Experimental Electronic

Peeping Tom is too fastidiously crafted to be a mere middle finger aimed at the mainstream music scene. Look a little deeper, and you'll notice that Patton seems to be poking fun at himself as well, pointing out that the cult acclaim and indie cred he's garnered in his own corner of the industry are really no more meaningful than the commercially driven teen pop stardom that's so often thought to be his very antithesis.

British Folk

Thirty-six years after her acclaimed 1969 debut, the British folk singer followed up with this album, produced by composer and atmosphere impresario Max Richter. Despite many collaborators, including Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsome, and Robert Kirby (who arranged the strings on her first record as well as Nick Drake's albums), Bunyan's voice and songs are always center stage.
