Mariee Sioux's Faces in the Rocks (2007) is a subtly beautiful psychedelic folk album in the same vein as Alela Diane's The Pirate's Gospel and Joanna Newsom's recent work, but with a warmer, more soothing energy.

I particularly like the sound of the Native American flute and its warble, played by a woman who goes by the name Gentle Thunder.

The album is quite magical, and will take you deep into forests full of wild reindeer and hidden creeks. It might require a few listens before you learn to fully appreciate its beauty.
