Another musical discovery for 2012 is the Finnish band Cassie. The band is probably classified as ambient rock. Cassie's debut album is Sing about me.
To my mind there are some similarities to Sigur Ros in the ambient nature of their songs, they also bring Portishead to mind.
What I love about the Cassie at the moment is the purity and expressiveness of their singer's voice, against the expansive nature of the music.
If you're looking for some new music, Cassie is definitely one to listen to. Again, you can download the album via Noisetrade.
