As is apparently becoming tradition, a few years after a meaty Toe release we get four track EP that sounds like it could have been part of the preceding LP. A tasty little digestif to tide us from 2015’s gorgeously eclectic Hear You.
You might agree that the mid-1990’s were the salad days of math rock, a time where the term ‘math rock’ was still a joke phrase and only just picking up traction from the zines and journos. There were bands like Chavez, Polvo, Shudder To Think that added rhythmic complexity to their combinations of grunge, slacker rock, post-punk, and post-hardcore with a mathy edge. What made these bands so good is that their discordant was well-balanced with palatable hooks and sing-alongs.
