Site migration

The time has come to finally migrate to a slightly less antiquated platform. Blogger has served us well for the past 3 odd years*, but in the coming weeks posts will stop appearing here as we redirect traffic to our new website.

*EDIT: 10 years if you count the OLD website.

For the first time in about 18 months, we have shirts again. The first 50 sold out quietly in 3 days, so we went ahead and printed another 50 of our original logo design on black Gildan cotton t-shits.

Delta Sleep: Interview + Photo Essay

Delta Sleep are one of the most profoundly moving bands I have discovered in recent years, quickly becoming one of my favorite acts in math rock and at large, and back in November we had the honor of meeting them for a chat ahead of their performance at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco.

Mathcast: Photo Essay

We've been doing our companion podcast, Mathcast, for a little over 2 years now. It is both a labor of love and joyful monthly ritual in which we discuss some of brightest artists in extreme and underground music, and last September our good friend and photographer, Vincent Courtoy, sat in on a recording session to capture that joy.

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Needle Play - "Doomster Baby"

Needle Play are a mathcore band based out of Boston, Massachusetts. Formed in late 2017, the band was originally featured on episode 23 of our podcast before seeing a slight lineup change with the addition of pianist Jonathan Jasperse and vocalist Tyler Tremblay, bassist and backing vocalist of MouthBreather, who both add exciting new energy to this already promising project. Tremblay's time in MouthBreather has obviously paid off, and it's clear by this raw vocal performance that he is equally comfortable with the role of front-man. Needle Play also further play to their already jazzcore leaning tenancies with the addition of piano accompaniment, and today we have the pleasure of bringing you the first single from their debut album, "Cruel Spring," which certainly highlights that. Fans of mathcore stalwarts, The Number Twelve Looks You, and next-gen mathcore darlings, like NoiSays, which also feature abundant jazzy interludes and off the wall time changes, will be all over this.

"Cruel Spring" is out April 9th via Bandcamp
