Talk about math rock
What math rock have you been listening to lately?
What was the first math rock album you remember listening to?
is it a sin that i make mathrock inspired electronic music using fake guitar sounds?
does it become a sin when it's because try as i may i can never play the riffs i write and have them sound the way i mean them to? (i.e. shitty muting, tapped notes are too quiet, i add the beat in at the wrong spot)
I guess it depends on how convincing it sounds, and what you labelled it as.
American Don will always stand among the greatest albums in the genre I'm sure, I should really spend more time listening to their earlier stuff. I've listened to it before, but only a passing listen
i've had people think it's actual playing, but i also get people telling me to "use real instruments" but like i do it in fuckin guitar pro, and i label it as "electronic math rock," or sometimes even just "electronic math"
As little as I like Tera Melos, I really enjoy Melody Nine from X'ed Out. I guess they were fun to see live, but I really think Nick dicks around guitar too much
Anyways, I just finished listening to Destination Qualité by Pneu, a French math rock band and the first 2015 math rock release I've heard. While there were some parts that definitely touched on a winning sound, overall it seemed kind of inconsistent.
pic related might be best thing i discovered in last few years, i might be a bit too hyped but i absolutely love this record. Also getting into Lightning Bolt, pretty good too.
You should check out ent's s/t release
They have the same kind of twinkly-yet-aggressive sound that piglet has, but in my opinion do it much better. It's definitely one of, if not my favorite, math rock release
Here's a sample
Here's a download
For a lot of bands, you can check the archive and just search for the band with either mega or download or whatever and you generally find some download links
Here's the link to the archive
Can't stop listening to this
Yet they did the best live I have ever seen.
> 4 Math Rock Bands (Pneu, Electric Electric, Marvin, Papier Tigre)
> In one room
> Playing altogether, or one after the other
> Improvisation based on whatever the other bands plays
> Surrounded by soundwalls everywhere (the 4 bands are in the corner of the room)
> Amazing time
It's called La Colonie De Vacances, if you ever have the chance to see it live, run for it. There's some videos on YouTube, but it's not really catching the whole thing.
Also, other french Math Rock bands that I like :
Man Is Not A Bird (similar to ASIWYFA)
