Announced today, the forthcoming Let the Moon Be a Planet is the first volume of Reflections, a series of contemporary collaborations between guitarist and songwriter Steve Gunn and pianist and composer David Moore of Bing & Ruth. Over The Dune is the first single, and guess what? It’s lush.

Moby – amb 23-14

A lot of posts this month are likely to be based on me scrolling through countless end of year lists and writing variations on “how the fuck did I miss this – it’s amazing!” Today, though, I do have something new for you, taken from Moby’s new ambient album released on 01 January, “made to help anxiety (my own, and hopefully yours, too)”. amb 23-14 is a sparse 9 minute piano piece, with a few gently billowing synths drifting in and out, and seems appropriate for the first post of the year.

Ludovico Einaudi – Atoms

Four decades and dozens of albums into his career, Ludovico Einaudi doesn’t seem to be slowing down, which, if you like gentle, emotionally -charged classical piano, can only be a good thing. For me Einaudi is like a gateway drug I never graduate from into “proper” (read: old, probably Austrian) classical, as this kind of classical musical intimidates me, so I remain stuck on this less challenging but arguably just as beautiful fare. Atoms is gentle, sad (obviously) and foreshadows his new album Underwater due for release in January.

Claire Bigley – Awaken The Deep

It’s Friday right, so really I should be posting something party-appropriate to soundtrack your #bignightout but I now live in Devon so instead here’s a short ambient piano track complete with birdsong: perfect for watching the sun go down over some rolling fields or gently lapping beachside waves.
