Adult Alternative Pop/Rock

With the release of Rustin Man's excellent Drift Code, it's time to revisit where it all began. Paul Webb's first album with the project featured Portishead's Beth Gibbons on a set of deeply beautiful songs that blended folk, R&B and jazz in ways that sounded timeless in 2002 and have only grown richer over the years.

Alternative/Indie Rock

A gentler entry in Animal Collective's diverse catalog, this collection of lengthy, atmospheric folk was recorded mostly live in semi-improvised sessions on a back porch. Meditative and ambient, this material predicted just one layer of the group's dense, freaked out take on pop that would follow.
