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.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
