Post-Rock

Achingly gorgeous and hauntingly stark, Mark Hollis' self-titled debut picks up where he left off with Talk Talk's Laughing Stock seven years earlier, re-emerging at the nexus point where jazz, ambient, and folk music collide. It's quite possibly the most quiet and intimate record ever made, each song cut to the bone for maximum emotional impact and every note carrying enormous meaning.

Latin Rap

Neither as melancholy as 1977 nor as angry as La Bala, this is far more ambitious musically. Tijoux's music braids hip-hop cumbia, Andean folk, digital dub, brassy funk, soul, pop and jazz, or any combination she desires, placing them all at her command.
