Ambient Music Releases of the Week: May 3, 2024

Still My World – Two Lone Swordsmen

Although technically not new (previously available on a Japanese promo CD), and I don’t really categorize this as strictly Ambient music (a little too much percussion) but perhaps something more reminiscent of Downtempo, this 2003 commission by Italian fashion house Emigliano Zegna to soundtrack their Japanese debut gets an official release for Record Store Day 2024 and is worth a listen.

Infinite Light – Not Waving & Romance

Romance and Not Waving’s collaboration draws inspiration from Botticelli’s iconic painting ‘The Birth of Venus’ and combines charts with strings, tape loops and synthy goodness.

RITUAL (evocation) – Jon Hopkins

OK, this one’s got a driving beat, but I’ll allow it anyway because who doesn’t like Jon Hopkins? His new album RITUAL will be out August 30th.
