Evangelista - Hello, Voyager (2008)

It would be silly of me to try to describe this album or Carla Bozulich and her band with any accuracy or insight. All I can say is, Well, it's kind of dark and chilling, but has incredible energy, and I guess it's genre-jumping and more unclassifiable and just brilliant than anything else.
And I know you get nothing out of that, so just trust and download it, yeah?

Ólafur Arnalds

Eulogy For Evolution

Variations Of Static

"Only 21 years of age, Ólafur hails from the suburban Icelandic town, Mosfellsbær, just a few kilometres outside Reykjavík. He has immersed himself completely in the world of delicate symphonic compositions in a near weightless orchestral undertaking. Mixing strings and piano with loops, ambiance, electronics and beats. Debut album 'Eulogy for Evolution' takes the listener on a journey, representing different periods in life, from birth to death. The follow-up 5-track EP ‘Variations of Static’ so far has only been available as a limited tour edition. While keeping the classical foundations of his debut album, here Arnalds incorporates crackling electronics and the dead voice of a machine; like vague memories of tradition lost within the digital age we all live in."

Piglet - Lava Land (2005)

Sadly, the only release from an incredibly talented band. Fans of Owls, Tera Melos, and Maps & Atlases will be blown away by this. If comparisons alone don't convince you, stream a few tracks HERE.

Encrypt Manuscript - Dialogues (2004)

This band just released a new album called Census, but I would feel terrible if I were the one leaking it. I mean, I've never done that before. Regardless, I feel that I must promote them anyway, so here's their first EP, which is just as good. It'll remind you of At The Drive-In, or some other such band, except the angular guitar riffs are smooth and groovily jazzalicious (dig?), as opposed to being dissonant and distorted. Sometimes they actually execute both simultaneously.

In any case, there are four tracks from the album Census streaming on MYSPACE for you to check out. If you dig it enough, consider purchasing the record. There are only five-hundred pressed, and the packaging is pretty sweet, so it's definitely worth it.

On the other hand, I might consider uploading the new album if enough people download this EP. So there's a little incentive to spread this around, I guess.

Ahleuchatistas - What You Will (2006)

Why I don't bother with descriptions:

"Third and best yet from this amazing instrumental, post-Beefheart, avant-technical, improv-core, math-metal, art-damage, punk-rock power trio from Asheville, NC. Using the simple and classic skeleton of guitar, bass and drums, these three make powerful music that is undeniably 'rock' but is also undeniably much wider in musical influences than what one would imagine in such rock-based work."

The three full-length releases that I'm aware of. I've been putting off posting these because I couldn't find adequate album art. In a moment of clarity, I looked at their official website. Duh.

If you like Pocahaunted or anything Animal Collective released before Sung Tongs, you might enjoy this. Or just click the "buy it!" link below to preview two of their songs. Never trust comparisons.
