Music Suggestions Please

I'm looking for stuff with a surreal feel and a nice melody. I already listen to everything from Boards of Canada to Emancipator to Baths. Any suggestions? Anybody producing music like that? I like super abstract stuff, but I'm not looking for that here. I'd like a few tips on Aphex Twin songs for instance, any tracks he's done with a more defined melody ya know, dare I say 'pretty stuff'.

Re: Music Suggestions Please

are you following the posts in the IDM releases thread? I know there's a lot to catch onto but there are some that you might find interest in.

This was released last year and I felt it was pretty much boardofcanadaesque, maybe with something of a more synthetic and frantic beat.

Re: Music Suggestions Please

Karsten Pflum is kind of an IDM superstar so maybe you've already listened to his work and maybe it wasn't your thing but in my book he's definitely of the melody-driven IDMists.

https://karstenpflum.bandcamp.com

His latest release on Hymen, "Dode" is solid. Some tracks are a little more abstract but I think you'll find most of it is on the "pretty" side. That contrast is what makes the pretty parts stand out even more.

"Slaphead Faun" is one of my favorite of his.

Rules out most popular music imo, as well as techno, drone, and avant garde, but I see what you're saying.
