PLOKK - A + B
PLOKK are a 5 piece from Hamburg. (EDIT: 3 piece ((even more impressive)) )
PLOKK are freaking amazing
Just listen to the facts. This is a franken beast that makes so much sense when you hear it. Depending on the moment you might catch them in the middle of some kind of quasi dissonant guitar battle that sounds like its about to fall apart. Two seconds later you could be thrashing to an all out alternative metal riff. It never turns out sounding at odds with itself though and flows organically on its way. The band itself says "intelligent krautrock" which I suppose you could tack in there. A better idea as far as other bands go would be a more disjointed and less jazzy version of Fago. Sepia, a wonderful comparison in my opinion. So i know i must say this a lot but if you enjoy math rock in any of its aspects this is not something you can pass by. Don't even think about it.
