Chinook - EP

In the time between this post and now I have realized a few interesting things concerning Chinook's EP. This EP has grown on me like a spreading wild fire. The melodies have latched into my brain in such a fashion that has surpassed what I initially gave them credit for. Those guitar's seriously never waste a moment. The drums almost steal the show as well. While not altogether unconventional certainly both convey a sense of fun and serious ass rocking that seems to be lacking in a lot of post rock. I frequently blast this very loudly in my car while air drumming around town a favorite past time of mine. It's pretty much bullshit that more people aren't talking about these guys. Please if you didn't the first time around do yourself the pleasure.

Now we are in about the same realm of math as far as feeling but this Michigan quartet are far more melodic than my previous post. Some of the breakdowns here are really brilliant for math rock this driving. Its something that really hits a chord emotionally speaking so this is not something anyone should be going out of town for. Extremely well crafted indie rock tinged math. Very nicely produced as well which for intricate rock music gives you that much of a leg up.


  1. Holy fuck! Came on here for Man Ray, super exciting to see my favorite MI melody makers on a rad math-rock blog. A 4-piece in live settings, Chinook are cousins Tyler Grove (guitars) and Cameron Macintosh (drums) in-studio. Tyler records untold layers of guitars to weave ultra-webs of awesome sounds. They are slowly working on a new self-recorded full length! Also check out Ypsilanti math maniacs Lawless Carver, math-pop suckers Supercollider, and lo-fi looper Orphanage for more awesome MI jams. - Aa

  2. Thats great info that I wasn't even aware of as to the live and studio set up! I was just speaking with Tyler last week about upcoming plans for the new release and I have to say I am very jazzed up as well.

    I will have to check out those groups as well as im not familiar. Thanks for stopping by and if your interested we have a pretty active facebook group as well.
