    It's not avant garde, I think the word you guys are looking for is 'atypical'.

    "10 minute long storytelling or soundscaping" ? Perfect fit for the Velvets... On their more poppier stuff they're just plain pop/rock... the art rock label referred to their live show more than the "hits". They're more of an anomaly in art rock anyway being as they are primarily a drone rock band
