From the Paste your taste thread :) Anything you'd recommend based on my library? What Frank Zappa/Captain Beefheart should I listen to?
If you're after any recommendations let me know what you're after!
oooo hello, didn't see this. Safe as Milk is a great starting album, then maybe the A&M sessions, with a little Strictly Personal on the side. FZ wise, Hot Rats, Apostrophe, and Bongo Fury.
Starting to listen to a little KGATLW, what's their best album for you?
The latest 3 albums of theirs are all pretty damn energetic. If you're after something almost psychotically energetic then go for Nonagon Infinity, the whole album is very high-paced and tight drums which remind me of the track 'Where Eagles Dare' by The Misfits. I'm In Your Mind Fuzz has a bit more variety of sound (despite reprises) and is closer to the atmospheric side of neo-psychedelia, I'd almost go as far to say that it's pretty Krautrocky in structure at times. Their latest is a decent addition which compliments I'm In Your Mind Fuzz more-so. Their earlier work is great too, it's a hard band to describe/prescribe, hah. I'd say listen to I'm In Your Mind Fuzz first unless you are after something reasonably abrasive or pretty high energy, in which case go for Nonagon Infinity. Alternatively there's always Paper Mache Dream Balloon which is different to their other albums, much more mellow and pretty, but it's not too representative of their music as a whole.
Lastly Fill Your Lungs by KGATLW is their most traditional-psych sounding album. Thanks for the recommendations for Captain Beefheart, I will definitely be getting around to checking these albums out over the coming week. (Lots of recommendations lined up and naturally sometimes I want to listen to albums I'm already familiar with, but I do always get around to listening to them all). I can see that you're open to experimental side of the 60s-70s with Captain Beefheart and Zappa and that you enjoy more traditional psych like 13th Floor Elevators and The Doors. I'd highly recommend that you listen to the album SF Sorrow by The Pretty Things. A very experimental and psychedelic album which sounds like a blend of Love's Forever Changes, Pink Floyd and garage rock. I don't know if I can really do any justice with my descriptions, but I do have a strong feeling that you will enjoy it based on your taste.
