Travel to the Midwest United States during the peak of autumn. The air has become thin and cold, the trees have shed their foliage, and the wildlife is scarce. Dismal, overcast skies eloquently contrast the withering landscape. This particular time of year inspired the writing of Via Luna's third EP Wilt.
They say good things always come in twos. Couldn't be any more true for two-piece two-named Partout Partout. The Grand Est duo features Florian Borojevic, splitting his time between two bands, the other being one of our favourite instrumental noise outfits: 100% Chevalier.
All The Best Tapes are back, friends. Real back. Self-categorized under the tongue-in-cheek genre of 'thrash jazz' (about as tongue-in-cheek as 'math rock' - Ed.), the Stoke quartet are 'waking the egg' in their latest video, 'Perfect Hibernation'.
Saint Etienne's cacaphonic trio Ça have become exemplars of the chaotic and abrasive nature of French math rock, a country that harbors (or harbored) outfits such as Pneu, 100% Chevalier, Jean Jean, Chevreuil, Cheval De Frise.
Hopefully, we proved to you that Ireland is shit-hot spot for math rock, post-rock and instrumental rock when we released our free Ireland compilation a couple of months back. You might even remember 'Sunday Sandwich' from County Wicklow outfit Milo. Well, *NEWSFLASH*: Milo's moved on to bigger and brighter things it seems...
fter a couple of years on the scene, New Orleans quartet Static Masks will evolve to a higher form of Pokemon as they release their debut album this Friday. Late Bloomer wanders gracefully between the boundaries of math rock, shoegaze, indie and emo revival. It's eight tracks are punchy but unhinged, coherent but just a little askew to keep things unpredictable. We're loving it here in FB-land so this week we're bringing it to you a little earlier.
When Osnabrueck musician Benjamin Gunther aka Lilly Legit got in touch with us last year with his prime cut of piano-based jazzy math rock, we were pretty stoked to say the least. Coming off the back of our premiere of Lilly Legit's debut album last year there was talk, likes, upvotes, you know, lots of social media validation.
