Hello music lovers and welcome in the next day of #a-zmusic challenge started by @psos.

It was just a matter of time when we will lost a track, make a delay or forget something. Entry for DAY G suppose to be published yesterday, but foxes aren't camels nor cactus and we have to drink a bit more. Questionable quality of this content can be only justified by the fact that in this dark day, we're here for you anyway, providing rare stuff from the edges of blissful and atmospheric sounds. Let's point our heads to the sky together, because

GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT

Irish post-rock band formed in 2002 by twin brothers Niels and Torsten Kinsella, which in the same year established their own, independent label Revive Records and released debut long play album. Their hard work was quickly appreciated by mass media, including regularly broadcasting videoclips on MTV, as well as global community filling concert venues up to the roof. During eighteen years of stage activity, they went from unknown, strange garage band to the regular Sold-Out American Tours. As every band with a history, they had to struggle with revolutions and changes in the squad(currently 6 members), but at the end of the day,guys survived everything and have never announce the end of the carrier. With the impressive 8 long play albums and 11 singles, mostly issued on their own label, God Is An Astronaut claimed their position among the best in their niche. Style developed by the guys employs elements of electronic music, krautrock, and space rock, combined together giving a great atmospheric brain massage. For today, please enjoy my favorite, and at the same time one of the most popular tracks from God Is An Astronaut, coming from their second(and re-issued 17 times) album

God is an Astronaut - All is Violent, All is Bright



Global Communication

British electronic music duo of Tom Middleton & Mark Pritchard, exploring common patterns and connections between techno and ambient since the beginning of 1990. During their artistic activity, they were working together on many other side projects including drumandbass Jedi Knight, acid Link & E621 or hybrid electronic Chameleon, Reload, Secret Ingredients, but Global Communication became the most important, not only for themselves but for the whole world of ambient music. Album called 76'14 fully deserves its timeless status. Lovely, warm sounds and tone painting, as well as sampling techniques and innovative approach for techno drum machines shaped the way for newcoming and rising, promising ambient artists. With this album Global Communication was responsible for re-design definition of ambient music in the early 90s. Please enjoy the longest track from this LP and have a nice day.

Global Communication - 14:31

God is an Astronaut 👍👍👍

Together with Explosions In The Sky, they've really opened my head for hybrid sounds of electronic & rock, served as soft and atmospheric as it is possible. Thanks for dropping a comment, it is always welcome :)

Nice selection! I'd have some recommendations for the H post: ;)


Hex - Harmonic sounds amazing. I've checked quickly history of Hex and realized that he was the most active almost 30 years ago. Thank you for this recommendation

BTW. DAY H was already published one day ago ;-) DAY I soon

Well, a lot of this kind of music is pretty old. the 1990s were the high times of the new electronic sound, after the pioneer days of the 70s and 80s.
Ever heard of this before?

after reading your post I thought that this one is also coming from 80's or 90's, which would be a proof of true visionary

sounds really nice and honestly I've never heard about this crew. Hope to see more posts from you with electronic music, because I see that you have a quite impressive knowledge. worth to share

I'm not quiet certain when I first heard Marcia Blaine, but it must be about 20 years ago, I guess.
Yes, I'm listening to electronic music since the mid/late 70s, so I've seen a lot. And yet I keep finding new artists even from those days. And sometimes I do share some... usually you can find it here: https://hive.blog/created/hive-164809

I didn't know about this hive community. Thanks. I just joined. Expect some posts from me soon :)
