Simon Booth Boris & SUNN O))) bring out the best in each other (see also: Ensemble Pearl). Who'd have thought such a collaboration could produce a song as lovely as The Sinking Belle? Favorite track: The Sinking Belle (Back Sheep).

Eve McGivern I picked up the massive 3-disc green vinyl (used) on a record shopping trip and slipped this onto my turntable. After the initial mess of stuffing my brain back into my head, I decided I needed to hear this in a more portable fashion.

Scrivener ð This might be my favorite album. Unparalleled cohesion of disparate parts; the deepest immersion into the black woods, all full of beauty and terror. Favorite track: Etna.
