Just a thread to post accesible albums by what you’d consider bands that are tough to get ‘into’ basically an excuse to recommend a band and post their most easily digested album. You never know, this might be the initial bread crumb for you to get into a band you’ve long heard about but been far too overwhelmed to get into.
Going to post the duo of albums that inspired this thread. Currently listening to some late-era records from The Residents and this doubleheader is largely considered the bands Rennaissance period some 40 years into their career. These 2 records took on a far more melodic approach to their songwriting which was always present but usually shrouded in avant-garde experimentation. These 2 records see the avant-garde side of things by in large stripped back in place of pure melodic songwriting and both records are largely successful in marrying the quirky lyrics/concepts with this new approach and whilst both records are indeed far less experimental than their peers they still maintain a rather surreal edge which keeps them interesting.
