"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Supplementary benefits

Follow-ups/expansions of a couple of recent posts (this one & this) in ambient-ish post-jazz/post-rock territory...

You'll wish Kammerflimmer's effortless coda "There's a weight..." would go on forever. Infuriatingly, though with impressive self-confidence, it's over in moments. Their version of Robert Wyatt's Venti Latir is satisfyingly insistent, intensifying into a clonking, squawking climax - & then climbing down again a bit sheepishly.

A trio of extracts from some obscurer Rameses III instrumentals, welded into an LMYE 'hack', kicks off with the frazzled, sun-coming-up riffage of Ashes. It pauses for a moment's breath with the gentle, reflective Tidal Draw, before culminating in the twangy warmth & washes of September Morning Rain.

Rameses III > Extracts [LMYE hack] (from Ashes on Matanuska, Music Fellowship; The Tidal Draw on Gold Leaf Branches [VA], Digitalis Industries; September Morning Rain on Kanoja, Myos Hanoja [VA], 267 lattajjaa)

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
