The Ballasted Orchestra
Yeah, I know it's what Ambient music is for, but this album floored me. A 21-year-old co-worker recently moved here from from Kentucky turned me on to this. Just a couple of stoners from Austin, sitting in their rooms late at night and making tones with guitars. Long blades, vibratones and luscious supple strings, layered and then dragged out for long periods of time. Absolutely stunning. Can listen to it all day and all night. Definitely a solid piece, and not too hard to find.
