Nurse with Wound "Rock 'n' Roll Station"

This record seems to fuse spoken word with hip hop, but of course with this awkward NWW touch attached to it. Think of Saul Williams making musique concrète while improvising lyrics and shouting them. This would be far more strange than that thought of yours (if you could imagine it, at least). I can imagine why Steven Stapleton made a record like this: because of his hip hop fascination (particularly Snoop Dogg, I presume).
The track list is the following:
Rock 'n Roll Station 6:38

Written-By - Jacques Berrocal* , Vince Taylor
The Self Sufficient Sexual Shoe 5:53
Two Golden Microphones 17:03
A Silhouette And A Thumbtack (Dance In Hyperspace) 9:56
R+B Through Collis Brone 5:52
Finsbury Park, May 8th, 1:35 pm (I'll See You In Another World) 13:01

I highly recommend this album.

Below, I included a live video of Jean-Hervé Péron from FAUST performing along with Steven Stapleton. The song featured here is "Rock 'n Roll Station" (a bizarre spoken-word song, kind of reminds me an experimental hip-hop side):

Caribou "Swim"

While diving deep into this sea of sounds, I realize how Daniel Snaith, Caribou's mastermind, has this peculiar gift of turning every sound into something catchy and audible. Like if most found sounds were turned into a beat taken away from a pop song.
Let's say this album has been reviewed by most music critics, magazines and other "trustful" sources above 80% in average. It's a must.
It is his first new album of material since 2008 Polaris Music Prize-winning Andorra.

The track list is the following:
  1. "Odessa" – 5:15
  2. "Sun" – 5:44
  3. "Kaili" – 4:41
  4. "Found Out" – 3:18
  5. "Bowls" – 6:20
  6. "Leave House" – 5:11
  7. "Hannibal" – 6:14
  8. "Lalibela" – 2:25
  9. "Jamelia" – 3:58
My favourite tracks are: Odessa, Bowls and Jamelia.

Below is Odessa's videoclip:
