Sonmi451 - Hummingbird
My sentiment is similar to Dave's. This release is pretty good, but somewhat forgettable; I've already found myself returning to previous Sonmi451 releases since Hummingbird
came out. Despite saying that, there is clear evolution here: this album feels a bit more polished than some of the others and it has quite a bit of acoustic sampling as opposed to the more prototypical bubbling digital sounds. So, if you're a fan, you should definitely give it a listen; there is a chance that some of the new stylistic components will appeal to you.

Excellent. This reminds me a bit of some of the bubbly digital sounds that I referenced above mixed with the recent experimental-acoustic leanings of 12k. Inner Ocean Records has also released a CD of remixes, featuring Pleq, the Green Kingdom, and others.
