singer's vocals again. A perfect piece of music for dreamers.

Invisible Elephant - Anomie or Swimming in a Black Sea

Invisible Elephant - Anomie or Swimming in a Black Sea

Genre: Shoegaze/Post-Rock/Dream Pop
Country: United Kingdom

01. Commercial Appeal
02. Everything
03. Where is Home from Here?
04. Wish [Feat. Ryli]
05. When It's All Over
06.  Room 208
07. Do You Believe?
 08. Black Sound
09. Back in the Box

 Description: Invisible Elephant is the solo project of a UK artist who writes the songs, plays all of the instruments and records the work at home combining found sounds, hazy guitars and spectral vocals. Blending elements of post-rock, shoegaze, psychedelic rock, folk-rock and dream pop he creates an immersive sound that defies simple categorisation. Veering from softly spoken psychedelic folk to ethereal soundscapes to monolithic walls of feedback, it's difficult to pin the sound down to one genre. Following on from last year's impressive and extremely well received debut Invisible Elephant returns with 'Anomie or Swimming in a Black Sea' an album of quiet heartbreak, searing dissolution and ultimately redemption. Anomie expands and builds on the dreamlike ambient haziness sound that made The Lights Go Out an otherworldly journey and lets reality filter in. What follows is an exploration of an inner world through sound and emotion in the light of loss.
The indefinable nature of Invisible Elephant's music isn't really surprising given the huge influence it takes from the literary works of Haruki Murakami as well as the diverse array of subtle musical influences from Elliott Smith, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Mogwai to Sparklehorse. This informs the sound which fuses the downbeat sincerity of freak folk with the visceral force of shoegaze and the cinematic euphoria of post-rock. The end result is music which exhibits subtlety, ferocity, discordance, melody and an acute ear for imbuing the familiar with the futuristic.

 Raphaël D. Hardy - Everything That Came Into My Mind

Genre: Piano/Neoclassical
Format: mp3 | CBR192kbps
Country: France
Size: 26 Mb

01. The House of Candy
02. Enchanted Grassland
03. A Scatterbrained Clown Has Lost His Red Nose
04. Tommy Has Stashed His School Report Under The Couch. Go Figure
05. John & The Seven Dwarfs
 06. Kathy Is Swimming In A Giant Candy Box

Description: an instrumental album from french composer Raphaël D. Hardy is an inspiring trip to the world of touching piano tunes. Gently and carefully produced these melodies create special mood of melancholy and calmness, and the whole album sounds like one long fairytale, which is not actually that long as album's length's only around 16 minutes. A very good and graceful piece of piano music. But the most important notice is that author is not a pianist and creates all his tunes by computer means. Considering this fact, Everything That Came Into My Mind sounds even more delightful. A sample track for checking it out is here:

Description: Happiness is an album, that appeared from nothing. The aim of it is happiness, even not happiness but its search. Album consists of two parts, Happiness itself (new songs) and That's pretty much the same thing (a compilation of previous works of The Cunt). Album is nervously calm, just on the edge of happiness. The idea of recording it appeared long time ago, but was realized only during the summer of 2010. First attempts of recording were made even in winter during small improvisations with Dmytro Moskalets (poet, musician, culturologist). This was Dmytro who played the piano pieces, which were parts of those improvisations (c).

aiRless pRoject - Dopamine Entities

Genre: IDM/Electronic/Ambient
Format: mp3 | CBR320kbps
Country: Macedonia
Size: 70 Mb

01. you're not my shrink!
02. untitled
03. beauty fades
04. morning of remission
05. a quest for eternal calmness
06. dopamine entities
07. triggering mixed states at random times
08. my entropy is well-deserved

 Description: a continuation of a trip to Macedonian undiscovered music will lead you to aiRless pRoject - an electronic music producing one-man band. The album is primarily influenced by everyday events, and inspiration is drawn from my views of the world and the music I listened to in the period of making, that is September 2009 to February 2010. If I had to single out some artists from the bunch, I'd say Aphex Twin, Casino Versus Japan, Kettel and Boy Is Fiction from the electronic music side, and Joy Division, Sonic Youth and Shipping News from the guitar music world.
The music on the album itself could be described as minimalistic, ambient/idm/downtempo-influenced electronica.
A great discovery, totally worthy to give it a try. You can find aiRless pRoject music and download it for free/listen it for free using links below:

