After our discussion in the IRC channel, it seems we have similar tastes in music.
I have a few things that I have put together, without lyrics (I gave you a few of these links in the IRC channel):
If you ever hear anything with voices in this, just thumb it down to ban it: http://www.pandora.c...sh158340063934416871
I started this one with a friend on Last.fm that has similar taste to mine: http://www.last.fm/t...amn%20voices%20radio
and it has a free downloads RSS you can load in any podcast downloader, because I seeded it with a lot of freebies I discovered: http://ws.audioscrob...es+Radio/podcast.rss
And then there is the free download feed for the Rock Instrumentals genre at garageband.com: http://www.garageban...ock/podcast/totw.xml
Might also want to check out the genre of post-rock which contains a lot of instrumental stuff.
One particular net label that deals with a lot of post-rock and experimental music is Lost Children
, which gives away full albums under a Creative Commons license. The archive.org links they provide have a player on the page so you can listen a bit before deciding if you want to download the album or you can just pick & choose the tracks you want instead of downloading the whole thing.
Some other stuff:
Some of Matti Paalanen's projects: Frozen Silence
, Celestial Aeon Project
, Project Divinity
, Roomful of Emptiness
, Warehouse of Distant Dreams
(download links at the top of the pages gets you everything in one .zip file)
And a lot of stuff on the T-Sonic
site. And one of the guys from T-Sonic (Loomeer) has some of his newer works on his own site
is another one where you might find some good stuff.
