BBC Brian Eno - Another Green World

Eno has given Arena unprecedented access to observe him working in his studio and talking with friends and colleagues. The master of reinvention engages with fellow influential minds, including Richard Dawkins, Malcolm Gladwell, David Whittaker and Steve Lillywhite, in a series of conversations on science, art, systems analysis, producing and cybernetics.

Slavescene - Heaven Only Knows Cassette (2009)

I know that this is a pretty old release but I seriously haven't stopped listening to it for almost a year. If you haven't gotten a hold of this yet I implore you to do so. Absolutely fucked-up Drunkdriverish stuff with a bit more structure.
Released by Cult Material SOLD OUT

Puerto Rico Flowers - 4 12" (2010)

John Sharkey III from Clockclean Er recorded these four tracks that sound like super bass driven new/dark wave jams but according to the Fan Death site they claim that it's "Slow songs not unlike a skinhead crying." You be the judge.
