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.

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.

This is the 29th episode of our podcast, in which we discuss Blind Girls, Cloudburst, Inertia, Great Falls, The Air Turned to Acid, revisit Potion, and interview the homie Quade Ross (Car Made of Glass, Potion, TEBOTJF, Antarctica, et al).
Just wanted to share with you that Mathcore Index is now 10 years old. We want to thank you all so much for your support, especially those of you who’ve been here since the beginning, as we continue to grow and expand our content. Mathcore Index was quite accidentally started by Simon Richard in 2009 as he was in the process of creating a MySpace profile for a new band: after accidentally creating a standard profile as opposed to an “artist” one, he decided to leave it up as way of sharing music and to help document the growing scene. Since then, we’ve been doing our best to bring you compilations, exclusive premieres, interviews, and more recently our podcast and Mathcore Index Fest, which will hopefully become an annual event. Thank you so much for supporting underground music. We love you all. -Mathcore Index (Christian, Simon, Carson, Levi, Sidd, Jay, and Kate) /// original logo and banner by Keith Carlson, art by Karl Frandsen.
