 Now Available -- Robert Davies - DWELLING PLACE

A welcome new release from Robert Davies.
Subtle, drone-based, pastoral, and very intimate. Ambient at its best.

CD available here.
Download available on Bandcamp.

 Now available -- The Winterhouse - SLOW AWAKENING

The Winterhouse (Robert Davies and APK) continue to bring us deftly crafted organic landscapes that are tinged with melancholy and rich with the shadows and details of intimate natural spaces. Spaces of beauty, seclusion and refuge that appear to emerge from slowly dissolving blankets of morning mist.

CD available here.
Download available on Bandcamp.


 Now available :: Nunc Stans - FURTHER AFIELD
APK has been keeping himself musically busy these past few years, but we have not seen a new Nunc Stans release from him since the excellent Peninsula from 2011. Further Afield is, however, certainly well worth the wait. Ten tracks of lush and subtly inventive drone-style works that flex and evolve, and conjure up vast landscapes, imaginary flights, and curious excursions.

CD available here.
Download available on Bandcamp.


 Now available :: Darwin Raymond and Jacob Newman - TRANSITIONS

Darwin Raymond (Ohio) and Jacob Newman (Colorado) combine their talents to create an
original and immersive album of wintry and
autumnal drones, textures, and subtle melodies
built around the yearning guitar work of Raymond.

CD available here.
Download available on Bandcamp.

 Now available :: The Circular Ruins - NIGHTFALL

Nightfall drifts towards a darker and more experimental territory than the previous Full Circle release from The Circular Ruins. The mood more mysterious and exploratory -- a journey into night, and into wormholes that sparkle with curious energies, and have unpredictable destinations.


CD available here.
Download available on Bandcamp.


 Now available :: Robert Davies - NIGHTSHADE
Nightshade feels like an intimate journal of secluded meanderings and drowsy reveries amid the beauty and endless mystery of nature; a nature that acts like a narcotic on the mind and senses. The music flows like a lazy river through this lush landscape, drifting gently from shade to light, past overhanging branches and secluded shallows alive with with winged inhabitants. This is music to relax by. Music that will entrance and carry you away.

Available here and on Bandcamp.


 Now available :: The Circular Ruins - FULL CIRCLE
A new solo release from The Circular Ruins is something very special here at DataObscura,
and this release exceeds expectations. Full Circle
is a collection of nine intricate and absorbing ambient explorations that show APK at his very best. Subtle rhythms, beautiful compositions rich with details, and a yearnng melodic structure that speaks volumes.
A work that will delight again and again.

We offer a quality CDr version and a 320kbs MP3 download version of the album. There is also a slighlty more expensive download available on Bandcamp for those who want lossless.

track 2


 Now available :: Robert Davies - WHAT THE MOON REVEALS
Over the years Robert Davies has created a considerable reputation for his work in the realm of lush and dreamy pastoral ambient. Music that transports the listener to various aspects of an idyllic natural world, and sometimes to the supernatural.
A music that tends towards the deeply immersive and refreshingly relaxing. On What The Moon Reveals, Davies continues this journey, painting hypnotic sonic portraits of intimate evening landscapes, and creating a series of memorable ambient reveries. It is a tour de force of sustained ambient artistry.

track 3

 Now available :: Nautic Depths and Nunc Stans - FALLING SILENT
The physical release is available on Musical Philosophy at El Culto.

At DataObscura we now have the download version for sale.

Falling Silent explores sombre and highly intimate sound worlds, maintaining an expressive flow with many embedded details. This is a work with uninterrupted flow and a complex subtle beauty.

Discover an entrancing blend of ambient forms and moods that shift and flow effortlessly from deep and lush to delicate and sparse.
