Music For A Good Home 3 by Audioscope
The Seefeel track is pretty great, haven't listened to much else yet as I just finished DLing it from Bandcamp.
No samples on Bandcamp yet, but there are some short ones here:
The EP they put out earlier this year was fucking amazing. Here it is for those who haven't heard it:
The World As We Know It is an electronic album made in the absence of instruments. At the same time, it is a guitar/vocal album and entirely human. And so we have something of an anomaly.
Amon first recorded these songs during an isolated period in the woods of northern California. It was an exploratory process, much to do with learning about harmony and (relatively) traditional songwriting. A personal exorcism of sorts, he externalised an array of experiences and organised them into his own words.
At the time of writing what was to become Figueroa, Tobin had no particular ambitions for the work. Describing his singing voice as “a vague idea of what a voice might sound like,” the tracks remained personal as they sat in state for almost a decade after they were first scratched out in a cabin in the woods.
Eventually Amon sent the material to the legendary producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, Prince, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Johnny Cash, Annie Mac) hoping she might find someone who could perform the material. Sylvia was thrilled by the songs she heard. Rather than delegate them to polished musicians, she got on the next plane to LA and booked a session at the famous Capital Studios at Capitol Records in Hollywood for Amon to record the songs properly under her guidance. The result is The World As We Know It.
Is Figueroa psych-rock? Electronic folk? How is there guitar with no guitarist? We have no idea. It’s surprising and confounding. Sometimes it’s better not to ask questions and just listen to the music.

Apparently there is a new Amon Tobin album in the works!
As per his webpage "Album recording in progress so no tours scheduled. Watch this space for one off appearances but don't hold your breath"

PS does this qualify for a thread under new and upcoming releases or does there need to be an official announcement?
reed teh rules I know
I'm interested to see what he does after Isam, as that was a pretty big departure from his signature sound at least in my opinion.
