While the group name isn't all that inventive or provacative The Cinematic Orchestra has been a favorite for quite some time. They are a jazz electronic outfit based out of the UK and are long time Ninja Tune staples. Every Day remains one of my favorite electronic downtempo jazz albums ever.

Their new album is a bit of a departure from their typical sound. The new record released on May 7th on Domino is not as heavily jazz influenced as their first three releases and almost has a more Air type quality to it. Take a listen to "To Build a Home" which is a fantastic opener.

Mp3: The Cinematic Orchestra with Patrick Wilson - "To Build a Home"

Buy: Pick up this record here. Highly recommended. The first single off the album is "Breathe."

K, you should see them live -- fantastic. In fact I have a live dub from when they performed in Vancouver a few years ago. Should I find it I'll upload it and let you know.

What I hear: Antony & the Johnsons + Jeff Buckley + Coldplay.

I'm gonna have to pick this one up.

the Jeff Buckley influence is 100% guest singer Patrick Watson. i highly, highly recommend his recent release called Close to Paradise. unbelievably good production, excellent voice, and good songwriting and backup talent to boot.
