Is there any really (genuinely) weird hiphop/rap/R&B-ish stuff out there a la Tricky's Pre-Millennium Tension?
What other sad, angsty, folksy stuff can you recommend in the vein of Bruce Springsteen's totally awesome "Nebraska" and maybe to a lesser degree Bon Iver's "For Emma, Forever Ago"?

If you like Django Reinhardt, what/whom else would you like?
Anyone know who does the theme song on this season's (season 4) The Wire? Damn it's good.
I don't know anything about the blues but really like the sort of pounding ferocity of Muddy Waters' Mannish Boy. What else should I check out?

I am a sort-of musician (lo-fi ambient-ish- real marketable stuff) and I want to start going out into the crazy world about me and recording various sounds.
