These tracks are simply too good not to be released on vinyl or cd...
Hope someone wakes up and gives these tracks what they deserve.
I think mp3's are just too fleeting, i would like too hold a physical copy.

I don’t know what Ghostly is thinking, but the label is definitely heading in the right direction. Their recent signing of Scott Morgan (Loscil) demonstrates that they’re interested in exploring all depths of music, including its surreal ambient branch. The last time I checked, Morgan released Plume on Chicago’s Kranky label back in 2006. And it seems that he’s back with this three track digital EP. I can only hope that these minimalist and cinematic compositions, spreading over the soundscape like a cold textured cloud on a hot hazy day, are a prelude to a full length album by an artist whose alias is derived from a “looping oscillator” function. This is seriously delicious. Be sure to also check out Loscil’s free digital release, Stases, out on a Canadian “yet another netlabel”, One.
