The latest album from ambient artist, Dan Pound, serves to cement his old school approach to recorded sound treatments.  Reminiscent of early period Tangerine Dream ('70s), Esoterica, created over a 6-month period, is split into eight long pieces  that never stray from an isolated but industrialized sound that tells its stories with an icy candor.  Each well-composed piece rewards the listener with an event.  If you have enjoyed early ambient from classic artists like Michael Hoenig (Departures from the Northern Wastelands), and Tangerine Dream (Stratosfear), then you'll find much to love about Dan Pound, who creates genuine compositions that carry musical weight.

I'm actually surprised that Dan Pound isn't found on any notable ambient labels that can provide better distribution for his self-released works.  Dan Pound is a notable ambient talent.
