I should mention Virgil Donati's new album - In this life.
Do not look down has a 17/16 bass/guitar groove though, over the 4/4. But it sounds really good.

The pot is mostly in 4/4 though, except for a few parts in 6/8. :) But Schism is really a perfect example for this thread, I think of the verse groove as 5/8+7/8 and the rest of the song has time signature changes all over the place but it all flows so nicely.
