Into Sleep to Create A Flame

Fighting insomnia last night, as I do most nights, I turned to one of the limited post-rock/ambient albums in my collection: Glissando's With Our Arms Wide Open We March Towards The Burning Sea.  

Every time I listen to this album, I'm blown away by how it manages to sound fragile and apocalyptic at the same time.  I don't know much about this kind of music, but I wish I had 100 albums just like it.

Gizeh Records has most of Glissando's releases up for free download:

Loves are Like Empires (the debut album)
The Long Lost/Of Silence (two song EP from 2010)
Live Two (London concert, recorded 20.12.2008)
Live One (Leeds concert, recorded 13.05.2008)

With Our Arms Wide Open isn't free, but Gizeh are selling it for the very fair price of £5.00 here.
