    Anybody else listen to math rock?

    It's ridiculously cool. All the crazy time signatures contrast with eachother beautifully and make rhythmic hypnotic music.

    Why, yes it is!

    You have to be in the mood for it. This is probably the most hip-hop related math rock group, (lol) Battles. Always on the look for more. You have to be a bit of a blog whore to keep up with math rock. Guilty as charged.

    Glad you guys put up some other examples besides Minus The Bear. That's all I'm really familiar with in that genre. Good stuff.

    I definitely agree you have to be in the mood. For hip-hop instrumental music I like to listen to like Nujabes, Ayur, Fat Jon, Shing02, Kondor, Blazo, etc. That mellow mood stuff.

    Math rock is great though when you want some crazy magical tunes. It's so spastic yet harmonious!

    Minus The Bear is kinda the default math rock group, but they are well deserved and have some GREAT tunes.

    If you guys know The Fall Of Troy, it's a math rock/hardcore band. Great stuff if you like it a little heavier.



    I'm surprised this thread even got comments! I figured this would rot to death in the internet graveyard. Glad I'm not the only one!

    I love these type of riffs.

    Good stuff. It hadn't even dawned on me that Meshuggah fell under this category.

    Yeah, Meshuggah does a lot of insane stuff with time signatures and polyrhythms.

    check out some Don Caballero ("American Don" is normally the first song i suggest), Hella (their earlier stuff when they were just a two piece), or Ruins (the Japanese band).

    those are some of my favorite math rock bands right off the top of my head.
