    staff from rocket girl, you have to listen to (aura), the debut is just fabulous: http://www.last.fm/music/(aura) or download it directly from Abutre Netlabel: www.abutre-netlabel.tk I believe you'll love it. It's a conceptual album - an imaginary soundtrack - inspired by a gorgeous photowork (the release features the photos). It is quite experimental and goes from Post/ instrumental rock, to classic music, electronica, atmospheric, etc...
