treegrains - treegrains

These are a instrumental trio consisting of two guitarists and drummer. The sound these guys posses is fairly paradoxical, minimal sounding and yet mostly busy pretty straight up math rock. The tunes are much more interesting than the record cover... treegrains

Lightning For Legs - Atomics

Two piece UK based experimental sounding math, taking aboard a fair amount of noise rock alongside post rock elements. Pretty rocking except for the end of the last track which turns in to a bit of a ambient type wall o noise.. bar that a pretty sweet three tunes. Atomics

Eight Million Kami - Split with Betterment

Checked out these guys demos a while back and they have been coming on nicely. Experimentation heavy maths teaming with talent. They share this split with Betterment who are also worth checking out. Split

Death & The Ninth Day - Man Falls Down Well

Been waiting on this to come out a while since I checked out their first three tracks back at the start of the year, and have been pretty excited about it (to the extent I've also posted it over at plenty of swords). These guys haven't disappointed either. Sick instrumentals meshing together indie end tech metal, math rock prog to name a few things. Really good. Man Falls Down Well

Loqto - 1st Demo

I wonder if this is actually their first demo.. pretty ridiculous if so. Instrumental math rock post rock post hardcore type tunes from this Japanese trio. Fast moving, stupidly technical as you'd expect from a Japanese mathy band, throw in the musical sense to write short and catchy tunes. Good times. Nearly forgot to say this is up for the full free bee on their bndcmp. 1st Demo

Without Maps - Capillaries

Nottingham based quartet. These bust out the post hardcore jams, energetic and angular with shouty vocals, ok so not any untrodden ground here but all nicely executed none the less. Capillaries

Half Milk - Kept Mang

Quite liked the stuff these guys have been doing and had covered their last outing. Unfortunately it sounds like this is the last record from these as a band. Shame really as these do a good job rocking the math and post hardcore vibes with the emo vocal stylings. I'm happy to report they leave us on a high note however, bar  the odd slightly directionless moment this is pretty epic. Up for grabs on their bancamp name the price. Kept Mang

Holow Ran - Cold Phase online

A intricate clean math sounding two piece from Costa Mesa, California. Some pretty scatty moments, with some cool changes within. Ups on the bandscamp name the price. Cold Phase Online

Murder In The Red Barn

I don't often do posts on older tunes, but I've done a few on bands connected with hero of a hundred fights, which these are.. Plus these are seriously good in their own right, and also their tunes are fairly hard to come by. So these were about early 2000s era and kinda played a experimental math rock infused with post hardcore and such. Did a bit of searching about and put a file together with everything I could find which consists of a self titled ep, get in before the rain and some unreleased tunes. These are one of those bands really worth getting to know if you didn't already. I would say they were underrated, but I think it's more a case of under listened..  Collected MITRB

Family Planning - Family Planning

Dublin based trio playing tunes in the realms of math/punk/noise rock type stuff. Probably more to the noise and punk end of things over the math spectrum, but good tunes none the less. Offered up on the name the price price over their bandcamp ways. Family Planning

Chia Roscuro - Southern Dogface

Mathy four piece from South Carolina. These guys mix up all sorts from prog to to funk and reggae.. They manage to pull it off nicely too. Be quite interesting to hear what these do with more time put into the recording. Up on the bandcamp for full on free. Southern Dogface

Psychojets - Flights

So these are back with a couple new tunes. Good stuff because I enjoyed their last record. Still keeping with the busy and interesting kind of post rock. Sadly looks like this one will be their last as it sounds like they are parting ways. Flights

Colours - Tetrachromacy

These kind of remind me a bit of future 1983 which in my book is a really good thing. Would place these a bit more along to post hardcore end of the spectrum. Good tunes for sure though. Tetrachromancy

Ditch Tiger - Old Growth

These are a five piece from Idaho, playing what is mostly a punk and post hardcore sort of affair with decent touches of math influences to spice things up a bit. Defo been enjoying the last couple of days. Up on the bandcamp name the price well worth checking. Old Growth
