Asian Women on the Telephone

 Asian Women on the Telephone (also abbreviated as AWOTT) are a self-proclaimed "Dada Rock" band from Moscow, Russia. Noisy, angular, semi-(or fully) improvised, artsy-fartsy, FUN. You can listen to their albums (and download them for free) on their Bandcamp page. Recommended for fans of, say, early Magik Markers or more chaotic moments of Sunburned Hand of the Man.

Brother Raven

Brother Raven is a Seattle-based synth duo formed in 2008 consisting of Jamie Potter and Jason E. Anderson (who is also a founder of quality label Gift Tapes). Brother Raven play vintage, somewhat new-agey ambient compositions. My current musical obsession. Recommended!

VSS 30 (link taken down by request)

Jason of Brother Raven requested me to take down links to two albums that can still be purchased on vinyl: "Diving Into the Pineapple Portal" on Aguirre Records and "VSS 30" on Digitalis Recordings.

Bee Mask - Living's Just Defying the Ocean

(not the actual cover art)

The first album by Chris Madak from Cleveland, released back in 2006 on his own label Deception Island. Definitely a highlight in his music career, "Living" offers four shimmering ambient/drone compositions with lenghts between 13 and 21 minutes. Drown yourself in sound. Higly recommended.
