Rarely does music get plopped into my lap that makes me truly excited. When I opened my email to find a bandcamp link to Peru based Kinder, I was floored. This is a perfect amalgamation of indie rock, experimental, electronic and math elements. Flawlessly executed and jammed tight with little room for another instrument to even play a note in edge wise. Its high energy rarely lets up and even then it seethes with such forward movement you wait on the edge of your chair to see where its going to take you next.

Heres the skinny. 2 bass guitars and programmed drums playing instrumental post rock math metal noise gaze. With some very excellent production it seriously sounds like those bass guitars are going to invade your chest cavity. The shoe-gaze element gives it a nice counter balance to the unfolding metalesque songs. CHECK IT.
Bear Baiting EP

Fairly new Scottish 4 piece that plays an interesting mix of vocal led alt. indie mathish pop? Again just one of those things that you've gotta taste and see. The EP covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time and always seems to head in some very interesting directions. Some of the vocal melodies and harmonies are pretty left field but can also be stunningly beautiful in another moment. Sounds a bit like Pharaohs if they were a bit less happy and never stayed in one place for too long in a song? I dont know tough call they are truly their own beast. I have to say though that I was immediately struck by these guys on first listen and it honestly just keeps getting better with each listen. If this isn't on your radar.....lets just say it needs to be.
