Fuck your doom-and-gloom projections about the music industry's demise. If you want an operative model look no further than Ricky Eat Acid, a largely ambient project from Maryland's Sam Ray, which sold out it's pre-release vinyl run on the up-and-coming Orchid Tapes label in two days.

To those 250 people who bought Three Love Songs without hearing it, you're in luckā€”it rules. Featherweight electronics, aching piano, snippets of speech, even a pitched up Drake sample swirl around in a stew of delicately rendered pathos. While many ambient records try to alienate the listener from a familiar emotional spectrum, these songs describe moments of recognizable, lived-in humanity. [Noisey]
