Duck. Little Brother, Duck! - Survival Is Not A Workout
Portland based math rock quartet with a dual guitar attack that is equally indebted to post hardcore as math rock. Some would say its a bit emo but I dont think thats a fair tag more in feeling than anything else. The vocals help tie things together as things can get a little carried away. When the guitarists are trying to be melodic they succeed in spades but when things get a bit crowded its hard to gain a feel. It should be noted also that the drummer rips it up hard. Aside from some minor quibbles this is a great release for a fairly new group. Its worth the look see trust me.
