Alien Nature - Station Platforms (2011)

This is one of the few times that I actually enjoy listening to a modern electronic album. And that is maybe because Alien Nature's "Station Platforms" doesn't really sound modern but rather vintage and old school. It is a concept album with field recordings from crowded train stations around the world. There are many interesting sounds made with drum machines and synthesizers that remind me of the 70s and 80s. This album is a real discovery. Dont miss it!

Arcane - Future Wreck (2000)

Arcane date back to the early 70's but this new album by surviving members Gerhard Schreck and Hans-Ulrich Buchloh and an unidentified new member is bang up to date with four lengthy tracks of sequencer riffing and cosmic exploration.. Dark atmospheres and ethereal pads combined with sequencers create an amazing album. There are also ambient moments with flute, melotron and rhodes piano. Highly recommended!Here (flac) - part 1
