There’s quite a few candidates on those records. How about My Death/The Big Hurt/Such a Small Love from Scott? Or Copenhagen/Rosemary/Big Louise from Scott 3?

First thing that comes to mind and It could be said it’s because it stands so clearly above the rest of the album but

Moderat - S/T - A New Error/Rusty Nails/Seamonkey.

I was always quite a big fan of the first 3 of Menomena’s Friend and Foe too.
Muscle n Flo/The Pelican/Wet And Rusting

I need to think about this more though…

For an R.E.M. one you can’t beat the first three tracks of Reckoning - Harborcoat/7 Chinese Bros/So. Central Rain.
