    I know this is shameless self-promotion, but if you guys enjoy this album like I have for years, you might like my own self-released album. It's a collection of ambient tracks, but it's hugely inspired by Sigur Rós, Riceboy Sleeps, Brian Eno, etc. so if you're into any of those fine names you might like this!!
