1.)Rome - "Flowers From Exile"
It is hard to believe that Rome was founded in Luxembourg just four short years ago in 2005. Since then, they have recorded and released some of the most critically acclaimed, innovative, and absolutely enduring succession of brilliant albums not only in the neofolk genre…

Yes, I do realize that it is April. Whatever.
1.) Rome - "Masse Mensch Material"
No other artist in any other genre that I listen to has recorded as much brilliant music over the last several years. With a level of innovative quality, raw and undiluted honesty, and a musical vision that is currently unmatched by any other artist I’ve heard recently, Rome has quickly become one of my most preferred listening experiences. Masse Mensch Material may not even be Rome’s finest release, but it is undoubtedly among the finest records I heard all year. Brilliant band.
“Masse Mensch Material”, the highly anticipated new release from Luxembourg’s Rome has finally risen upon hands. In less than a year after releasing the “Confessions d'un Voleur d'Âmes” album, Jerome Reuter and friends created their third full-length CD in a row. …

Feel free to post your thoughts and your own lists should the urge strike you.
1.) Corde Oblique - "Volonta d'Arte"
"Volonta d'Arte" was the single best record I heard in 2007, and it ranks with some of the best albums that I have ever heard in any genre, from any year. Prencipe is a rare and extraordinary virtuoso. With ever the most erudite ear, he is capable of orchestrating an atmosphere of impressive musicianship by coalescing it with the beautiful vocal, violin and lute supplements that are littered throughout the record. With Corde Oblique’s sophomore release, Prencipe has recorded what is very nearly a perfect album. …

undomondo radioshow is an eclectic show selecting old & new tracks ranging from avantjazz to electronica to folk & oddities
We have some moog covers by Jean-Jacques Perrey and later on The Moog Cookbook, cheerful Brasilian vibes from Nublu’s Forro in the Dark (which I’ll be featuring very soon), an interesting break where I played my favourite song from Terre Thaemlitz’ Lovebomb, which features the African National Congress’ declaration of war against the Apartheid regime played on top of The Plants’ textures and Krepulec’s martial piece. From then on we have a party vibe going with some urban hiphop/2step followed by dub and more dub, the last two tracks are special, the first is by Baba Zula one of the prominent turkish bands that you’ve got to know if you like dub, and the closer is a gem I found on a compilation called Zanzibara 2 (1965-1975 Golden years of Mombasa Taarab).
