In the last few years, crowdfunding has seriously taken off as an avenue for independent bands to release their music without label support. But that doesn't mean it's easy. One band who has spectacularly pulled off this feat is Cleft, an instrumental math band from Manchester UK, in support of their debut full-length. We caught up with them to see how they did it.
In this feature we present 15 classic 'mathematical' bands that we think are deserving of your humble attention. We travel back as far as the late 1980's to dig out some of the hidden gems, and the bleedingly obvious ones. Also be sure to check out the accompanying playlist on our Youtube channel.
