I think that Orsi' Audio For Lovers will grow on you. I've only heard it twice, and like it so far, though I think his "Wild Light of the Moon" CD is better and more focused. One minor criticism I have with Orsi is that his production values are a bit rough for my taste (for example, his crude looping of simple guitar lines could be more interesting), but this may have to do with there being so many of his releases out there in a relatively short period of time. Of course, you could make a similar argument about other similarly prolific artists like Brian Grainger/Milieu, who seems to release albums like they were newspapers.
Arvo Part - Alina (minimal, beautiful and hypnotic; sparse piano and cello)
Juana Molina - Un Dia (even further out there than her prior releases, great!)
