These albums encompass a diverse range of styles and composition methods, from ambient and avant-garde to electronica and pop.

WINTER GLOVES:ABOUT A GIRL (PAPER BAG)

The band's distinctive sound combines catchy melodies, driving beats, and a pleasantly retro vibe thanks to their vintage keys.

TELEPATHE:DANCE MOTHER (IAM SOUND)

Electronic dance music and dreamy vocals that reach both forward and back in time.

CRYPTACIZE:MYTHOMANIA (ASTHMATIC KITTY)

Inventive arrangements wrapped around stylish pop songwriting and vocals make this DIY recording a winner.

DANIEL LENTZ:POINT CONCEPTION (COLD BLUE)

Two absolutely gorgeous works for overdubbed acoustic pianos — one with four instruments and one with nine. For fans of Glass and Reich.

JON HASSELL:LAST NIGHT THE MOON CAME DROPPING ITS CLOTHES IN THE STREET (ECM)

Trumpeter Hassell weaves electronic and acoustic materials into a seamless, dreamlike fabric. Subtle and sensuous.
