Some easy midweek listening. No techno, electro or disco in sight.

Wermland is the new release from Gothenburg's Detektivbyran. I can't believe it's been 2 years since their debut EP Hemvagen, a release which sent me into raptures with its Yann Tiersen-esque melodies. Lovely stuff.

Question Mark were around in the mid '70s, hailing from Kenya, they released 'Be Nice To The People' in 1974. It was a very western influenced psychadelic record. Shadoks have subsequently re-released it.

He's possibly best known for creating the Miami Vice theme tune, but 10 years prior to that Jan Hammer produced a concept album entitled The First Seven Days. It's got some lovely moments.

Experimental folk man David Thomas Broughton teams up with Chris Casati for this dreamy electronic gem that is available as an EP on Plug Research.

Fordlandia is the follow up to the superb IBM 1401 A User's Manual by Jóhann Jóhannsson. It is contemporary classical at its very finest.

Then there is Treny by Jacaszek. It sounds pretty close to what you would hear on one of Kompakt's annual Pop Ambient compilations, or perhaps more specifically, Klimek. A great album.
