ANBB, bvdub and Wolfgang Voigt all feature on the next annual compilation.
The CD features many of Pop Ambients' usual suspects, including Thomas Fehlmann, Mikkel Metal and label co-founders Wolfgang Voigt and Juergen Paape. bvdub makes a return appearance after debuting on the series last year, and Joerg Burger (AKA The Modernist) appears under his most ambient moniker, Triola. The album kicks off with a cut from Raster Noton artist Alva Noto and former Einsturzende Neubauten member Blixa Bargeld, who work together under the name ANBB. Also featured is Daniel Ansorge, AKA Barnt, one of the co-founders of Magazine, a Kraut rock inspired label that burst onto the Cologne scene earlier this year. Perhaps the most intriguing part of the compilation is Bhutan Tiger Rescue, a duo made up of Ewan Pearson and October that debuts here with a droning track called "Beginner's Waltz."
