I've been listening to Sessions II by Tangerine Dream - ambient electronic music. I enjoy writing to it. These Sessions albums are made of live, improvised recordings, which actually hearken back to TDs roots in the '70s when all their concerts were improvised live. There are no original members left in the lineup, but I like how this next generation has recaptured the spirit of the early group.
Also on the turntable is Ottawa's Souljazz Orchestra's Rising Sun, one of their earlier and more jazzy efforts.
And Patrick Watson's Adventures in Your Own Back Yard from 2012 - I love the spaghetti-western-cabaret vibe and big cinematic arrangements. This feels like a full album - a vinyl storybook - not just a collection of songs. From the Allmusic review: "The digital age has not been kind to the LP, especially one that requires such patience, but listeners willing to devote an hour -- rather than a rushed five-minute scan of the first 30 seconds of each cut -- to this unassuming little gem will likely want to revisit it again and again."
