The consolation of math rock is that the unexpected is expected. The listener is often presented with a non-conventional sensory overload and, as the song finishes, are left picking up the many pieces and trying to make sense of them.
As far as we can tell, Anthony Fremont, whose namesake adorns Anthony Fremont's Garden Solutions is not in fact a physical member of the Ohio math-noise quartet. Rather, he is (purportedly) a 6 year old monster who, in between transmogrifying reality based on the thoughts he hears inside people's minds, writes music vicariously through guitarist Marcus Drake.
What can I really say here. It is beyond absolute pleasure to be featuring this wonderful remastered version of Cheer Accident's phenomenal title track from their 2000 album Salad Days.
Even in this digital age where you can find about any genre under the sun, it's hard to find a band as eclectic and bizarre as Nojikas. Still, from a listen to this latest frenetic release the バレエ Ballet Mechanic EP, it's clear that this Japanese experimental outfit couldn't really exist in any other time.
One would find it hard to argue that experimental-math-jazz oddballs Doom Salad aren't dedicated. Since 2013, the band has been birthing a progeny of (good) EPs dating back to 2013, about 1.5 per year by our count. As step up to the plate with their first full-length, Further, Unafraid, Into the Light, it would seem that their fecundity knows no limits.
