Dustin Koontz It can take a while to dig through his backlog but there always seems to be some gems I discover periodically. This is one of them. Crossing a lot of styles this combines different female vocalists w/ (largely) more sparse instrumental offerings. Less to the ambient, psych, & drone sides, and closer to stripped down singer/songwriter stuff with some unique spins and influences that occasionally bring it back to those genres I mentioned but more bare bones. Just listen to it and see what I mean. Favorite track: Mélusine.

Scott Weinberg Talk about entering another world. I played this daily for weeks when I first downloaded. Had to force myself to stop as I was forgetting to feed or clean myself. Favorite track: Ice.

JLAbad Intelligent, experimental and very interesting post-rock album with female vocals. An author who needs to be followed more closely. Amazing. Favorite track: Mélusine.


An album of ethereal post-rock, something of a song-cycle, taking inspiration from various myths and folktales about female water spirits, with guest vocalists on each track. Released on CD & LP from Gizeh Records:
