    I don't know the first two, but Jens and Morning Jacket are good stuff. Might have to buy the albums on itunes. Although I just bought two the other day - Bon Iver's ep blood bank and Dark was the Night compilation (done by Red Hot and Blue organisation - including Grizzly Bear, Jose Gonzales, Bon Iver).

    Cutter,

    Actually, just noticed that Iron and Wine do a cover on the Dark was the Night compilation. Sounds good, but only goes for 1min and 7 secs.

    How much?

    I generally hate vocals of any kind. Only a couple of bands sneak through, especially if they sing in Icelandic and I can't understand what they're saying.

    I was in a pop band for a while (don't ask) and I reached pop music saturation point one day about 13 years ago.

    Are you familiar with Jeffrey Koepper? No, he's not a new signing for the Stormers but a guy that creates electonic music using the old 80's technology. If you like Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk etc, you'll like this. Given that his http://www.jeffreykoepper.com home page is entitled Electronic Ambience, I'm guessing it might be your thing.

    Wow, that takes me back. More like Future Sound of London or early Aphex Twin without the tangled breakbeats. A lot like some of Eno's Music for Films, too.

    Iron and Wine is just one bloke. He's good though.

    The Frames are brilliant. The Swell Season is the lead singer of the Frames singing with a classically trained Czech pianist and vocalist, Marketa Irglova. Both are superb.

    I like them. Which album would you recommend I get first?

    Now, the question is how do we get Scarfy to like something that has vocals? This is my mission.

    How about Arcade Fire, Scarfy?

    I like Bjork as well, but she is a freakin lunatic. As for the Radiohead remix - starts off good, goes down hill. So basically the good part is the bit that is closest to the original.

    You need to get out more.

    Well, we do agree on Sigur Ros.

    I'll check out battles later.

    Oh Mr crazy scarf, you have a very loose concept of 'vocals'. I have just listened to some of Battles - nice bass and beat, terrible lead guitar and the 'singing' disturbs me. The start of Atlas reminds me a Marilyn Manson, the rest of it makes me think of mind control.

    Will I kill someone later tonight?

    Ok, I'll try again. How about The Middle East, band from Townsville:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSKrrMb9bnE

    Give it a few minutes. Sorry that it isn't as repetitive as you'd like.

    If we want to agree on electronic music, you'd probably have to meet me at Chemical Brothers or Faithless. Or maybe the Bristol scene stuff - Massive Attack or Portishead?

    Another one to try is Fever Ray. Seems as though it could be up your alley?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4F-CpE73o2M

    M83?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bzge5vY72hE

    Midlake?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDL9bXlwbM4

    Or the ambient stuff from Aphex Twin?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z4cLmbw6q0

    That is about all I've got Scarfy. If you don't like any of them, then I'm out of options.

    One of these reasons I hate pop music is the sincerity. I have just no way at all of connecting with whatever lyrics are presented in The Middle East and so it is to me just an annoying whine. I would rather listen to aircraft noise.

    I have no good reason to not like Fever Ray or The Knife, except that it's pop music. There's something tragic about the effort pop music goes to - like a fashion victim failing to hide their need to be liked. I like it as much as Battles - so, good pick. I don't actually own any of Battles's music, though.

    Midlake sounds like almost exactly like Fleetwood Mac. Is that deliberate? He's not making much impression on that log, though. Spit on the palms and get stuck in, son.

    I had already checked out M83 on Hype Machine but it didn't quite take, even though I am a francophile. I already lived throgh the 80s, you know.

    Aphex? Of course, I love RDJ. I listen to him probably more than any other artist. Your stock is rising.

    Thanks for the effort. It strikes me that would like the whole post-rock / math-rock scene. You know, like Tortoise or Yo La Tengo.

    They sound exactly like Steve Rieich for a few minutes arounf 8:00. And the best thing? No vocals!

    Just jumped into my head: you might like Matmos (who have worked with Bjork a lot) or Boards of Canada.
