Susumu Yokota - Grinning Cat (2001)

Impressed at how contemporary this sounds, apart from the odd trip-hop/boom-bap beat every now and then... 

Piano sounds, jazz guitar, voices coming out of left field, everything you'd want from this departed master of the space between house and ambient. I'm hearing the groundwork of Ahnnu (World Music) and Nerftoss in this.

Fred Neil - Bleecker and MacDougal (1965)

I love this man's baritone, and the tremelo'd-out, wistful sound of a song like "The Water is Wide." Enjoy this and keep cool out there, folks.
