I'm looking forward to it, but I'm definitely hoping for some electronic elements.

I've only heard a couple things by them, but you're right. Only about a quarter of those went down the trip hop road

Their first three albums have a lot of trip hop elements (the older the album, the more trip hop).

My personal suggestion is "Weather". It's kind of on the poppy side, but it's the perfect blend of trip-hop and pop.

No, it's not like that style is represented on the radio or anything. I'd suggest Daughter Darling - Sweet Shadows, Massive Attack - Mezzanine, and Portishead - Dummy as good places to start.

No problem. There's a review for that album (Weather) so if you do check it out post there and let me know what you think. If you do like Lunik I'd suggest you listen to that Daughter Darling album too.

I'm no expert on the genre at all but Endtroducing by DJ Shadow is amazing!

Yeah, as far as instrumental trip hop goes that's a great place to start. Something similar to that is Blue Sky Black Death - Late Night Cinema and PSY/OPSogist - Suffused With Static

Unkle is classic trip-hop. Pysence Fiction is essential.

Cool. The album Dreams recommended is instrumental and the three I suggested (in my original response to you) have vocals so you may like one style and not the other.

Edit: Oops, that's to ScorpionStan...

There's a lot of good trip-hop albums out there, but there are definitely a lot of duds too. I've found a lot of good stuff through last.fm recommendations (and a few users' lists here).

I honestly think Lovage - Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady by is my favorite trip hop album, Jennifer's vocals are sexy, the duo songs with Patton are perfect and Dan's DJ tracks are great too, plus the interludes which are hilarious.

Never heard of Lovage, will have to check them out... and reccomend last.fm to all that do not use it.

Yeah, Prophet... you're different today. Haircut maybe?

yeah everyone here should rock last.fm. Heard a few tracks from Lovage as I dig the Patton, but haven't heard anything from this band. Will give it a look, got a few buddies trying to break me into the genre

Like I warned the other guy, this band is more poppy than your average trip hop group, and only their first three albums are trip-hop.... a little less trip-hop and a little more pop with each subsequent album (and none starting with the fourth album).
