Fragility this morning has prompted me to think that there should be something a little gentler about a Sunday, ahead of the return to work. So, from now on, Sunday’s will be Ambient Sunday. To start, here’s a whole album to download. This is by US newcomer John Praw.

Bio: I’m an ambient musician living in Madison, Wisconsin.  I recently released my first full-length album under this
moniker.  This self-titled album was recorded between 2006 and 2011 in Wisconsin, USA and Bø i Telemark, Norway.  I am currently finishing a double major in Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. This album is available on Mine All Mine Records, but we are allowing music blogs and websites to give the album away for free.

Have a listen to a track from the album. Most of the pieces include held tones and slow piano. The track below is a good example. This is ambient from post-rock or even with a little of Biosphere’s chilliness, rather than The Orb’s dub and whalesong.
