Xploding Plasticx - Amateur Girlfriends Go Proskirt Agents (2001)

Those Norwegians love their electronica-infused nu-jazz, don't they? Well, they do a damn good job. This duo takes a more straightforward jazz approach than their brothers-in-arms, Jaga Jazzist. They seamlessly fuse technology and old-time jazz feel into one beautiful fusion record. It also seems hip-hop inspired at times, using various samples, break beats and make it sound like youre spinning an old LP. Definitely worth a listen. Norway rules.
