    Was listening to Ultramega OK for the same reason.

    Love Talkin All That Jazz. That Liston Smith sample is awesome.

    @Audley Strange
    Agitation Free's Malesch is a personal favourite

    Boomkat's Best of 2009 compilation.
    All 9 hours of it.

    Zelienople - Give It Up.
    Had this for ages but ignored until last night. Vast improvement over previous Type release. Xela\Grouper\Deaf Center hybrid - i.e. Ambient buzz with vaguely audible vocal drifting over it. Shoegazer-fare.

    Laura Veirs - Carbon Glacier
    In anticipation of new album July Flame coming out next week.

    Ihsahn - AngL
    Mostly because it's an immense album, but also because he's got a new album out Jan 21 as well. Called 'After' apparently.
