Friends - An Ambient Compilation


#1

Hey!

I’m super very hyper proud to share this new compilation with you that just came out on my label. It’s called ‘Friends’ and I believe it is something very special.

It started with a conversation I had with @fourhexagons months ago. We thought it would be a wonderful idea to invite many of our friends to form a compilation that basically plays like an album. Not just a bunch of various artists but a collective statement and a snapshot of our little ambient scene that is spread across the world, yet united by a common passion and (well) social media :slight_smile:

So we contacted a lot of our favorite artists and told them that the compilation would only happen, if most of them were on board - And all of them joined right away.

Today, this compilation is finally released and I couldn’t be more happy about it. It is available digitally and in a limited cassette edition, which will start shipping end of December / early January.

Here’s the official blurb, which sums up the project pretty nicely:
“This compilation was not made by various artists, it was made by friends. It is meant as a collective statement from our little ambient scene. Peaceful, dreamy and optimistic.”

Friends are:
Emily A. Sprague @stripes
Lightbath @fourhexagons
Hainbach
Interlaken
Paperbark
Scott Campbell @scttcmpbll
Jogging House @boboter
ann annie @annannie
ioflow @ioflow
r beny @rbeny
Amulets

Seil Records is typically high quality stuff… Last Night by Paperbark is fantastic, along with several others. I keep returning to these recordings, definitely looking forward to becoming familiar with (falling asleep to?) Friends (the sounds of)
