Vanishing Twin is a British band with members from Belgium, Japan, Italy, France and America. Their latest album, The Age of Immunology, has been garnering great reviews featuring lots of favourable comparisons to obvious touchstones Stereolab and Broadcast. Its title is the name anthropologist A. David Napier gave to the modern era viewed as the zenith of 'the central assumption of immunology—that we survive through the recognition and elimination of [the] non-self'. The band's music is an expression of its desire to push against this tenet and towards a genuinely utopian future. Check out tracks Magician's Success and Backstroke, and then hopefully listen to (or even purchase) the whole thing!

I've been enjoying this album a lot over the last couple of weeks. I miss Broadcast.
