Embers Below Zero
The Oblivion Sea

The Shimmering Moods label has long been a reliable purveyor of ambient drones, and they maintain their reputation with this release, the debut full-length of Embers Below Zero. The Oblivion Sea is a suite of hazy remembrance music with a very melancholic effect. Limited edition of fifty CDrs, presented in handmade packaging.

The Lost Trail Orchestra
The Lost Trail Orchestra

Recorded over the course of the weekend, The Lost Trail Orchestra is an uncut collection of spontaneous improvisations, a glimpse at what happens when guitars, violins and minds are tuned in to each other. The Lost Trail Orchestra’s self-titled album is pressed only 50 times, and released in solid handcrafted packaging. They'll be lost forever if you don't watch out.

π∆ππ
Selected Piano Works

On his Selected Piano Works, π∆ππ treats us to that vintage three-days-in-a-Berlin-bunker vibe. By using just as much piano as silence between notes, π∆ππ has created a mesmerizing and esoteric album. What’s also esoteric about this release is the fact that there’s only 50 CDs, packed in handcrafted paper wallets. Don't let 'em slip away!

Viewfound
Memorate

Shimmering Moods is treating us to some great releases to weather the winter. Milo Thesiger-Meacham, also known as Viewfound, recorded the pieces on this album in the years between his 14th and 20th birthday, so you can actually listen to a boy reach adulthood. On this record, you’ll find lots of piano-based soundscapes, field recordings, and a sobering and calming musical peacefulness. Limited to 50 copies, with artwork by Milo himself.

Å Asher-Yates
Mothers Garden

The debut album from Å Asher-Yates is a fragile set of nature-inspired pieces that seem to slip back and forth between fluttering abstractions and ‘songs’. Mother’s Garden is bucolic and intimate like a woozy summer’s afternoon. Released by Shimmering Moods in a slender limited edition of 50 CDr copies, hand-numbered and hand-packaged.

Dimitar Dodovski
Dérive

We still don't know how a mood shimmers, but we digress: Shimmering Moods is still putting out the warmest drone there is. This new one from Dimitar Dodovski contains slowly calibrated ambient compositions with rhythmic sniffs, the atmosphere of the record coming alive like a slow dissolve effect. Derive suggests melodicism but clings to its kindly atmosphere.

Unidentified
001

For once, the name Unidentified isn’t a conceit. Apparently this music is sourced from an unlabeled cassette tape found in a Dorset charity shop, with no way of tracking down its creator. For (presumably?) amateur home jams, these synth tracks are quite impressive, with an eerie atmosphere to them. A curious business. Edition of 50 CDrs on Shimmering Moods.

Cynthia
Between Two Worlds

Cynthia tease us with the information that they are a pair of well-known artists… But we don’t get to know who. No matter, the sounds on Between Two Worlds can speak for themselves: a suite of semi-abstract composition, at times ambient, at times noisy, at times driven by rhythm. CDr release on Shimmering Moods in an edition of 60, with typically beautiful handmade packaging.
  • Label(s):
  • Shimmering Moods

Adzuki
Radio Sea

The key to Radio Sea’s sound and atmosphere is right there in the title: the meeting point of the infinite wash of the sea and the static hum of the radio. This place has been identified by Adzuki, and is evoked throughout the album, which forms an audio blanket around the listener. Hand-packaged CD on Shimmering Moods.

Delilah Gutman, Drawing Virtual Gardens
Charcoals

Delilah Gutman and David Gutman (the latter going under the name of Drawing Virtual Gardens) produced Charcoals out of delicate piano and heady electronics, resulting in sensitive semi-ambient suite of music that are right at home on the Shimmering Moods label. Limited edition of 65 CDs, in carefully handmade packaging.

