076/100 - "Ancient Ocean" by Scott Lawlor and The Gateless Gate
I am in a fortunate position: I get to release music that I want to hear. Case in point is the recent collaboration between Scott Lawlor, and one half of The Gateless Gate, Allister Thompson; I consider the album they created - "Ancient Ocean" - to be an outstanding entry in the canon of both my netlabel and ambient music as a whole.
"Ancient Ocean" is deeply atmospheric and wildly progressive. Both parties shine: Lawlor's drones form an expressive backdrop for Thompson to let go on his guitar. As a fan of ambient and progressive music, this is a dream come true
