ITT: We compare bands/musicians to cartoons. I'll start with the obvious one of the Microphones and Gravity Falls.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Neon Genesis Evangelion

>can be appreciated for simplistic reasons, but can also withstand complex analysis

>Anno and Efrim are both hairy and disgusting
Pic related always gave me a strong kill la kill vibe for a reason I can't explain. Maybe they're both just very over the top for their respective genre's
Please stop. All these threads ever are is "Gravity Falls is The Microphones" and then everything else gets compared to Death Grips, Neutral Milk Hotel, Radiohead or Animal Collective because that's all you idiots ever fucking listen to.
Attack on Titan
>mediocrity gets hailed as great
>fans think they are into some very obscure shit but don't realize it's super entry level
Moomins give me Sigur Rós vibes. Can be tense and heavy at times, but mostly is cozy, comforting, and vaguely melancholic.
Dexter is also good for Stockhausen, Can, Babbit and various other early electronic artists.
Slowdive don't really give off a 90s alt rock vibe.
James Chance and The Contortions
Mindless Self Indulgence.
That was easy.
>both use the same type of absurdist humor
>both have horrible fanbases (which overlap)
>both are aware of their horrible fanbases and mock them on a regular basis
>JV actually directed a music video for MSI
Can't help but associate this with the Apples in Stereo. I'd like to hear what everyone else thinks, though.
Every 60s psychedelic rock band ever.
Daft Punk comes to mind first for some reason, but shit I dunno, Crystal Castles? Autechre?
