oh shoot, yes I'm sorry. I shouldn't have posted that in this Atmos thread. Please delete, mods.
Agreed on the spoken word too. It would be nice if it included a instrumental version.

The Perry Farrell album Kind Heaven, already mixed in Atmos, is going to be released as a part of the box set The Glitz; The Glamour on November 6th. Direct pre-order link is already here, the boxset will be strictly limited to just 3,000 units, exclusively numbered. Credit for the info goes to this article:
What is up with the occult imagaery? Brotherhood of the snake, all seeing eye. Not cool bro.

I could definitely see Perry joining the Freemason's back in the day. Funny thing is he was the total opposite when he started Psi Com and Jane's but has just gone off the tracks for the last 30 years.

This box set is the exact opposite of what everyone wants to hear, they want Jane's and P4P in surround, not Perry's scatterbrain solo stuff (some of which is cool like Woman in the Window and Revolution Solution) but those tracks are few and far between.

pretty sure I've seen this image on Song yet to be Sung

Album of the Day on Bandcamp a year or so ago:

Hardcore/post-hardcore is not exactly my cuppa, and I think I'm too old for "the emo equivalent of spoken word—slam poetry at its most sullen." But I'll still get behind indie musicians in any genre who are taking the trouble to remix their work for surround. (Just to clarify, though: it looks like 5.1 but not Atmos on this Blu-Ray.)
Finally got around to pre-ordering today. I was even more motivated after reading about them on Wikipedia: not only are they from my native state, but they're civic-minded:

"The band often works with charitable organisations internationally. This includes Wellhouse and 826 National in Michigan, Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK and Headspace in Australia. Every year on Christmas Day the band makes their entire catalogue of music available for free and asks for donations to a charity of their choosing."​

I've come across this nice article on current state of surround music (plus why a Dolby Atmos mix of the album The Twelfth of Never by Toronto-based world jazz group Manteca probably won't make it to physical media).

Great article, thanks! Makes me really want to hear that Manteca mix. And gives me hope for the future of surround audio.

Thanks.

Here's a link to the review of Sgt. Pepper in Atmos that it mentions. Sgt. Pepper Meets Dolby Atmos I'd not seen that before, though it's now a few years old.

An enjoyable read, thanks for sharing. I didn’t see anything about availability for purchase as a download. 🤔

Call me a foolish optimist but I still believe that there’s a chance that we’ll eventually see Sgt. Pepper in Atmos available for purchase. Giles and company, after all, already did the heavy lifting, plus Abbey Road in Atmos is already out there and with glowing reviews.

Regarding the Sgt. Pepper Atmos, is that available to stream on Amazon or TIDAL?
I saw this note on website PocketLink: "You can hear the Dolby Atmos mix with Amazon Music HD on Echo Studio, although it will come to other devices and services soon."

Huh--well that's encouraging. Not on Tidal yet, though, AFAIK. Amazon may have an exclusive so far.

Here's a new blu-ray audio release with both Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D formats:
US Army Jazz Ambassadors play Sammy Nestico - The Sammy Sessions
This was engineered & mixed by Jim Anderson and Ulrike Schwarz--a team with a long history in the industry that includes some top-shelf surround mixes. (Anderson's 5.1 mixes of Jane Ira Bloom and Patricia Barber's latest albums recently showed up exclusively at NativeDSD.)

You can buy the recording--along with some others they've worked on--from their website, and you can preview much of the album in stereo on Soundcloud. Old-school, middle-of-the-road big band, impeccably recorded. (At Skywalker Sound in Marin, I think.) Nestico is a prolific and influential composer-arranger. Incredibly, he's still kicking at age 96. I remember playing charts of his in high-school jazz band forty-odd years ago, and thinking then that he was some old dude...!

Thankfully, there is now a less expensive version of the box set to report, courtesy of amazon:
