A highly atmospheric comfort blanket of a listen SulaMadiana by Mino Cinelu and Nils Petter Molvær has a largely borderless sound that bypasses notions of genre for the large part, that achey effortlessly mysterious sounding NPM painterly sound matching perfectly with the deft percussive ideas of the ex-Miles Davis player Cinelu. The album title takes its name from Sula, the island off the west coast of Norway where Molvær is from, and Madiana, a synonym for Martinique, where Cinelu's father comes from. The album pays tribute to Manu Dibango, Tony Allen and Jimmy Cobb along the way. Out on Modern/BMG.

Krononaut's self titled debut has a futuristic sci-fi feel to it, an often times sparse, electronic coated ambient world that uses the language of jazz and much else for its effects and has a certain loose prog spaciousness and plenty of power to it. With Brian Eno guitarist Leo Abrahams and Spin Marvel drummer Martin France at its core with quite a bunch of interesting collaborators from various backgrounds playing their part on a number of tracks and who include Tim Harries, Shahzad Ismaily, Matana Roberts and Arve Henriksen this is an album big on texture and mood but patient listening is required as the sometimes patchy material is less than gripping.
