The Beautifully Strange World of Outsider Music | Alfo Media
No matter how experimental a particular record might be, realize there’s more than likely a more out-there record you have never touched upon. For a more obscure experimental type of music, lays the genre outsider music, music created by naive musicians that have a novel characteristic that represents their sound. It’s challenging to describe what outsider music is, but examples include Tiny Tim, The Shaggs, Shooby Taylor, and countless others.
Above is a video from Alfo Media that details the interesting world of outsider music, highlighting musicians and artists who aren’t the most polished in the world, but they make up for it with passion and creativity. Go into this genre with an open mind and take this video as a good introduction for it.
