Rec Me Anything

Just anything, the more bizarre and out of my comfort zone the better. List is some (what I would consider to be) odd stuff, but good odd.
1Pan-Thy-Monium
Khaooohs & Kon-Fus-Ion


Some Swedish avant-garde metal, probably most heavily influenced by black metal but its got all sorts in there.
2The The
Infected


Would struggle to put a label on this, but its a fascinating listen
3Ween
Pure Guava


I mean its Ween, so you know what your getting, but this is one of their more successful attempts to create a very niche and unique style that does still hop from genre to genre whilst keeping it relatively cohesive and not too silly (but its Ween, so yeah)
4Tiger Lillies
Cold Night in Soho


Doofs review nails all that is wonderful about this album, so go read that
5Jordaan Mason and The Horse Museum
Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head


Very simple instrumentally (low fi folk), but the lyrics on this are perplexing and, despite being completely unreliable and at times disturbing, wonderfully emotional in spots
6Ichiko Aoba
Utabiko


Intimate and beautiful
7Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam


I mean this isn't too odd once you get used to it, and its of course very popular, but yeah on first listen this is nuts
8Brainiac
Electro-Shock for President


An interesting variant of noise rock
9Curl Up and Die
But The Past Ain't Through With Us


The last song on this is truly unique for the genre. The rest is standard
10Funkadelic
Maggot Brain


I found this good fun but quite bizarre, but don't know enough about the genre to judge whether this is an odd one for the genre or its just lack of experience for me
11Horse Lords
Hidden Cities


Most will likely hate this, but this sends me into a trance, wonderful musical escapism for me
12Julia Brown
An Abundance of Strawberries


This isn't that odd, but its not a genre I'm used to and its amazing
