A Closer Listen’s Fall Music Preview: Ambient & Drone 

Source: A Closer Listen.

And now we come to the last of our five fall previews, introducing the relaxing sounds that can soothe away a hard day, paired with the hums and extended tones that operate as harbingers of night. Lodged in the middle we find dark ambient, a blend of the two that reminds us Halloween is only a month away!

We’re particularly pleased to see the resurgence of drone releases following a fallow summer. While darker hues are best suited for darker days, we’ve missed hearing them ~ and we’ve chosen one as our top pick.
