Impressive list as always. Is that Fennesz disc supposed to be Black Sea, or is Black Ice something else still?

sorry, i am reading the endurance now and have black ice on my mind....
if you have a list, please post in comments.
thanks as always, matthew

wonderful blog my friends. I enjoy most of the music you suggest. Can you tell me some good music labels? Maybe underground cause I know most of the mainstream ambient music labels (mystery sea, taalem etc). Thanks and best wishes :)

thanks seph,
we now have a label, which actually is underground partly, because the office is on a hill and half embedded in the hill.
here is our site:

www.invisiblebirds.org

and here is our small list of labels, that will get bigger soon:

M,

I thought you might be interested in watching the video I put together for Wolfmangler's "Blue Hotel". As is often the case, I didn't shoot any of the footage myself. I think the music might appeal to you if you haven't already heard it. Enjoy!
