Squarepusher is anything but "straightforward." Typically people are going to group him with Aphex Twin, Autechre, etc., bu his sound can be really varied. He incorporates a lot of drum n bass into his IDM stuff too. You'd probably dig the bulk of his catalog, it's super interesting!
Sun City Girls.
Excuse me if this has already been asked. But I'm curious about sigur ros. I'm considering checking them out at osl and I don't know what to expect. Would it be best to research them before the show or would I appreciate them more with a live introduction?
Check out Ágætis byrjun. It's incredible.
Thanks for the recommendations. And no there's not much of a conflict. I've seen metallica twice before and they were cool but no need to see them again. Plus i always hear wonderful things about sigur ros from all you boardies, and you guys typically have good taste in music

On the other hand, I don't necessarily think you need to get oriented with the discography to really enjoy their set. It'll be a religious experience either way. Maybe just get to know their sound a little bit.

With a buzz in our ears is pretty approachable compared to their others. That one two punch of Gobbledigook and Inni mer... right out the gate is a lot of fun. Fits the mood more often then the others.
( ) is most unique and from everyone i've ever introduced to the band they say it either gets them immediately or is a big grower much later on once they know the group. My favorite by miles though. Always has been.
Lets be honest though "It's incredible" goes for all of their releases in different ways. With them all having a very unique tone/approach its not like there is right answer with where to start.
I will recommend you listen to their live album from last year Inni. It has a pretty great selection of songs and you can get an idea of their concert presence.
Personally, I'd be extremely overwhelmed processing their music in a live setting if it was the first time I had heard them; that could be the exact kind of experience you want though.
What?!? People have different preferences for favorite albums of bands? Why I never
Just listened to Ágætis byrjun in its entirety... That. Was. Incredible
Yeah I just started there too.
I've really enjoyed everything I've heard from them. They do some stuff that incorporates Arabic influences that I was particularly fond of.
You should also check out some Muslimgauze if you haven't before.