Anilore - Still Awake

Anilore - Still Awake

Genre: Shoegaze/Dream Pop
Format: mp3 | CBR128kbps
Country: USA
Size: 52 Mb

01. Something Always Shines 
02. Imagine You 
03. More 
04. World Ends 
05. Soiled Son 
06. The Heavy Song
07. Movement
08. Octavia 
09. Black Halo
10. Absence
11. DMYH 
12. Showers Of Happiness

Description: a great shoegaze record dating back to 1996 and remastered ten years after. The members of Anilore met in 1992 at college. They soon realized that their musical tastes were shaped by the same influences--bands such as Joy Division, the Cocteau Twins, New Order, the Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Red House Painters, the Pixies, and Nirvana; artists such as Tom Waits and Nick Cave; and the seminal alternative British labels 4AD and Creation Records. After many years of lineup changes, demos, etc., the band recorded their debut album, Still Awake, in 1996. In 2006, guitarist Andrew Malenda decided to re-master Still Awake (c).
Extremely underrated, considering the fact that Anilore's got only 11K scrobbles @ at the moment, so it's highly recommended to be checked out. A sample track is here:

Последние Каникулы - Семь Ветров

Последние Каникулы - Семь Ветров

Genre: Post-Rock/Ambient/Atmospheric
Format: mp3 | CBR320kbps 
Country: Russia
Size: 105 Mb

01. Семь ветров
02. Восьмой
03. Не перематывай

Description: latest work from Russian one-man-project Последние Каникулы (The Last Holidays in translation). He is trying to write music which is always honest to listeners, there is no commerce in it, no desire to arouse interest of masses, or anyone else. It’s just like it should be, made from the emotions and associations of the author, who is giving a piece of himself in every sound by hard and confident work. (c)
Having taken the direction of instrumental atmospheric post-rock, this album starts with the track Семь ветров (Seven Winds) - a bright, epic and dynamic tune with slightly shoegazing guitar sound. The continuation of album is the second track Восьмой (Eighth), a good piece of ambient music, sounding pretty much like an interlude to the last epic and dynamic closer. But the third one, Не перематывай (Do Not Rewind) is being a great half-hour ambient track, sounding more abstract, than the second one, but containing tons of atmospheres in it, truly majestic yet surprising ending. Totally worthy to at least give it a listen. You can find Последние Каникулы music and download it for free/listen it for free using links below:

Blues for spacegirl - Alice Springs

Blues for spacegirl - Alice Springs

Genre: Ambient/Drone
Format: mp3 | CBR192kbps  
Country: Belgium
Size: 55 Mb

01. Alice Springs
02. Phase incoherence
03. Tethys
04. Glacier spins
 05. Holocene


Some musings by the author:

Inspirations for this album are visions of sped-up geologic activity, prehistoric things lurking in now-gone oceans, and generally the way things tend to gradually change, be it memories or mountains.

ALICE SPRINGS ventures somewhere in the middle between structure and improv. First half starts out as an hommage to Lee Ranaldo’s epic Amarillo Ramp (for Robert Smithson). Initial plan was a similar improvised, all over-the-place guitar freak-out coda, but along the way I figured there’s no point in repeating what’s been done before & better, so now there’s this metalish, somewhat civil end. It works well enough.

TETHYS is my favorite; it evokes the atmosphere of what I imagine is a prehistoric sea long gone. The song’s entirely improvised, instantly shaping itself in my head while I was tweaking the guitars and synth.

HOLOCENE is a pretty cool closer. The main goal for treating the piano with an overdrive+wah was camouflaging my horrible skills. Secondly, I like borderline-noise. Thirdly, it oddly resembles the sound of contemporary plate activity - if you listen closely
