damn, I don't know. I know pink floyd incorporates a lot of that into their music.

I like it when the singer sounds like he's on the verge of laughing but must press on. Like that part in "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite" when he's all "Candy bar a fallen star or a reading from Dr. Seuss" and you can hear the shiteating grin on his face when he's going into the chorus.

Soft female vocals over fast, heavy, fuzzy guitar (Joanna Gruesome, Perfect Pussy)

Sample-heavy hip-hop (Public Enemy, "Paul's Boutique")

Non-political, carefree and cheesy punk rock (Nobunny, Ramones)

Metal of any sort with blatant occult/satanic overtones (Mercyful Fate, Black Sabbath)

Trip-hop with evident hip-hop roots (i.e., not just electronics downtempo; Massive Attack, Tricky)

Man, any of those would just make me a happy camper. I'll rec others in following comments.

soft, slow, smouldering jazz like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adPpG0Dnxeg instrumental or with vocals is fine as well
"elevator music" aka easy listening
fang island (high-energy, intricate drums, guitar harmonies out the ass, ahhhhs or ohhhhhs at times)

I second for Whirr, Distressor is probably my rec
>>51134473
Woods of Desolation, it's black metal, but it fit's your description, I rec as the stars. Alternatively Stargazer, which is technical death, it's dmshareguy core
>>51134400
Sun Angle - Diamond Junk, find it in the archive, it's ADHD like, catchy and upbeat, it also has god tier drums.

OP I think you would really enjoy this album.
This Glocca Morra album is nothing like any of their others, it's essentially a prog/emo album that reads more like a narrative on the human condition. The struggle of coming of age, dealing with your past and keeping optimism for the future. Never a chorus, sparse guitar hooks, multiple vocalists.

Because I like being oddly specific:
