Simon, both of these labels look (and sound) really cool. I'm off to work, but will check them out when I get home. Thanks!

Bjork - Vulnicura... I've never been compelled to buy a Bjork album before (though I did eventualy buy Biophilia) but I kept coming back to the samples, and had to have it. A heartbreak/break-up album... misery often makes for the best work :)

The Unthanks - Mount the Air... More dark folk from the Unthank sisters, although, there are some airy jazz elements here. The odd breathy vocals are an acquired taste, but I love them.

35 Whirlpools Below Sound... film composer Thomas Newman and collaborator Rick Cox team-up for this album on Cold Blue Music ... http://www.coldbluemusic.com/pages/CB0040.html

I'm a huge fan of Newman... esp. his more organic (in collaboration with Cox and others) improvised material. He is a genius at provoking the emotions through sound.

This album is quite strident and textural, but lacks the emotional hooks of his soundtrack material.

Good stuff none the less.

Quite an eclectic mix if I do say so myself... ;-)

Jenny Hval & Susanna: Meshes Of Voice

Switches from ambient pieces through noise to mysterious voices. Think Laurie Anderson, Anja Garbarek, Björk, Kate Bush and of course Susanna's own beautiful albums. I noticed Hval also released her own music, but I haven't heard it.

a-ha..... 'Cast in Steel'. Some good stuff on it, if a little lacking in the power of their early work.

Plus the tracks released from David Gilmour's forthcoming solo album 'Rattle that Lock'... very much looking forward to the full LP.
