Can we have a thread where we share our latest internet/bandcamp/crate-digging musical finds? The music landscape is so vast nowadays so I'm sure all of us have albums/songs that are extremely unknown to others.

Dig the idea. I'll probably just keep making those types of posts on "Now Playing," cuz it's all gravy, while checking out anything added onto here ~

Yeah forgot we had that thread. I was thinking a music equivalent to the "cult cinema" thread

Hmm, yeah, I feel ya.
This has got to be one of the peak findz for me back in HS, when I realized there was an avant garde past even Sonic Youth's Tremens or Beefheart, loops that are as much musical craft as technical experiment:

Just found this 4-Hour comp of experimental Iranian noise/ambient sound art. Had no idea they had a thriving experimental music scene there. Dark, brooding, soundtrack-y vibes with some exotic flavor

Moving from the other thread. Another recent discovery for me, Foresteppe, is a Russian ambient musician who makes folky, warm ambient soundscapes out of decayed tape loops of field recordings from his native siberia. This album blew me away.
