[Music] Various Artists – A Last Sunset, A Celebration of Candy Lozier, Volume 1

There is a group of wonderful ambient musicians on Facebook who constantly release music of stunningly good quality.  Names like Cousin Silas, Martin Neuwirth, Glen Sogge and Scott Lawlor among others are among the great names working in this field.  Another was Candy Lozier, a fine composer who passed away in September of this year.  She collaborated with so many wonderful musicians, ran a label, and contributed mightily to the spread of ambient and electronic music.  This compilation is a great memorial to all she did for the scene.

[Music] Rainbow Chan – Long Vacation

Rainbow Chan released what has to be one of the most freakishly charming releases I’ve heard in a while.  Think of someone as innovative as Björk, but far more experimental.  From her Bandcamp website:

Rainbow’s latest EP Long Vacation singlehandedly places her among the most innovative composers and musicians on the scene right now. More Dirty Projectors than J-Pop, Chan isn’t afraid to mix textures and sounds that lie far outside mainstream familiarity—weirdly warped bells, floating, dissonant flutes and her own voice mixed and mashed into its own mosaic of shattered parts.
