Field Recordings Albums


Hi all!!

Looking for albums of nature field recordings specially of birds, but whatever helps. Planning to use that at the start of a set and for my listening pleasure. Of course I considered just recording some stuff from youtube, but I’m more interested in actual field recording artist. Old or new, extra points for bandcamp links.


Chris Watson is the big boy™ on the scene at the moment
