Lisa Gerrard's new album The Silver Tree is out and looks to be promising. Ms. Gerrard is the woman behind the duo Dead Can Dance. If you like atmospheric music with old world instruments, you might want to check it out. I checked out the samples and downloaded one song (cause I just had to have it right then). The song I got was in my opinion the best sounding, titled Space Weaver. Her voice is beautiful, haunting and spiritual. Most of the Dead Can Dance albums I own are on vinyl which I still need to replace. I have a few on CD. There is one massive collection of their work out now which I might just get.

Overlooked? I have been meaning to get Chris Corner's work. He's the man behind the band Sneaker Pimps. Their last album Bloodsport was less electro than previous releases (which I still enjoyed), but Chris kind of gets back to form in his two releases The Alternative and Kiss + Swallow. Both worth getting.

So this is my wish list and I can't get them all at once. I have to consider Junior Boys too as well as Depeche Mode's Live in Milan.
