20 Best Hi-Lo Art Records

This list by Matt Ingram isn't records by the Hi-Lo's but records mixing high and low art - at least in theory since some of them seem a bit opaque for such a criterion. As such it definitely leans more towards the high end, is nevertheless a bit too rockist and still comes out looking like a playlist from Funhouse HQ. I would have gone for Rubber Soul or Revolver, more Sonic Youth & Eno, added some Mingus or Cecil Taylor, absolutely no Scott Walker and have never heard Alva-Noto though judging from other Mille Plateaux releases it would be "interesting" and pretty forgettable.
