Faraquet - The View from This Tower

For such limited material Faraquet has left a lasting stamp on the state of math-rock even today. Active in the late 90's most of the members are now a part of the band Medications. "The View from This Tower" remains a staple in any math-heads go to albums. Certainly not a bullet proof release by any means its strength lies in the mix of excellent vocals with razor sharp rhythms.

  1. reminds me a lot of Sweetthieves. they put out a few albums but never did any touring. then they broke up. their albums rule though. the first one was called "view from a glass tower." pretty amazing considering how similar the bands sound. http://www.sweetthieves.com/
