Dublin City's benevolent jazz/math wizards Alarmist, alongside NY production artist Afghaniscan, have put together a video for "Lactic Tang," one of the band's more 70's fusion inspired tracks off their debut Sequesterer, released earlier this year.
EXCLUSIVE // Listen to some of the face-melting cuts off Body Hound’s instrumental masterpiece ‘No Moon’
In Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5, Billy Pilgrim is a war veteran with a peculiar predicament: he's got himself 'unstuck in time'. WHAT. 'All moments, past, present and future, always have existed, always will exist'...
Much like – let’s say – duck à l’orange, the constituents of Luo’s sound, on paper, haven’t, at first glance, ever appeared too likely to mingle well. Thick, hazy electronica and tumbling, wonky prog leanings; a bird and a citrus fruit? Neither part feels instantly plausible to mesh without prompting some discord however, as contemporaries such as Three Trapped Tigers and Poisonous Birds consistently prove (as regards the music, not the cuisine), the two can make for comfy bedfellows.

Grindcore is a brilliant genre; in fact, just generally, aggressive-tech-metal can be a very rewarding style of music – there’s a furious, electrifying energy captured in the violence of the music, which can ultimately prove tangibly cathartic. However, it’s such that, most often, that same energy is pumped into the creation of darker, angrier music which, without wanting to criticise, is not what listeners seeking a fix of intense, aggressive music always want.
Boston's Good Game just hit the math rock scene with their excitingly frantic EP Don't Blow It. All three tracks, but especially the aptly titled opener 'Cheating The NASA Space Physical' resemble the hectic, yet superabundantly melodic Emo-sound math-veterans like of Invalids and Colours...
