Emancipator - Soon It Will Be Cold Enough (08)

[Downtempo, Trip-Hop, Chill, Instrumental Dub]

If you're a fan of music that induces extreme nostalgia, then check this guy out. His album leaked a while back as a demo of sorts without lyrics, but now the real deal is here. If you're like me and constantly searching for quality trip-hop or ambient sensory overloads that are rare to come by, then you'll definitely dig this guy. He plays and mixes all his tracks live and much like Morcheeba, his lyric dubs are brilliant and moving. With intelligent riffs and fluid down-tempo beats, Emcipator reminds me a more ambient sounding RJD2 or dare I say Ratatat; and is definitely recommended for fans of Dubstep artists such as Burial or Distance.

slightly similar to these crazies or vise versa: Bonobo, Hood, Telefon Tel Aviv, Psapp, Metaform, Portishead, Massive Attack, Royksopp

No-Man - Shoolyard Ghosts (08)

[Ambient, Art/Rock, Trip-Hop, Chill, Dream Pop]

Here is a long existing band who came together in the late 80s, and gained back a great deal of momentum in 2006 after releasing a canon of sorts entitled, All the Blue Changes. They've still managed to hang on to their mysterious progressive yet electronic/ambient sound with their 2008 release of Schoolyard Ghosts; a follow up to their misleading 2007 album The Break-Up For Real, again off of Hidden Art Records.

slightly similar to these crazies or vise versa: Blackfield, Frost, Magic Pie, Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree

Tigercity - Pretend Not To Love EP (07)

I'm not a huge fan of cheesy new wave or smooth electro bands, but these guys are an exception. I saw them open for VHS or Beta, who are in fact another exception to that rule, and they definitely relieved me of my simmering excitement. They're they epitome of smooth and sexy. Here's their independently released EP, Pretend Not To Love. Try "Powerstripe" or "Dark Water" all the way through for a sufficient example of their awesomeness.

slightly similar to these crazies or vise versa: VHS or Beta, Cut Copy, The Cure, David Bowie, Glass Candy.

Feathers - Feathers (06)

Looking though they’ve been sent directly from central casting, the psych-folk octet Feathers originate from the same fertile New England climates that generated the wayfaring likes of Tower Recordings and the MV & EE Medicine Show. The arrival of their debut album on Devendra Banhart and Andy Cabic’s Gnomonsong label has not gone unheralded, since the group have built a promising reputation through their guest appearances on Banhart’s Cripple Crow and opening for such acts as Sufjan Stevens, Dinosaur Jr., and Smog. Home recorded and originally self-released on vinyl, the music on Feathers exists largely in the bucolic countryside previously occupied by the Incredible String Band, Comus and their progressive brethren. This might lead skeptics to dismiss this spirited collective as just another escapist hippie revival, yet throughout the album the casual sophistication of Feathers’ arrangements—as well as their firm grasp of dissolute, post-Siltbreeze dynamics—helps these performances achieve a distinct emotive depth and a gauzy, out-of-time luster.

65daysofstatic - The Distant...(08)

Truly Amazing!

65daysofstatic began as Iain Armstrong, Paul Wolinski and Joe Fro. Their name is derived from the 1954 Guatemalan CIA white book operation. The three make untypical, yet amazing IDM. Here is there 2008 release, The Distant And Mechanised Glow Of Eastern European Dance Parties, due out this summer as follow up to their last album, The Destrtuction of Small Ideas (2007).

Slightly similar to these crazies or vise versa: Mono, Mogwai, Explosions in The Sky, Grails, Russian Circles

No Age - Nouns (08)

[lo-fi, noise, experimental, garage rock]

The art/rock duo has put out yet another quality LP with their 2008 release of Nouns on the infamous Sub Pop Records. The album is brilliant and compiled along the likes of other rising art/rock garage bands such as Black Lips and Japanther. Definitely an album to hear live.

Indian Jewelry - We Are The Wild Beast (08)

Here it is, Indian Jewelry's follow up to Invasive Exotics off We Are Free records along side their co-bands Yeasayer and Ponytail! It is incredible and just as deviant yet similar to IE as that was to Rattling Death Train. I personally miss the darkness that was Rattling Death Train, but nonetheless We Are The Wild Beast is still smothered with quality.
