Jrowa001 Gives You These Gems Part 1

its summer time and i have a lot of free time to listen to albums or discover new bands. since my list "dig" list i have come across quite a few gems. here is part 1 of 2 lists that will showcase some new stuff you all should look into. i know most of my lists are mostly metal, but i have been on a huge ambient, post-rock, and electronica binge. theres still some good metal thrown in. please take a chance to look into these album or discuss them
1 A-fei

electonica. a very well done album. for fans of Boards of Canada. cool album art too
2Aes Dana

celtic folk metal with harsh vocals. the celtic music has an airy sound and adds a nice atmosphere
The Sea Horse Limbo

4Azeda Booth
In Flesh Tones

drum and bass with post-rock elements
One Planet Short of the Sun

stoner rock
6Ben Woods
A Collection of Thoughts

ambient. he creates a very calm and earthly album
7Black Cab
Jesus East

lo-fi/indie. cool album art and dreamy music
8Blood Ceremony
Blood Ceremony

a stoner rock group with some traditional doom influences. female vocalist who also handles the flute and keyboards. a solid band from Canada
Morning Wood

hard rock. sexy stuff
10The Cinematic Orchestra
Every Day

acid jazz or nu jazz. whatever they call it. essential album in the genre
The Golden Morning Breaks

a wonderful happy ambient album that is perfect for the morning. some reason the album art would upload

post-rock. starts off with a mindblowing 23 minute song
13Deaf Center
Pale Ravine

one of the most dark yet beautiful albums i have ever heard. a haunting blend of ambient and modern classical music. a must have
14The Devil and the Sea
Heart Vs. Spine

sludge metal

prog rock. female vocals. this is also has the brother of Daniel Gildenlow (of Pain of Salvation)
16Division By Zero
Tyranny of Therapy

prog. metal
17Dolores O Riordan
Are You Listening?

solo album of lead singer of The Cranberries. Balls forced me into listening to this, but im glad he did. her voice is amazing. a few songs are a bit too poppy for me but its a great album
18Doug Burr
On Promenade

folk, singer/songwriter. chill stuff
Trying Got Us Nowhere

electronic pop with some trip-hop stuff. female vocals
Gravitational Control System

prog. metal. vocals are good but the harsh vocals are kind of bad at times. instrumentals are good
21Emiliana Torrini
Me and Armini

her new album and its pretty damn good.
22 Frank Zappa

my second fav Zappa album behind Hot Rats
23Gentlemans Pistols
Gentlemans Pistols

hard rock. really fun album
24Giovanni Sollima

multi-instrumental, modern classical. wow. thats all i can say about this album. Giovanni is the man. i absolutely love this album. has some really cool spoen word passages as well

avant-gard, prog metal. this is really hard to explain. the instrumentals are beyond amazing. their are a male and female vocalist. individually they are great but when combined they sound really bad. but thats the only down side, but luckily they only combine their vocals sometimes.
26 Hanne Hukkelberg
Rykestrasse 68

indie. she has a very calm voice that is mostly in the background. a relaxing album thats great to sleep too
27Haruka Nakamura

lo-fi with some electronic pop influences

electronica with post-rock influences. a gorgeous album. one of my favs
29Hellas Mounds
The Last Ferry to Cydonia

post-rock. this album mixes calm post-rock with crashing melodies. a wonderful blend
30Heol Telwen
An Deiz Ruz

celtic folk metal. my second fav album on this list. is probably in my top 10 folk metal albums now
