Midair - Faceache (2012)
Math rock from down south via Richmond Virginia. Midair play an incredibly self assured blend of math rock with a bit of post-hardcore and post-rock leanings. Vocals? yea some of those happen. But these guys have some serious ideas ripping through these songs. Nothing incredibly odd or angular but just great dual guitar interplay with the drums. Some pretty memorable melodic lines as well, thats something I can always get behind. The great thing at least to my ears is that none of this sounds recycled. Not to only that but their is an ambiguity in the play style that could easily trick me into thinking this could have come from years ago. Strong thumbs up on these hands from this guy. Give em some love.
