Scottish post-rock from Mogwai :: Mr. Beast :: its a truly amazing, expansive musical experience... reminiscent of Sigur Ros but uniquely special.
On DFA, the Juan MacLean :: Less than human :: is an excellent album filled to the brim with electro soundscapes and super beats. Some fab ideas from a chap who used to be on Sub Pop with a band called six finger satellite... very now
I missed this album by Buffalo Daughter :: I :: when it was first released... Don't know why? Love Cornelius and Takako Minekawa and see Buffalo Daughter fitting into that Japanese, quirky, new rock genre. Glad I have a second chance to check them out. Experimental and fresh... puts the new into new rock.
Lastly, my fav album on the iPod... especially in the car... is the superskanking, bum-mover from Nightmares on Wax :: In a space outta sound :: super chilled but with a massive skanking, soundsystem vibe - this could be the soundtrack to the summer. Lovely loops and big, big bass. Kind of disappointed that I missed them at the Arches... Supersweet!
