Xploding Plastix - Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents (2001)

My sincerest apologies for my month long absence! I hope that no one was upset (and that no one noticed). Anyhoo, here's some delicious jazz/electronica from the country that brought you Jaga Jazzist. But unlike, say," A Livingroom Hush," Amateur Girlfriends..." focuses less on groovy beats and mellow horns in favor of upbeat piano and strings accompanied by frenetic (and incredibly varied) percussion. Very, very enjoyable.

    If you like this then I recommend Flashbulb to you, generally more glitchy and incorporating a larger amount of break beats, but similair sound nonetheless.

    Wow, I'm loving this album so far. Currently on 6-Hours Starlight, but it really seems to incorporate all of the right elements of jazz and electronica perfectly. This is great music to just chill to.

    it reminds of me the cinematic orchestra a tiny bit. more electronics, but fantastic soundscape nonetheless.

    many thanks for the Flashbulb recommendation :)
