What's this chord progression?

I really like this chord progression, but I'm not exactly sure what it is. Could someone transcribe it?

Here are two examples.

0:00-0:15


0:00-0:07

First tune is Bm-A-E (now that i listen to it, i was right on chords but Id say E is the key so Mixolydian 5-4-1, same thing diff key)

second tune Cm-Bb-F

umm...there is no Dorian mode from A minor....Modes are always developed from the major key, not minor.

The first one is somewhere between A and G. The second I would guess a Wbm7th.

I think that it's a 7-6-3 progression within a Phrygian mode. Can someone prove me wrong?

Second one is a simple Cm, Bb, F. This would be in the key of F.

The first one is similar and in the key of E. But I hear the chords as being D, A, E. Listen to the bass notes to decide whether that is a D or a Bm, but I would chose D. On a guitar I would play a Dsus9.

There is extra coloration from what sounds like chords being layered at a 5th interval which adds a bunch of notes to make it sound like jazz chords. I call these Poly chords, where you intentionally layer different chords against each other to get interesting colors without having to think to hard about what you are doing...
