Emeralds—Allegory of Allergies
Excellent bombed-out synth music. Kind of like a mixture of Richard Pinhas and some of the newer noisier drone artists. These guys and Oneohtrix Point Never are terrific.
Keith Berry—A Strange Feather
Wonderful quiet ambience here. Had a weird experience with the disc. Bought it from Ear Rational (presumably used) and the disc arrived with full packaging, etc., but no music on the disc. It had the printing, but apparently had never been burned. ER gave me a full refund and said to keep the disc anyway. I ended up buying the FLAC files at Twenty Hertz for $7, converting them to WAV, and burning the disc myself. Never had these kinds of problems in the pre-CDR era, but I won't complain since I got the "hardcopy" for next to nothing.
Kraftwerk—Ralf und Florian
Just a classic. I hope they get around to remastering and officially releasing the first three Kraftwerk albums within my lifetime. According to a recent interview, they will be doing so in the near future. I'm not going to hold my breath.
Fabio Orsi—Audio for Lovers
Have not purchased much Orsi, but this set is great. I really like his recent one with Seaworthy, too.
