Yeah, I got an e-mail about that this morning and got really excited

I've seen them twice, once at the House of Blues here in New Orleans in 2008, and then once last year at Voodoo Fest. They were still enjoyable to watch at Voodoo Fest, but they weren't half as awesome as they were at the HoB. They're coming back to the House of Blues for this tour, and playing potentially more older stuff than when they played in '08 there, so that's gonna rule.

I wasn't impressed with it much at all when it first came out, but after seeing them play some of the songs from it live and listening to the album more and more, I like it now. For some reason, it just didn't hit me right away as being awesome like every other album of theirs has.

Don't get me wrong, it's definitely their worst release. But it's got some tracks that are super enjoyable to listen to, like My Time, Summer Angel, Secret Country, Hold Me Down, Into The Mirror and Animal Backwards.

There are a few tracks on that album that I wouldn't be too broken up about if I never heard again, though.

New hella track. http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/16177-yubacore/

Got to say, they are one band who hates sounding the same cd after cd. I really like the direction of this new one though, the two released tracks so far have blown me away.

20 more days! New Giraffes? Giraffes! and Hella cd in the same month. What more could you ask for?

This album is so loving good. Can't recommend it enough to everyone in thread, not that Hella should take much convincing.

Do we have a release date yet for that new Giraffes Giraffes? ?

I haven't even heard the whole album yet and it's killer. Between this and Tera Melos' "Patagonian Rats" it has been a good year for math rock already.

Still no release date for Giraffes? Giraffes! :[

Oh and btw, Mutiny on the Bounty are just about done with their new album.

From their Facebook: "We're officialy done with the recording, tomorrow we keep going with the mix for a whole week. It sounds already killer like that, add a couple of good reverbs, compressor, tons of work and magic tricks from mister Bayles and it will sound magic "

They're recording with Matt Bayles who has produced records from the bands Botch, Minus the Bear, The Fall Of Troy, Mastodon, Russian Circles etc... So it's looking like this record will have a seriously good sound to it.\

Just thought I'd add that he played keyboard for Minus The Bear up until Menos El Oso and probably was largely responsible for forming the band, given he worked as a producer for both Botch and Sharks Keep Moving just before they broke up and members went on to join MTB.

Trivia aside, I just wanted to thank everyone in this thread for largely introducing me to my favorite genre of music. Unfortunately, I don't have much to contribute, but I can try and shoehorn in a couple of bands.

Octis or Ocrilim is the moniker for Mick Barr, the guitarist of the previously mentioned Orthrelm. Although it's normally classified as avant garde or experimental metal, I feel that it fits the spirit of this thread perfectly.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FQ1...feature=related

He also did a pretty cool collaboration with Zach Hill (drummer of Hella/Bygones.)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZfARY-Bn7o

Chavez is a band I have seen labeled as math rock quite often, although I don't really agree with that label. In any case, it's loud, obtrusive, and wonderful in every way and you should definitely check them out.

So I remember hearing about the band Loom somewhere in NMD, I don't think it was in this thread because it was years ago. Anyway, their album Angler was posted and I ended up getting it and basically the album was very straightforward "blah" mathrock, plus they had a violinist, which pretty much took center stage on the whole album (example). I was really not impressed and kinda set it aside/forgot about it. I was just looking for youtubes of Loom to recommend them to someone who was looking for "orchestral" mathrock and noticed they had more music now. It's actually pretty great; they got much heavier and they almost sound like Cinemechanica, which is cool. Have a listen:

So basically if anyone wrote them off like I did give them another shot

YOUR GOLDEN MAGNETIC LIGHT

The Number Twelve Looks Like You has a secret to tell everyone when they get 1000 Twitter followers.

I am so loving excited at the mere possibility of this band regrouping. They're one of the shining stars of modern heavy music in my eyes, and they broke up just as their music was reaching new heights.

I was gonna post this in the metalcore thread, but most of those people have horrible taste and #12 is definitely more math- even if they're heavy as poo poo.

I'm extremely excited for their new album. Their singer left the band to start a family, which is cool with me because he was the weakest part of the band for me. The replacement they got is the lead singer from a band called Pennines who is totally awesome. Everyone should give them a listen if you haven't.

Everyone check out Morkobot! Dark, sludgy, groovy and overall pretty experimental Italian math-something. Myspace or LastFM, whichever you prefer.

If you're not into songs that go past the ten minute mark (like their older stuff) then check out their new album, Morbo, which is more like this

Hey! I play guitar in Friends. I'm actually surprised anybody knows who we are.. uhh, but we kind of did break up, or atleast we downsized to a three piece. We're called Thinguins now, no music recorded yet though. Thanks alot for mentioning us, I literally said "Holy poo poo" out loud.

I literally just said "no loving way!" out loud! that's so awesome, I love that album a lot! definitely will have to stay informed about Thinguins now. mad excited to hear you're still making music, more 'math rock' needs to be like that IMO.

I searched the thread and didn't see Blakfish mentioned yet. They were friends with and on the same label as bands like Colour and Tubelord, and like most of those bands they've already broken up. I think they're probably my favourite band in the genre even though I generally don't like hardcore music.

Oh man, that trailer song sounds so loving great. It sounds like a cross between the older Menos El Oso/Planet Of Ice era stuff and the newer Omni type material, which is gonna be loving incredible if true.

I didn't really care for Omni at all at first, but that album has seriously grown on me. I dig most of the tracks on it now. And if the whole new album is like that one song in the trailer, it's gonna blow Omni away.

I was a bit late on the Minus the Bear bandwagon (discovered them shortly before the release of OMNI) and this preview is just driving me nuts. They're one of those bands where I'm obsessed with every single bit of material, which isn't that common for me.

Also, seeing them perform Highly Refined Pirates in its entirety was just about the greatest thing.
