Is it still okay to publicly say that you like math rock? After the term has been pretty much watered down as a description of every band that isn’t completely straightforward and includes multiple guitars with rhythmic figures I guess no one really cares about it anymore. But if you do, there are still some good bands hiding out there, and think I’ve found a pretty good one. They’re called Maps & Atlases, they’re sailing out from Chicago to conquer the world and very conveniently they are releasing a new EP called You And Me And The Mountain. You don’t have to worry about things getting to blip-blop’ish, this one is light math, and the time signature might even allow a dance move although it might be a bit awkward.
and math on Myspace. But still, is math rock still relevant in any way and is it still possible to find anyone who cares if you don’t play in 4/4?
