If IDM were poetry, than Kelpe would be a bohemian armed with barrels of sonnets. At moments it's almost quotable with intricate beats and overlayed warm tonal pads, the marriage of all the sounds suggests a distant kind of hope which is rarely evoked in electronic music today. Making a long playing record that demands your attention from the first track to last is something you would expect from a Boards of Canada or an Autechre. 2004's Sea Inside Body is Kelpe's debut and it holds it's own among the top tier of electronic music. One more special thing, the album art is stunning and represents the noetic qualities of the music. I would not do the cover justice by posting a small image here but you can check it out at Kelpe's website.
