Best Ever Math Rock Album


Recommended Posts

  • 11 months later...

A little shameless self-promotion here. I joined a math rock band 6 months ago and we just released our new album. We did a pretty limited vinyl run if anyone is interested.

 

We've been described as being "Tera Melos for stoners" by Fecking Bahamas.

No word on vinyl or if ever there will be but never say never…

Still badly need Superbass on vinyl.

You liking this new album more than Memory Lame?  I actually couldn’t get excited about that one.  It’s by no means a bad record but it’s nowhere near as interesting (to me) as anything they did prior.

Memory Lame is an instrumental surf rock record. Yeah it's mathy, and I snapped it up with excitement but I don't revisit it near as much as Milk mouth. In fact, I still think the best of is this live performance, absolutely impeccable. Regardless, this is totally different approach, and it shows, because it's no longer a complete noodle fest, they're focusing on making some catchy moments and it's far more enjoyable. And yeah influences are worn the sleeve but in the best way.

Hope this gets vinyl at some point, it's really fantastic.

Heard of these guys from my Spotify recommendations. Anyone ever hear of these guys? Just can't stop listening. Too bad they never really picked up any recognition. They only have 3 EPs. Discogs lists them as math rock/ hard core. 


Just looked this up on Spotify and I’m into it. Thanks for the recommendation. Reminds me of an instrumental Rodan or something.

Late to the party but this fucking slaps. Fantastic record!

When I was a wee lad and had lots of friends in bands, it seemed like we just intuitively knew what math rock meant, and the aforementioned Owls were the epitome of the sound, so they (and especially the first album) get my vote. Algernon Cadwallader are eerily similar, but I'll take it.

 

Some of my friends in bands who I would consider mathy were these guys: https://clickers.bandcamp.com/album/ep002

 

Great energy, great live shows, and now it's all available for free, so check it out. EP 2 is a good start.
