Being a young band… by band standards… because we’re, like, old.
Or at least middle age, when it comes to musicians… we decided to take stock of what awaited us starting off in Boston.
Beings fans of math rock and most creative musics we found ourselves among great company in the Boston area.
Here are five math rock bands from Boston-ish that you should know about, and who we greatly enjoy…in no particular order. Our resident drummer Tim, (also the drummer for the band DOZE) had a show with one of the bands on our list, Ghosts of Sailors at Sea. They just released a killer new album that can be heard below.
1. Ghosts of Sailors at Sea
2. Giraffes? Giraffes!
A lovely duo like ourselves, we have a keen affinity for Giraffes? Giraffes!
Boston heroes, in our humble opinion.
So fresh, so great, and with vocals!
5. Job Creators
You knew we were going to include ourselves! It’s called marketing. MARKETING baby.
A rich tradition, kinda
We like math rock. Do other people? It’s hard to tell, sometimes. Sometimes, math rock can seem like, what, the instrumental band’s answer to electronica. Organized chaos. Whatever it is, it’s good.
What do you think? Got any favorite Boston math rock bands?
