The Album Leaf
The Album Leaf is the one-man band of Jimmy LaValle, former member of several bands (most notably the Black Heart Procession). The music is mostly ambient instrumental, with vocals thrown in verrrry rarely.
The album In A Safe Place was recorder in Iceland after a tour with Sigur Ros, so the dreamy winter sounds created by Sigur Ros can be found on this album. This is perfect relaxing music or just music to have on in the background.

By the way, I only have about a month left until I move back into my new apartment and get off this God-awful caveman internet connection (56k sucks). Once I move in the updates will return to daily events. I know I'm looking forward to that and I hope you guys and gals are too.