Sapphirine Phlant
Until The Light Takes Us

More gorgeous ambience housed inside gorgeous packaging from the Shimmering Moods label. Sapphirine Phlant does a very interesting thing here, translating some of the vibe of Black Metal into electronic drone-song. Eerie, compelling results. Only 50 copies of this are available, no doubt on account of them all being carefully handmade, with photographs accompanying the CD.

Parallelism
Angular Geometry

Parallelism follows up his self-titled 2015 release with Angular Geometry. This CD on Shimmering Moods is ambient drone full of rich synthesizer and muffled field recordings. The album begins subtly, with barely perceptible tones and murky tape hiss like Kevin Drumm at his quietest. But beneath the surface there are some lovely melodies and even some glitchy rhythms.

Valanx
The Towering Pillars

With Valanx’s The Towering Pillars the Shimmering Moods label continue releasing artists who blur the distinctions of drone and ambient, electronic and acoustic. This CD, with handmade cover, strikes a darker tone than many contemporaries and pushes into dank, industrial zones. The music is dense and downcast; a bleak and often beautiful collection.  v

Bengalfuel
Rapalyea

‘Rapalyea’ is the latest release on Shimmering Moods Records by ambient synthesizer soundscapers Bengalfuel. Conjuring futuristic landscapes of desolate and peaceful majesty over luxurious pads and layer happy production, the record simmers with restraint until the final piece, which culminates in a rage of melodic chaos and mechanical beats.

Light Sleeper
The Goodbye That Keeps On Giving

The Goodbye That Keeps On Giving is five tracks of wistful ambience and fleeting melodies.

Limited Liability Sounds
Surrounding Countryside

Limited Liability Sounds present a slab of gorgeous ambience reportedly inspired by the nature writings of Henry David Thoreau. Just as his Walden rejects the modern world’s stresses and strains for the wilderness, so does Surrounding Countryside hide away in cushioning walls of drone ambience. Edition of 50 CDs on Shimmering Moods.

Fontaine
Diamond Lake

Another fine stretch of deep-reaching ambience from the Shimmering Moods imprint. Fontaine paints 4 audio pictures, with rich dark hues of electronic drift. As ever with this label, the music is packaged within handmade covers, with photos and a brown paper wallet. Only 50 copies of Diamond Lake available, so don’t wait around.

Arkadelphia
Islands of Mind

Travel deep with Arkadelphia, who has a weighty collection of ambience and occasional leftfield techno for you to dig into. As the release stretches over 4 hours and 34 tracks, it makes sense that Islands of Mind is being released on USB stick full of FLAC files (download codes included for other formats) in a ‘special’ brown paper bag. 50 copies only!

Chandeliers
Artifacts

Mood music reflecting deep and dark emotions from Chandeliers. Artifacts is a slow-moving submersion into still waters of warm, multi-layered ambience. Fans of Basinski's decaying soundworlds will find much to love here. Out on limited CDr from Shimmering Moods. In an edition of 100 hand-numbered copies with handmade cover.

Benjamin Finger
Motion Reverse

Following the textural ambiance of Eilean records April release ‘Pleasurably Lost’, Benjamin Finger returns with ‘Motion Reverse’ on Shimmering Moods Records. The record sees Finger reflect on a period of recent creative acceleration from which he has constructed this coherent yet playful collection of hypnotic dub tracks.

~~^^^macheteoxidado^^^~~
Viento De Las Montanas

Viento De Las Montanas comes as a beautifully handmade CDr package, with photos that evoke the same gorgeously desolate landscape that the album does. Constructed from field recordings, instruments including harmonica, and a strong narrative sense, ~~^^^macheteoxidado^^^~~ have made a deeply atmospheric work. On Shimmering Moods.

Sage Taylor
Parallels & Rhythms EP

‘The Parallels & Rhythms’ EP is Portland composer Sage Taylor’s second release on Dutch label Shimmering Moods Records. The A side is a perfectly flawed and serene work of ambient, blissed out peacefulness while the two B sides are both warm and hazy summer time tracks. Very limited edition with no repress.
