Loscil - Sketches From New Brighton (2012)
This is a superb ambient album that really shines both in its musical diversity and sense of progression. All the tracks have subtle beats and glitches that almost make them melodic. In that sense, it's neither too minimalistic nor too busy. I could easily imagine this music being the soundtrack for a dark movie or video game. As the first Loscil album I've listened to, I am thoroughly impressed with this one. I expect most ambient fans will be too.
