Pop Math Rock
This sadly defunct Math Rock group by way of Oneonta NY in their short span left a fairly large mark. What is unique about this group is that they blend the stylings of highly tech. musicianship with pop hooks. They can be ridiculously fast traversing through time signatures and equally capable of slower more chilled out passages as well. Vocals are spread out very nicely and lyrics can be a little odd but surprisingly memorable. These guys toured with and are friends with one of my favorite groups in the area Zona Mexicana. Machismo have currently split into two groups, Cattle Drums and Dan Drake Ensemble.
