Jacques Dutronc – 36 Grands Succes (1995)

Nice 2-CD compilation culled from the flamboyant French pop star’s late-60s albums. Most of this stuff is reminiscent of Dylan/Kinks garage rock, but some of the tunes (like the popular “Il est cinq heure, Paris s’eveille”) are done in the French Chanson style.

Disc 1:
Disc 2:

Kaito – Hundred Million Light Years (2006)

Beautiful ambient/techno album. Minimal kick-drum percussion and wave upon wave of cascading synths and guitars. Very relaxing. (pt1)

Edan – Beauty and the Beat (2005)

One of my favourite recent hip hop albums. Hazy but intricate beats and tripped-out, surreal lyrics.
