When Noel Gallagher of Oasis heard it, he declared it "amazing," and <em>The Guardian</em> called it "the best album <a href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15229570" target="_blank">The Beatles</a> never recorded."<p>The album is <em>Kontiki </em>by the Austin, Texas, band Cotton Mather.
