Okay, I hear the hard-hipster background groove. Must admit, that was all I heard the first time. Bigger stereo system, higher volume second play, does sound more meaty.
Still kicking its ass, though:
TriBeCaStan, Goddess Polka Dottess (EverGreen)
Terakaft, Alone (Outhere)
Aziz Sahmaoui & University of Gnawa, Mazal (Geomuse/World Village)
Wow, this seemed to come out of nowwhere with power and variety to burn, but the leader is a cofounder of Orchestra National de Barbes and a former partner of Joe Zawinul and this is smart and quicksilver as you could want. Unless it wears off.
