Recently picked up Wobble's collaboration with Bill Laswell (Radioaxiom - A Dub Transmission). I think it's up there with each of their bests.
Besides all of the Paul Bradley stuff, I've recently also been getting into somewhat obscure Czech indie (and sometimes ambient) music with somewhat of an emphasis on real time playing and improv. A lot of these releases seem to center around guitarist Pavel Richter, who released a great album in the early 90s (Richter Band) of Ash Ra Tempel-sounding guitar ambient with a real band. Here are some of those releases:
Richter Band - Dead Line (a more recent one, with Saxophone and the group stripped down to a duo)
Pavel Richter - Richter Music (a three decade (!) retrospective))
Michal Koran - Etain (I really like his stuff, he's more keyboard ambient, though he has Richter and others playing, too. A little bit of fourth-world influence creeps into some of his pieces.)
A few Richter related releases are available stateside through Wayside Music, though I ordered the above directly from the Czech Republic, through Blackpoint Music.
