Math Rock
« on: October 01, 2018, 04:24:45 PM »
Thought it'd be tight to have a thread dedicated to the genre since I didn't see one. Big fan of the genre and love how it encompasses a wide range of bands, most of which are pretty obscure.

Stumbled across this album yesterday, 'Clown Pleaser' has been on repeat since

On a side note, are there any documented video parts of people skating to math rock? I feel like there's a massive untapped pool of songs that would be great in a skate video.

Arto skating to Battles in Mindfield is the closest thing I can think of.

It's about time you found out about these guys, Planman. They're from Chicago!

It's crazy to think how young these guys were when they made Spiderland.

Slint has been used a few times. There's gotta be some videos parts somewhere between 99 and the early 2000s that used stuff like this.

These guys seem pretty divisive, but I love them.
In the vein of American Football. Emo-ish math rock. Their guitarist is amazing too.

It's probably at least fair to say the bmx forums would have more threads about math rock than slap.  I know that about math rock and also know it's got blink and bloop sounds.

Thanks for the Diagonah albums clamy! I'm about halfway through Battle Champions right now and I'm really liking it, reminds me a lot of Mineral.

Dilute album is great, I got my friend the Dilute/Hella live cd earlier this year bc she really likes them and put me onto it initially. Storm and Stress is great too, just listened to their first two albums recently.

Here's a couple more good ones:

Marty Anderson / Okay / Jacques Kopstein. been a fan since AH1, bought the Okay discography twice (once for me, one for a girl), all great stuff. Dilute was my introduction to math rock (not that I'm well versed in it). amazing songs on this album too. cool to see them get some love on here

I never knew Dilute had an album other than GBPSOG! I love that album, Sickroom blows my mind every time I hear it. Thanks, silhouette.

Duster is definitely not math rock, they're slowcore/space rock/indie rock mostly. +1 For loving Cap'n Jazz though

Always dug this band, kind of remind me a lot of American Football. Except without vocals.

Chon are another good math rock band, too.
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

I really enjoy American Football, but Tiny Moving Parts I has been my favorite out of the bunch so far.

Nobody mentioning June of 44 makes me question this thread and I'm too stupid to know how to make a Youtube link post correctly, which isn't making things any better.

Stumbled across Sharks Keep Moving last week through youtube reccs only to find that you posted them in here months ago. Somebody kook me, I'm gonna listen to you from now on.

Came across this last night and listened to it twice in a row today. All the songs are great but especially the one or two with vocals.

My old band from high school/my late teens was ahead of the game on the midwest emo inspired shit, haha. We were called "oh my god elephant" (name changed to Rainbow Tornado for the 2nd release), we made tunes like 2005-2007. The craze seems to really have caught on a few years after that, dang it!

Anyhoo, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for math rock <3

EDIT:
