Too Many Y's
Lymbyc Systym - Birds (zShare)
Lymbyc Systym - Truth Skull
Lymbyc Systym's debut full-length, Love Your Abuser, is out now on Mush Records. Despite the vaguely sadomasochistic implications of the title, these instrumentals are richly textured, tempo shifting pop. Particularly on "Birds," we find swelling percussion sections breathing life into simple keyboard melodies, creating songs that bloom and recede with seamless precision. If you like what you hear, Montreal's Hylozoists are making similarly serene instrumentals.

Also on Mush, a personal favorite track of mine:
Bibio - Zoopraxiphone
