Recounting the Reasons I Like Math Rock

Recounting the Reasons I Like Math Rock

This was originally a small segment of text added to the about page of this site. It was added in September 2014 to add color to otherwise bland about/resume type content. Interestingly, it's fostered the most conversation among friends and colleagues (including drums, beer and coffee).   

It digs little deep. There are just certain things that our friends and family don't like. I'd like to think that we all have a genre or artist we queue up when we're alone. We're in guilty pleasure territory. For you it might be ABBA, One Direction or Trap Rap but for me it's Math Rock.

Odd time signatures, progressive compositions and drastic dynamic shifts sound like music to me. If you are math rock curious I highly recommend the following;

Easier Listening: TTNG (This Town Needs Guns), Faraquet, Tubelord, Tricot, Don Caballero, Toe, The Redneck Manifesto, 

Harder Listening: Coheed & Cambria, Fates Warning, Spiral Architect, Closure in Moscow, Damiera
