About the show

Playing tracks by

S. Cary, Richard Hawley, Peter Gabriel, Genesis, Radiohead and more.

Ambient music will never be a popular genre. But over time ambient sensibilities have crept into a lot of modern music. And artists that normally don't do ambient music have dipped their toes into a droning sea.

So this mix takes us to ambient tunes by non-ambient artists. Many of the artists on this list aren't big surprises, but they are not known primarily as ambient artists.

Andrew Bird - Belles
U2 - 4th of July
David Sylvian - Answered Prayers
S. Cary - Rothko Fields
Peter Gabriel - Slow Marimbas
Mercury Rev - Pickup if you're there
Radiohead - Treefingers
BOC - Over the Horizon Radar
BOC - Heard from Telegraph Lines
NiN - Warm Place
Bowie - Art Decade
Genesis - Ravine
A. Bird - Yawny at the Apocalypse
Trespassers William - Just Like This
P.Gabriel - Nest That Sailed Sky
Richard Hawley - Last Orders
Unkle - Piano Echoes
Bowie - The Mysteries
P.Gabriel - Powerhouse...
Laurie Anderson - Walking and Falling
John Martyn - Small Hours(instrumental version)

I'm not sure but aren't a lot of these tracks before stereo or at least highfi?

Awesome - I can also suggest Ummagma to add to this list - awesome and free for download http://ummagma.bandcamp.com - like a love-in between Mercury Rev, David Sylvian, Peter Gabriel and Elizabeth Fraser.
