If the seamless transition between "God Is Love" and "Mercy Mercy Me" doesn't wow you, you're not cool enough to listen to this.

I'm cool. Amazing! Although I must confess to being more a fan of Marvin's earlier things. This is a huge favourite:

Marvin Gaye was one of the finest singers in the latter half of the 20th century.

^ I had a random desire to get to know Gaye's music better. I'll look into that song (in a bit).

Right now I listening to this:

Hope you enjoyed it. Radiohead like Coldplay just doesn't register with me, I'm afraid.

I've been pushing on with Felt. The best album so far (I think) is The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories, which includes this extraordinary instrumental (although the whole album is stupendous):

Math rock has always intrigued me (bands like This Town Needs Guns), although the music is sometimes hard to listen to.

It seems a major precursor of the genre is the band Massacre. One of the YT comments on their album Killing Time (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1kPa1PTajU) mentioned another album by an act rejoicing in the name of Laddio Bolocko. At first I thought it was someone trying to be funny but this band really exists. And they sound great!

From that album, The Strange Warmings of Laddio Bolocko, this is the opening track, "Goat Lips":
