Alban B. Clay (2014) – The Slaughterhouse 5
tags: alternative, rock, art rock, alternative pop, alternative rock, death pop, math pop, math rock
Tim Brown (Icarus the Owl) included this in his Top 10 list but I didn’t really give it as good of a listen as I should have right of the bat. He messaged me telling me to listen to this and that I should do a Bandcamp Adventures post on whatever niche it was (I went with math pop). After giving it a real listen, I can’t really stop listening to anything else. This is a great concept album. It’s just a great album period. Listen to it. Please?

So there’s only one song for this EP up (at the time of posting), but it was fucking perfect. Really poppy vocals over some rad instrumental tracks that just scream Math Rock!

Half Moon – Echoscape
tags: alternative, brooklyn, fingerstyle, indie folk, math folk, math pop, math rock, post rock, singer-songwriter
This is a really cool folky/mathy release. There’s a mix between Japanese and English vocals (which is awesome). The instrumentals manage to convey as much emotion as the vocals. Check it out for sure.

Night Idea – Audiotree Live – Night Idea
tags: rock, indie, indie prog, math pop, math rock, progressive
So it’s just their audiotree session, but I think the best indicator of a band is they live performances right? And this one blew me away. Definitely check out this band (and their older releases).

They recorded this in a room with two microphones and captured the vibe perfectly. I definitely wasn’t expecting to be as floored as I was with this release. Give it a listen, you won’t regret it.

Saint Cloud, Florida
tags: acoustic, acoustic pop, emo, emo pop, indie folk, indie pop, lofi, math pop
I’m always a sucker for acoustic music. The vocals are really rad too. And it’s lofi (but not the kind of lofi that makes my ears hate me).
