Quote From "Circling The Drain" [ Duck. Little Brother, Duck! ] are a math rock (mostly instrumental) and emo band that really brings out the [ Faraquet ] and [ Piglet ] influences in their instrumentals. The vocals are amazingly reminiscent to noodley emo and post-hardcore bands of the 90's. The riffs in this are so intricate and have a truly great math rock feel to them, whereas their contemporaries fail and lack originality.

I don't know how many mathy bands I have listened to that just let me down with boredom... [ DLBD ] is not one of those bands. Now, I know that the song lengths may get in the way of some impatient listeners, but if you can leave the next button alone you will be in for a melodic and atmospheric treat.

The fact that this bands instrumentals can create visions in my mind, accompanied by soothing vocals, makes this album truly wonderful. Looking for something great in terms of modern math rock? I think you may have found it. Give these guys a listen and promote them as much as possible.

Get the picture guys you in for a SUPER TREAT here.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
