the three he released under his own name recently are album of the year but 3 hours is not enough
Was listening to some of it last night. It's excellent - none of the haunted ballroom kind of thing (though I think I there are a couple of tracks where it's buried deep deep beneath drones and static) - very immersive. Great bath music!
There's a Nadja/Kodiak split out soon as well which sounds equally good (http://denovali.com/kodiaknadja/
I'm just listening to World's End Girlfriends Air Doll soundtrack as well, which is less soundscapey but really very nice. I'd recommend that.
Perfect ambient dub mixed with the sound of rain, truly beautiful stuff.
Fieldhead - http://www.myspace.com/fieldhead (dark, ambient, drone)
Max Richter - Any album (pianos and violin, good to cuddle up in bed with a book music)
"Songs For The Broken Hearted"
there's stuff about it somewhere on kranky.net
no-one does drone rock like W&C! perfect winter music
Abstract, jazzy electronic soundscapes that sound like being surrounded in a strangely comforting forest of ice crystals.
still manages to make walking down a frozen pathway seem eerily perfect. Also:
James Blackshaw - The Glass Bead Game(gorgeous orchestral soundscapes based mainly around a plucked 12 string guitar)
is needed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy, you could try Trouble Books. Last LP is streamable here. http://www.last.fm/music/Trouble+Books/The+United+Colors+of+Trouble+Books
Stars Of the Lid
to name but a few of that kind of sound.
Go on there website and go to the mixes and d/l toomanyduvets! beautiful mix including sigur ros, mum etc
But balls to it.
Anything by Tindersticks, and The Kingbury Manx's first two albums (Kingsbury Manx and Let You Down)
