The Horseflies: Human Fly [Rounder, 1987]
You can tell these sardonic folkies have big plans because they've come up with a slogan: "neoprimitive bug music," which definitely beats "the Ithaca sound." Overimpressed with Philip Glass, bluegrass, or both, they utilize lots of repetition. Very hypnotic, or strophic, or static. Also kind of tedious, like the grim life-cycle they so often evoke--a little goes a long way, which I guess beats nowhere. Check out the Cramps cover.
