Default Accessible Avant-Garde/Experimental Music

Obviously a big problem people have with a lot of this music is that they find it inaccessible. What are some examples of experimental music that you'd call accessible?

While some might get turned off by the vocal style, I think Sun City Girls is a pretty good example.

I love how Sonic Youth can play harsh noise pop hits

Often when I recommend people something, when they try to venture into this music, I suggest they start at the rock spectrum (or any other popular music spectrum). It's accessible because it's still familiar. There are enough avant garde/experimental tendencies that it transcends the genre, but not overwhelmingly so to break it all apart and create something completely new, and therefore unknown and scary.

Early Swans/Sonic Youth, no wave and kraut rock was my ticket. Personally I find repetition very accessible, so kraut rock was always appealing.

So I wanted to post Neu! - Negativland, but it's blocked in my country. Ah well, I hope it works for the rest of you (who still haven't heard it)

The Shaggs Philosophy of the World may not really be accessible but it's probably the friendliest true avant garde record ever made and a serious contender for top 20 all time all genres.

Oh yeah Negative Land kicks all kinds of ass

A lot of post punk follows that formula of being avant/exp music but then with a big groovy bass line to lock people in
