Slowcore is far from attention-grabbing. It definitely takes a couple listen, then starts to "make sense," I guess.
Listen to Today if you didn't like On Fire. They're not drastically different, but it may be more your thing.

Also this song by the Mountain Goats is super sad, as is most of the album it's from. But if you had a loved one die recently then you should especially listen to this song. One of my favorites by him actually. Just beautifully written.

Different guy, but def was. You must've missed it. I didn't really listen to Xiu Xiu but it was hyped so much a few months back I got a few albums.
>>
>>50676877
I beg to differ. Xiu Xiu has always been mentioned quite a bit on /mu/, but not to /mu/-core levels, nor is it now as far as I can tell. But whatever, it's not important. It's a great album.
