Again, I have mixed feelings for drone music. 
But this piece, by LA-based sound-artist Yann Novak, is pretty classy. 
See-through packaging featuring an almost all-transparent CD, one unique long track, tracking up a trip "during “l'heure bleue,” the period of twilight each evening when there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness."
21 minutes of fuzzy star dust, going up and down into your head (I suggest headphones for a full deep-down listening). Meditative, diffusive, filled with sunday evening bitterness: "Blue.Hour is presented here in a darkened room with 4 channels of sound paired with a large scale video projection. The piece is formed from photographs and sounds collected in Joshua Tree National Park in June 2010.".
You may fall asleep with this disc, just put it on repeat. It'll goes quietly mesmeric, fully lenitive, mystical.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
