Bjork - Medulla

I am amazed by the little I've heard of Bjork's latest album, Medulla. The album is comprised almost exclusively of vocals. Including Japanese beatboxer Dokaka, Inuit throat singer Tagaq, Roots beatboxer Rahzel, and other guests. I have read that there is a bit of keyboard work on a few tracks, but otherwise every sound is produced in some way by the human voice. Absolutely stunning. I encourage everyone (including myself) to seek it out in its entirety.

Also, check out www.dokaka.com for some bizarre all-vocal covers of songs like Slayer's "Angel of Death" and Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" among other strange things.
