Math-rock
« on: Jan 25, 2011, 02:26 AM »
I present you the greatest band I've found in 2-3 years.
LITE.

Evidence #1 -
LITE "Ghost Dance" PV

Evidence #2 -
LITE / Contemporary Disease [Live at The Mercury Lounge]

How can you be so incredibly good at playing live rock?
I am very much impressed. Any more impressive math-rock? I am so far into LITE, te' and Toe; also getting Giraffes? Giraffes!

Tera Melos first album, their EPs Drugs to the dear youth and Complex on the horizon are masterpieces! One of my favourite bands. They've toured with LITE twice in Japan. Their new album is also great, but a bit different from the previous ones.

Giraffes also has a new live album out with a couple of new songs on it.

Werewolf Grandma with knives is amazing!

I tried to check out Tera Melos, but sometimes they're a little too dissonant and anti-structured.
LITE has the perfect balance between shifting chaos, grooves and emotion, somehow. :)

Well, in my eyes post-rock and math-rock are verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry close as genres. And since I am majorly into post-rock.. :)

Math rock is such a sexy concept. Too bad the execution is usually way sloppy. I don't know though, maybe i've just listened to the wrong bands.
