Artist: Pile Album: Special Snowflakes / Mama’s Lipstick Genre: Post-punk, rock & roll, indie rock Label: Exploding in Sound Records The burned-out psychedelic grunge of Dripping still has its edge.

Oculesics And Autocatalytica Announce Master Egg Tour

Two of New England’s (and, uh, New York City’s) finest progressive acts are heading out on tour together. Prog-metal act Autocatalytica (featuring Emmett Ceglia on drums, who you may recall as the handsome devil from Sugar Bomb!) and math-experimental band Oculesics (who used to feature Ceglia on drums, but that’s besides the point) are covering […]

Legendary math rock pioneers Piglet successfully funded their own Kickstarter campaign earlier today, which featured a handful of limited prints of their releases.

Giraffes? Giraffes! And Goddard Head Out On Skeletour

Math rockers Giraffes? Giraffes! and alternative rockers Goddard have shared one of the coolest looking vinyl splits we’ve ever seen (see here). Soon they’ll be going on tour together, with G?G! having some dates alone first. The tour will be the furthest Goddard has traveled from home; it’s harder to say that about G?G!, as […]

Giraffes? Giraffes! And Goddard Doing A Split 10″

Math rock band Giraffes? Giraffes!, who you may best remember as the soundtrack to the Do It Together trailer, haven’t had a new release since 2011’s Pink Magik. Now, they’ll be doing a split with slightly-more-normal rock band Goddard. Goddard was the band to announce it, doing so through a casual “Happy New Year” Facebook post. […]
