Obsessed with the latest Bonnie Prince Billy Wolfroy Goes to Town (Drag City, 2011). I used to be a great admirer of the man, but kinda let it go around 2007, when he started releasing tons of live material and I got tired of all my folk/country/americana records. I gave this album a try and thought it was superb. Perfect "by the fireplace" record. The recording just suits the songs so well to me : beautiful tone, perfect source distance and a warm yet delicate presence. Also dug out my "Ask Forgiveness" EP, made out of covers (R Kelly, Sinatra, Bjork, etc.).
Alva Noto - Xerrox Vol.2 (Raster-Noton, 2009) -> Loving it a lot more than then when it was released.
Lambchop - Nixon (2000) -> Classic.
Puzzle Muteson - En Garde (Bedroom Community, 2011) -> Interesting, intimate yet intense and touching folk release.
Simon Scott - Bunny (Miasmah, 2011) -> One of my fav' for 2011
John Adams - Shaker Loops -> Thanks to the feature film "Io Sono l'Amore" which uses excerpts of this a lot.
Thundercat - The Golden Age of Apocalypse (Brainfeeder, 2011) -> Very interesting anti hifi production, but not lo-fi, fresh&groovy.
Pasture - Composite -> I really dig the sound of this one, like a cassette dream.
François Couperin - various harpsichord pieces from late 17th/early 18th century.
And a lot of Actress and HTRK.
