- Favourite albums:

1. Massive Attack - Heligoland






2. Bonobo - Black Sands






3. Valgeir Sigurðsson - Draumalandið



I bought this album right after the phenomenal Whale Watching Tour (Ben Frost | Nico Muhly | Sam Amidon | Valgeir Sigurðsson with Una Sveinbjarnardóttir & Borgar Magnason) concert in Berlin.

Draumalandið is the soundtrack to an icelandic documentary about the exploitation of Iceland's natural resources of the same name.
Amongst others, the score features Valgeir's collaborators and Bedroom Community labelmates Ben Frost, Sam Amidon and Nico Muhly.
This leads to a very wide instrumentarium (for example, combining electronic sounds with hauting string sections and banjo) while still managing to keep a coherent overall sound.

The album can be streamed in full lenght on his bandcamp page: http://valgeir.net/album/draumalandi

Check out an amazing live performance of one of my favourite tracks of the album, Past Tundra: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QD7pNCLoGFw



4. El Trío de Omar Rodriguez Lopez - Ciencia de los Inútiles




Official video of Miércoles which captures the mood of the album perfectly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAdI3qoQ5xU



5. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - Kollaps Tradixionales






6. Ólafur Arnalds - …And They Have Escaped The Weight Of Darkness / Endalaus






7. The Album Leaf - A Chorus of Storytellers

There is also a very beautiful, but in my opinion overpriced vinyl box-set, too: http://www.visions.de/community/forum/post/69216
