Piglet - Lava Land






In math rock circles Piglets only release "Lava Land" is considered a modern classic. Written about in as many blogs as you could think of it has totally exhausted any insightful added commentary on the currently split up group. no lyrics, no loops and three members might not sound like much but its these minimal elements that make it more special than their myriad contemporaries. Structurally you would be hard pressed to find better with a command of dynamics of any of the new ilk getting passed off as complex math rock. Which seems to be the problem in todays current climate, there always seems to be an element missing. Throughout Lava Land each member is constantly at war with one another for space within the song yet with a cohesion that creates a striking juxtapose. As a hint to their surprising influence our new vanguard of math groups name check Piglet right along side the greats (Don Cab, Volta Do Mar, Pele.....ect.) If you've never heard then please see what the fuss is about.
