Either of the Ali Farka Toure & Toumani Diabate albums.

Martin Simpson and Wu Man - Music for the Motherless Child.

Rainer - Nocturnes.

Anything by Bill Frisell, but Ghost Town and Blues Dream are my favourites.

Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.

Warren Zevon - Life'll Kill Ya.

Yo La Tengo - I am not afraid of you and will beat your ass.

Richard Thompson - Live from Austin, Tx.

Neu! - 75.

Nils Petter Molvaer - Khmer.

Nguyen Le - Purple.

The Necks - Hanging Garden or Chemist.

That's a varied bunch and should expand a horizon or 2:).
