Can anyone recommend me some similar stuff?
some things i can think of that you might like are:
Fennesz, Swans, Barn Owl, Mouthus, The Skaters, Sunburned Hand of The Man, Burning Star Core, Pocahaunted, Terry Riley, Excepter, The Dead C. All awesome awesome bands. I recently saw a guy called Concern in a support slot and he was really awesome too, although i have no idea what he'd be like on record.
I keep meaning to check him out.
you might like Manuel Gottsching.
try E2-E4 and Live at Mount Fuji.
but also everything above.
^Listen to the sample of the 'Neon Pibroch' album. So good!!
^Tangerine Dream. It's kind of vast and depressing though. Even on youtube!
I dunno what Growing sound like now mind ye, the last album I got was a while ago.
you can actually let the bloke from Emeralds be your guide look
i've given up listening to any more of the new school of cosmic synthadelia after "solar bridge" came out. it makes everything else seem so unnecessary.
70s kosmische stuff.
'What happened' is EVEN BETTER/
I just got Challenger. And it's blissful, but better when it dissolves into white noise feedback. So yeah, that.
but 'post abandoned operator dead' is even better. I think both are essential really. God I love BSC.
and they don't have a myspace or owt so ah can't tell what they're like without purchasing summat. Could someone describe their music to me?
some quite minimal some big and billowing. started to get a bit more rhymical recently.
i'd start with this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Color-Wheel-Growing/dp/B000FIHJ9C/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1257324707&sr=1-3
also try some of AMP's more beatless stuff...

mark wastell's gong stuff
But Endless Summer, Black Sea and Venice are all absolutely beautiful, must-own albums.
Stars of the Lid are another good bet. Their earlier material is noisier whereas their latest stuff builds walls of monolithic melody. It's gorgeous.
one half of stars of the lid. a good one.
Antoher good one.
and on that note, Bark Psychosis (a little less droney perhaps)
but check out Mark Mcgurie's solo stuff, and records under the name Skyramps and Sunwatcher. They're all really great. Skyramps particularly, while not sounding THAT much like emeralds is brilliant. (You can buy his cd-rs and tapes here : http://mcguiremusic.blogspot.com/ )Also can we talk about how brillo the new emeralds LP is? Top, top notch stuff...
Also, all the Skaters related stuff maybe? Dolphins into the future? Belong? Sun Araw/Magic Lantern? Earlier Grouper? I dunno...
October Language is one of the best albums of its kind out there, its sublime. Also maybe Tim Hecker.
My favourite bits are on side b when it all gets massively loud and seems like it's about to break the speakers.
Agreed about der rest of the related stuff too but I wasn't that fussed w/Sun Watcher. Skyramps \m/
