This seems like a hip thing to do so I'm going to do it.

My first rec is an album that's in the running for my favorite release of the year, Noir by Blue Sky Black Death. I don't know this forum very well so I don't know if BSBD has been passed around, but they're a Seattle-based trip hop/instrumental hip hop duo who I think are a couple of the most talented producers around. In my opinion, Noir tops their last great trip hop release called Late Night Cinema (2008).

They're quite popular in the trip hop crowd so I won't be surprised if it's nothing new to anybody here, but another good (and relatively unknown) Seattle trip hop group that has a similar sound is The New Law. Their album High Noon (2009) is really fluid and moving. They have a new album in progress that I'm really excited to hear.
