    I saw Tommy Emmanuel mentioned; Lewis & Clark is a gorgeous track of his from The Mystery. Dude has a touch like Chet Atkins (with whom he collaborated on a fun little album). On a related note, I also like Buckethead's album Electric Tears and its sequel Electric Sea for a similar melancholy or elegiac vibe.

    Carrying on with instrumentals, I enjoy Ryuichiro Senoh's harmonica pieces from Cowboy Bebop, especially Digging My Potato. Blues harp music pokes at m'heart pretty effectively, but that track really gets to me for sentimental reasons... and makes me feel old! If you like it, you might check out the legendary Adam Gussow's deconstructive educational videos on Digging My Potato (introduction ends at 2:20 ish; cant figure out timestamping for embeds):



    His other videos and his writing are all good for anyone interested in the instrument or the wider genre. And for giggles, this wikipedia article is amazing:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Cowboy_Bebop

    I've been immersing myself in the Hotline Miami album recently, too. Bathing in it, you might say. Tracks 2-4 by M.O.O.N. are just... really nice. Especially the last one, Crystals. The bass is just right, and there's just enough of a groove for it to melt into background or be actively listenable. For some reason it calls to mind Osborne's Wait a Minute, which is a far funkier thing. Hm.

    And finally, I've been listening to a good bit of the Butthole Surfers of late as well. Their crazy on-stage antics were before my time, but included dolphin vivisection videos and shotguns and drum kits coated in claiming liquids which would end up catching bits of the stage on fire. Drugs. As Marc Maron said, the best one can do is, "Just hang on, man!"

    Run the Jewels.

    Collaboration between El-P and Killer Mike. It's good stuff. Full of the usual rap bragging but so over the top it moves into so ridiculous it's funny territory. Plus the beats are great. Seem to keep coming back to it, a rare thing for this area of rap for me (usually prefer more laid back stuff or things that are heavy on funk.soul samples), so it must be good!

    It's free so you might as well download and give it a whirl - http://foolsgoldrecs.com/runthejewels/

    I'd normally err on the side of never messing with The Beatles but this does it for me.

    A friend introduced me to Tim Hecker recently (although he might also have featured on the Sunday Papers a while back) and I've been enjoying it a lot. She also recommended Christian Fennesz who does something similar but with a guitar:

    Oh yeah, Fennesz is super excellent for that texturey/soundscapey thing. Venice and Endless Summer are beautiful albums. You might also get a kick out of Oval, Stars of the Lid (less abrasive, more orchestral) and The Fun Years -- baritone guitar and record player through various devices. Very talented guys and Sosolimited didi some amazing live video work for them:



    I think the first RPS article I read covered Sins of a Solar Empire. One of the writers mentioned turning on Mogwai before embarking on an epic space battle, and I thought, "I'm going to like it here."

    I got a similar feeling when Jim took over the Sunday Papers. I find Jim to be a highly contemplative, almost melancholy personality, and he generally links to highly-textural ambient kinds of music.

    Apparently we can't embed SoundCloud here (!!!) so this must suffice as an example:

    I really like that track.

    The Sunday Papers have had a traceable impact on my music listening habits.

    Yeah!

    Experimental Audio Research - D.M.T. Symphony (Overture To An Inhabited Zone)


    From 1994 so it's more on the analogue side of things.

    Those intermittent beepy peaks are delightful. Anticipation builds and builds and then YES! Release.

    First came across that track (and the hook in question) in Kirby Ferguson's Everything is a Remix, which is a well-produced 4-part webseries about creativity and copyright/patent law.
