Ripley from Wooden Shjips and Sanae who, I believe, is his significant other. 2 new excellent CDs, OCCULT ARCHITECTURE, volumes 1&2, one's a little heavier, one's a little mellower, they are both excellent. Another band with a stellar discography (much like Wooden Shjips, interestingly enough). They've been more prolific that the Shjips these past few years, for whatever that's worth. Can't recommend these 2 releases enough.
