New favorites include Here Come the Warm Jets, and Before and After Science, both are Brain Eno albums.
Edit: Just realized exactly how big my new signature is.
QuadraEdit: fixed that signature.

I love Here Come the Warm Jets, Before and After Science not so much. I tend to prefer Brian Eno's ambient work (especially Ambient 4: On Land), but Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) and Another Green World are also great. I'm not sure if you're aware, but Brian Eno is releasing a new album on Warp, and if you want you can Pre-Order the box set for $450.

I've been listening to Helicopter, a new song by Deerhunter.

His Apollo Ambiences are probably my favorite.
As for the box set, if I had enough money off hand to buy that, I would because I still have a record player.

Helicopter, while it has tons of meaning shoved in there, and some nice melody, feels somewhat shallower than other songs. Maybe thats intentional, maybe its minimalism. I don't know their process, but something just isn't happening with that song.

This year has been huge for Warp. Two records from Autechre, a record from flying lotus, and about 4 new big signups (Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Gonjasufi). Supposedly there is also going to be a Boards of Canada album soon, as well as an Aphex Twin album, a new album will be out soon for Brian Eno and another Flying Lotus album is coming out in a few days.

Plus a new album from Squarepusher coming out. A new Boards of Canada album would be great, especially after almost a 6 year break since their last full album. I heard that there was supposed to be an Aphex Twin album sometime this year, but I'm guessing that isn't going to happen, hopefully in 2011? Given what Brian Eno has released recently I'm not sure I'd want to invest that much in his new album, but I'm curious to see what comes from him with Warp.

I don't mind buying vinyl from Bleep as long as it's priced reasonably, especially since you get a digital copy of the album with any physical purchase, but even $99 is way more than I'm willing to pay for an album when the CD is $15.

I was sort of hoping that their new album would sound more like Microcastle initially, but Helicopter and Revival have grown on me a lot.

Speaking of cool new electronica, VHS Head is pretty great, one of the newest artists from Skam. He just released his first full length album, "Trademark Ribbons of Gold". My favorite song from it is probably this. This one is probably my current favorite of the album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6t-8yCKvZM...feature=related

*EDIT*

I was thinking about fixing the redundancy here, but it sounds like Wesley Willis, so I'm keeping it there.

I've never actually really checked out any skam artists (aside from Boards of Canada), but I'm really enjoying this. Also, since you mentioned Rustie earlier, I couldn't stop listening to this last night. I can't wait for Rustie's EP on Warp.

Actually, alot of Skam artists aren't very good (I think that with a few years of practice even I could strike a deal with them, and I plan on trying). VHS Head is pretty great, though. Rustie and Hudson Mohawke seem kind of alike, but Rustie seems a bit more promising ("Butter" wasn't that great).

By the way, did you ever start to like Cosmogramma, or did it not really hit it for you?

I listened to it a few more times and it still didn't really impress me, so I just listen to Los Angeles instead. I'm not sure if there's something others see in the album that I'm missing, but there are only a couple tracks on the album that I like much.

I really like Underworld! I am happy to know about them. I learned about them from you, thank you. It wasn't until after I heard some of their songs that I realized some of your maps are named after them, which is cool. Have you heard one of their new songs, Scribble?
