I've been getting into this sort of thing again, mainly in need of a soundtrack for sunny dog-walks by the river near where I live - my usual listening habbits of dubstep/techno stuff don't really cut it, so yeh who are people's favourites, who would you recommend? I'm thinking pastoral, woody, organic sort of stuff.
I've been enjoying Sam Amidon's I See The Sign, Joanna Newsom's Have One on Me, and Bill Callahan's Sometimes I Wish I Were An Eagle and Alasdair Roberts's Spoils, which is a bit literate and complex but great.
and as always big up Kath Bloom ;)
and of course Richard Youngs is the bossman.
