'Plains of the purple buffalo' is another good one from *shels. One of my fav from Mono and Word's End Girlfriend is 'Palmless prayer-mass murder refrain'.
Caspian - Tertia (pretty different from their earlier work). Give a try to this too http://caspiantheband.bandcamp.com/album/you-are-the-conductor-the-four-trees-remastered .
They released a more experimental album on 25th sep, 2012. Haven't listened to that yet.
