You’d be hard-pressed to find an ambient artist smaller than Brian Eno who is a household name—the genre is inherently pretty niche, saturated with low-key releases from underground communities around the world. But it’s still been a few months since we got a release from a truly big artist in the scene. This has made sifting through records for the column extremely fun since I’ve been pushed to dig even deeper than usual. This month’s roundup features albums from newcomers and unsung heroes alike. From Precipitation’s glistening take on gentle techno to Tewksbury’s cavernous ode to our rapidly evolving climate, these are August’s best instrumental electronic releases.
