Artists Without Buzz

Just a list of a few albums from some artists/musicians that I don't really see a lot of here on Sputnik, but that people should definitely check out.

Incredibly relaxing, ultra-chill electronica, not to mention the implementation of the always awesome harpsichord.
2The Bad Plus

For those who are into Jazz.
October Language

One of the more beautiful and memorable ambient-electronic albums I have in my library.
Megaton Shotblast

Omar + Cedric + Ikey = really mellow reggae
Raising Your Voice... Trying to Stop an Echo

One of the most overlooked post rock releases in the past year or so.
6Marsen Jules
Les Fleurs

Because everything I have heard from him is always vibrant and gorgeous, though I enjoy this album particularly.
7The Mercury Program
A Data Learn the Language

Probably one of the albums I've listened to the least but definitely some worthwhile post rock for those who are into the genre.
8Mice Parade

Some more post rock with a percussionist as the creative force behind it all, some interesting stuff certainly worth listening to.
9Neon Blonde
Chandeliers in the Savannah

For those who like the Blood Brothers (and even those who don't know them), it's Johnny Whitney and Mark Gajadhar's side project. Way less intensified than the Blood Brothers, and somewhat bizarre, but in a pleasant way.

Two guitars, one drummer, mathy fun.
11Port Royal

While it's more keyboard oriented, this is probably my first ever experience with any kind of post rock. I picked this album up randomly a couple years back when doing some listening for my school's radio station and it just blew me away.
12The Samuel Jackson Five
Easily Misunderstood

If not for the name alone, these guys are one of my favorite post rock bands I've heard.
13Stars of the Lid
The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid

Sleepy, dreamy ambient-electronic music (kind of like the album name implies). Some really good stuff though, even if it does sort of lull you into a trance.

Piano-centered, almost minimalist approach consisting of two people combining electronic and live instrumentation. Very cool and expressive.
15Tim Hecker

Because its really hard to ignore something that is regarded as "an ambient-death-metal classic in the making." Seriously though, an incredibly intense ambient record.
Harmonic Tremors

Basically because metalheads need to listen to something other than shredtastic, riff-heavy clones. For anyone who's a fan of (especially early) Cave In.
