“14 tracks for summer's embers”

We're suckers for wistful indie shoegaze and nostalgic pop ambient - these are some of our recent favourites: Brian Pyle aka Ensemble Economique with 'We Come Spinning Out Of Control', the majestic pinnacle of his wonderful 'Fever Logic' LP, and we've recently become besotted with 'Forever', an unusual and beautifully successful deviation from Michael Morley aka Gate. Torn Hawk's transformation of Karen Gwyer is one of this summer's most bewitching mixtures of dusty highway and dream-pop modes, and White Poppy's ethereal hooks have left us reelin' in the lushest way. Ashley's Paul's ghostly 'Leave Mine' is one highlight of many from Emerald Cocoon's 'Alone Together' series - also look out for Pete Swanson's #2, you almost won't recognise him - while Takeshi Nishimoto's 'Apple Tree' composition with Robert Lippok is the definition of spine-chilling, and 'Firmament' from Virile Games' 'Wounded Laurel' is a beautifully brooding, melancholic pleasure. Of course, we couldn't miss a choice cut from the lovely Forest Swords album on Tri Angle, and Earn's 'Stray' for the romantic ambient types...

“Why MP3?”

great music selection ruined by only offering MP3 (or have I missed something?). Please get your act together and offer cd quality (at a minimum) FLAC files so the music can be enjoyed at its best and not with its life compressed out of it.
