Boards of Canada finally announce the release of their anticipated new album, Tomorrow’s Harvest!
Song of the day is the new track from Zomby: Soliloquy.
Analogue synths are back like nobody’s business. One of my favourites is the ARP Odyssey.
KORG launch the Volca Series. 3 analogue synths for leads, bass and rythm.
DIY synths are popping up everywhere these days, and a lot of them are great.
This is The NovaDrone by Casper Electronics, the same guy/company that made the Drone Lab synth. This thing is awesome, and you can add an endless amount of units into one another to create drones for days.

Here´s a video of the El Capistan delay pedal from Strymon. I can´t belive the wall of sound this little box makes. I´m getting one as soon as I can afford one. The same goes for their Blue Sky reverb pedal. Just great tones and so many different choices.

I came across this guy Lowecase Noise on YouTube the other day, and was blown away. He uses a bunch of different pedals to create his ambient sound, but what caught my eye was the Strymon El Capistan delay pedal, and the Strymon Blue Sky reverb pedal. What a huge sound they make. Just walls of drone. Guess they would be just as good to use with a synth to create drone/noise as they are making these wonderful sounds.
