Over the past month or so I’ve been very slowly dipping my toe into the well of content that is R. Stevie Moore. When you have as much output as he does, it’s hard to know where to start. So, I’m suggesting the following albums as a means of acclimating yourself to his aesthetic. Don’t let the lo-fi scare you, this guy is a brilliant pop master and the songs shine through no matter the production.
Flash Pasteurized – “various rsm oldie hits, run through a device which sped them up without raising the pitch.” Kind of a great Best Of entry point.
RSM Reforms The Beatles – Beatles covers, duh.
Instrumentality/Aviation – great environmental music.
