Music that's off the beaten path

Everyone list a single group, album, or recording, that is not your typical fare. Let's open each other's ears/eyes to some new material, and broaden our musical vistas.

 

I nominate anything by the Tallis Scholars. The beauty of the music of this sacred renaissance choral group will bring tears to your eyes. When angels sing, this must be what it sounds like.

most of what I listen to is what you refer to as "off the beaten path," but this forum is pretty decent for a guitar forum in their taste, so what I listen to isn't that obscure. most likely because not a lot of classic rawk/{censored} mainstream music uses any cool effects. Hell, the first day I was here someone recognized my avatar as an Earth album. A rare, live Earth album at that.

Teengenerate. These vids were shot at a kickass all-ages place I used to see shows and play back in high school. It got shut down by some total assholes on the Green Bay city council a few years ago.

Larry "Wild Man" Fischer. He's one of the best known outsider musicians. Frank Zappa discovered him in the late 1960's on the streets of Haight and Ashbury singing. Many of his songs deals with him being a paranoid schizophrenic, and having manic depression.

Along the same lines, Roky Erickson.
