Coming this month on hybrid 5.1 SACD from Impex Records, pre-order here.
Dang it! I finally broke down and bought the 5.1 mix from NativeDSD after my query to Impex about when the physical release would appear went unanswered. My only consolation is that for once--thanks to a Black Friday discount--the DSD download was actually cheaper than the optical disc!

(It's a fine album, by the way.)

Is it at all discrete, humprof, or ambient rears?

BTW, just checked the IMPORTCD website. They ironically only carry IMPEX VINYL and RBCDs ... not their SACDs! Hmmmmm

I would say "room ambiance." The instrumentation on most tracks is pretty spare, and you hear more drumkit (especially snare and ride cymbal) in the rears than piano or bass. Voice and the rare lead horn is pretty strictly isolated to the fronts. Overall effect is more immersive than discrete, not unlike Anderson's approach to Modern Cool.

Humprof, the BD~A of Modern Cool sounded sensational on my system. Looking forward to this IMPEX Multi~CH SACD with open arms ... and EARS!

Please scroll down to the post #2 for additional titles, not fully confirmed yet (updated regularly)

Here is the link to all albums in Dolby Atmos currently available for streaming via Tidal.
Hi, It's Studio Voodoo here, I was signed to DTS for three years and released 3 projects. Studio Voodoo (self-titled) won the world's 1st Surround Sound award, The Discus. It was original music composed in 5.1/6.1. It's their first music DTS-ES release, 5.1/6.1.2.0 Stereo AND has a binaural mix. I have 20 of them left. It's a very unusual audio experience and have two of the albums available until they are gone. 2 DTS ES Surround Sound Studio Voodoo/ Club Voodoo 5.1/6.1 Multi Channel Disks | eBay

I've just bumped into Japanese listings for these three Mike Odlfield titles that reportedly include 5.1 format on DVD (taken from previous deluxe editions from 2009 and 2010 respectively):

All pre-order links are up, release date is December 23th.

I don't see After Hours by The Weeknd or Manic by Halsey. Both streaming in Atmos from Tidal.

Thought I'd mention them, since they're both hella good, current hit records and since PJ Gigaton is in the list.

Good point.
For the time being, I went with adding this link for albums available via Tidal, currently 80+ titles, at the bottom of the list. Half of them would fit the release list just fine, and I'm ready to add them if there's enough members who'd appreciate it - just tell me. Maybe a poll is due.
Gigaton was the first major title (QQ POW) on streaming platforms, and I kept it in the list deliberately, ready to delete it anytime (just like the running joke DSOTM, that I kept pushing back month by month, but now I'm done with it, I promise).

I looked at the 2020 list, and I think I have all that interests me, still need to order Point Yello from JPC, other than that nothing is striking out.

I am a fan of Cleveland Eaton, world known Jazz Bassist. I am not sure where to go to get his 2020 remastered lp Plenty Good Eaton?
Both vinyl and cd reissues of Cleveland Eaton - Plenty Good Eaton , are available at :" Real Gone Music .com".
as are a few other albums from the Black Jazz label.

;)
Good hunting , Good Eaton .
