Lightbulb can someone recommend some good experimental music?

Could somebody recommend me some cool experimental bands, I've been listening to a lot of Ween and Black Moth Super Rainbow recently, so something along those lines?

When I was in my crazy experimental phase I listened to lots of Venetian Snares and a bit of Captain Beefheart. Tom Waits has some experimental stuff that I really like.

Midas fall is a pretty experimental band with electronic stuff with rock, their song BPD for example has many experimental elements.
Also check Sunna - One Conditioning.
For more heavy stuff check Agalloch - Our Fortress is Burning... I
