#18 Chris Zabriskie - I Am a Man Who Will Fight for Your Honor

Zabriskie used to make solo folk music that was, in my opinion, pretty terrible. This year he seems to have found his niche, pushing out 3 ambient full-lengths within the span of 7 months. From listening to the first few seconds of the opening track, I picked up a huge Eluvium influence. In fact, most of his tracks could easily pass as a Cooper album if the id3 tags were labeled wrong. Although this irks me, I can never get enough of this sound. Piano, swells, just beautiful stuff.
