This classic video of Deerhoof Live @ Juan's Basement, 2009, is super:

Although typically classified as an indie rock band, due to their having been on an indie rock label (Kill Rock Stars) for the entirety of their career, the mercurial and unconventional nature of Deerhoof's music makes genre identification difficult, and perhaps inappropriate. But several recurring features can be said to constitute Deerhoof's distinctive sound: unassuming vocal delivery set against hyper-expressive instrumental playing; an elastic approach to group dynamics and rhythm more akin to the rubato of classical music performance practice than rock; odd yet highly memorable melodies; harmonic sophistication and dissonance; disjointed, condensed, asymmetrical and otherwise unconventional song structures; raw and at times strident sound surfaces; improvisation; and general creative restlessness. Kill Rock Stars

Xiu Xiu (pronounced “shew shew”) is an experimental band originally from San Jose, California and currently based in Durham, NC and Brooklyn. The band is named after the main character of the 1998 Chinese film Tian yu (a.k.a. Xiu Xiu: The Sent-Down Girl). Xiu Xiu was first formed in 2000 and is the main project of singer-songwriter Jamie Stewart, who records with friends on his home computer. Kill Rock Stars

Father Murphy is 3-piece experimental band from Italy. During live shows Chiara Lee, Vittorio and Freddie work together to play toy instruments, or to play instruments as toys. While Vittorio plays at the same time a kid-drumset and his old violin, Chiara puts together different sounds taken from any kind of old chinese toys and italian keyboards…and Freddie? Freddie is actually a reverend who sings a song from this world and the other one.
