Shades have only gone and released their new demo! It’s pretty damn good. Get behind these dudes because they’ve got some promising stuff on the way…
Right, our boys in Suffer Like G Did just released a brand new track today and it’s a bloody banger! Come have a listen right away. We command you to do so with haste.
Electronic Post/Progressive Math Rock from Sydney! Check this out because it’s been sitting in our submission box for a while (sorry!) and I just got round to listening to it.
Really reminiscent of bands like EITS and Battles.

This is a video for part of the concept album released by The Slaughterhouse 5 and it’s pretty crazy, surreal and intense. (NSFW)
Fight Cloud - No Grain, No Pain
A Spanish Math/Progressive Rock Instrumental band composed by a huge drum set, a bass guitar with many effect pedals and a cool guitar player.
First, there was Sinatra…But now, there’s My First Castle.
Your DC based screamo boys have brought out a new album and I’ll just start this recommendation by telling you it’s fucking awesome. If that isn’t enough to make you want it already, then read on…
With more lineup changes than you can shake a stick at, they’ve finally found a solid bunch of great dudes and musicians that clearly work well together in the creative process. This album’s pretty much got everything you’re expecting from a ‘math rock’ release in 2013, it’s full of tapping, odd time signatures, alternating guitars and noodly goodness.
The guitars played by Chris and Zach really remind me of bands such as Colour, The Fall of Troy and Native. Constantly riffs are alternating and dancing around one another whilst Michael’s basslines are weaving in and out.
Drums provided by Matt are well thought out and are sat perfectly in the mix. Having joined the band a far way into the writing process, he’s done superbly to have learned the parts for the new release and to write a whole bunch of new material for it. Great job, dude!
Vocals on the album provided by Eddie are varied in tones and can range from soft harmonies to gut wrenching screamed passages that help showcase the force that is My First Castle.
This is just such a fun release and I can’t wait to hear these guys live and see where they go next! It’s accessible, it’s mathy, it’s screamy and it’s written by some of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met.
