I will second mentions of Mountains, Pelt, Echospace, and William Basinski.
I would add Ariel Kalma's Osmose and anything by Zomes (solo project of Asa Osborne, ex-guitarist of Lungfish).

@3 Considered including Gong, but there's a lot of English and Australian in their French.
Oct 7, 2010 Segal commented on Death.
I was living in the Detroit area when Death were in existence, and nobody in my circles knew about them—plus, not even Creem magazine, as far as I know, ever profiled them. Detroit radio never played Death's music, either.

Awesome, Izzie. I interviewed Headrillaz for a feature in, what, '97?

That first Death In Vegas album is still golden, too.

Jason: Killing Frenzy tried to plan his visuals with OPN, but the former said the latter never really got back to him with a strategy—which makes KF's performance all the more impressive.

Rafael Anton Irisarri (the Sight Below) joined Fennesz on guitar for the encore.

Seattle artist Killing Frenzy did OPN's visuals, and I agree that they were the highlight of the showcase.

This post contains much truth.
Aug 27, 2010 Segal commented on Eighties and Nineties Hip Hop for a Wedding?.
LL Cool J never swore in his classic '80s and '90s tracks, so load up on those (esp "Big Ole Butt" and "I'm That Type of Guy").
