Attempting to find more math rock albums/bands beyond Battles and BBNG. Where should i go next?
You Slut! is Battles + post/hardcore. Check it out.
>Don Caballero - What Burns Never Returns
>Don Caballero - American Don
I appreciate the update. I was just dicking around when I made the chart. Hopefully someone turns it into an actually readable format some day because I sure as hell am too lazy to.
This thread is making me cringe a bit.
>most people only mention mediocre 3rd wave bands like You Slut, Cardiacs, etc.
>those that do mention decent 2nd wave bands (Yowie, Hella, Tera Melos) forget some big essentials
Like someone here said, Don Caballero is 100% essential, OP. In fact it's the number one band you gotta listen to right now. They even have the same guitarist as in the Battles. Listen to their whole discography, it's great and also shows the evolution from post-hardcore to absolutely complex math rock.
Other essential 1st wave bands include (and most of these have really short discographies): Slint, Bitch Magnet, Drive Like Jehu, Rodan, Storm and Stress (again, same guitarist as in the Battles and Don Cab - Mr. Ian Williams), Polvo, Shellac and June of 44 (these last 3 have a bit bigger discographies).
Most 3rd wave bands, imo, just aren't worth it if you listen to 1st wave first like a normal person.
yeah some of those are kinda bad, lel. like the transition from don cab to adebisi shank. it's like miles apart. i didn't change that, tho, it took too much work and would probably require a way bigger remodeling of the whole chart
