3dCosby - Satans Secret (2012)

My great state of New York is home to many amazing musical acts. In the realm of Math Rock the number only seems to be growing. 3dCosby are an interesting case when it comes to the typical smash and grab math we post here. Sure certain passages and songs can make the claim but there is a much stronger progressive vibe running through these pieces. It is to the duo's credit that they manage to internalize a lot of loved genre's into very much there own deal. Dont like one song? well chances are there will be something for you as these guys seem incredibly comfortable bouncing back and forth on whim. Check er ut.


Russian Blue - Etiquette EP (2012)

Some really good UK based math rock with equal parts indie rock lovins. Vocals are plentiful and add to the proceedings. Nice breakdowns and some curves thrown in for the ADD crowd (myself included) Solid stuff here peepsis.


Deer Legs - Demo

Strong willed demo as it is this three piece from Chicago busts out of the gates with some promising tunes. Large levels of instrumentality. Very excited to hear the final products of these sketches :)

Johnny Foreigner - Names

Apologies fellows and felletes as I have not been so active on the swords but fear not...

Johnny Foreigner are an excellent english band that are high energy rock with lots of interesting twists. No tapping heroic bouts here but there are always a heaping helping of fantastic vocals (boy girl at that). Please check these three tracks out and certainly explore the rest.

Ten Past Seven

These guys are frickin awesome!! i cant believe i forgot to post them before!? went to see them play last night....hadn't seen them play in a few years. they still have bucket loads of energy!!

Ten Past Seven are a three-piece instrumental shower from Kerry. In 2006 they released their debut album "Shut Up Your Face" on Out On A Limb Records. 2007 saw the band climb Carrantuohill (Irelands tallest mountain) and release the split 7" with Los Langeros "The Highest Bands In Ireland". Over the last few years they've toured Ireland extensively, played support to their heros and made jaunts overseas.
Their latest EP, ‘Bothar Buí’ (2010) very much reflects how a young band chose not to remain static but to constantly evolve and move forward. The title track features vocals by Katie Kim as well as remixed tracks by Kevin Blake, Toby Kaar and Molotov Ape and Laura Sheeran. However, this is not just about the sound; ‘Bothar Buí’ has been produced with a limited run of 100 pieces of slate each imprinted with an individual image. The are constantly developing new ideas and ways to deliver their music without the constraints of convention and finding alternative ways to carry their sound and concepts through to different audiences.
