The Delta Mirror - Machines that Listen (2008)
Charming, shoegaze-y, electro-indie something-something. Machines that Listen is a concept album throughout which each song takes place in a different room of a hospital. Gauzy electronic textures; monotone, chant-like vocal melodies; chiming pianos; reverb patches galore. Really 'tugs at the 'ol heartstrings.'
The Delta Mirror have a new album. It is called Better Unsung. Here's their Facebook.

I write empty songs
and the words don't bother me
