Olan Mill-Paths

Have you ever had that agonizing experience when you've found a piece of music that you absolutely must have, only to find out that it is not available to purchase anywhere?  Such happened to me several months ago when I first heard about Olan Mill..

If you don't know anything about Olan Mill, your chances of finding out anything are slim and none unless you are one of the lucky few who own an album by Olan Mill.  I have not been able to find out where this duo is from, but I can tell you that the music is great.

Olan Mill play something like symphonic ambient electronic music, if that makes any sense whatsoever.  This is what you get when you take ambient drone music and combine it with electronic sounds and neo-classical sensibilities.  Once again, this is a style of music you have to be in the mood for to enjoy. 

The only problem is that you cannot purchase Paths anywhere--not Amazon, not iTunes, not anywhere.  This album was released earlier this year as a limited run hard-copy only.  About 300 copies were released, so that should tell you something about this album's rarity. 

The scant availability of this album is why I have embedded the entire-friggin-album for your listening pleasure.  Warning: Do not operate any heavy machinery while listening to this music.  It is much too peaceful.
