So hopefully this episode won't get lost in all the ruckus that the Mueller report has been delivered to the AG, but what the hell, I was half way through recording it when that news dropped, so here you go anyway. My voice is a little sketchy, but it's still a head swiveler, with lots of sharp style pivots and genre changes, but that's what makes it fun, right? Right?

While the subgenre of math rock has a lot of people arguing about what it is and isn't, I decided to do a scene show, throwing my hat into the ring. So over about 3 hours, as we do in all of our scene shows, I'll walk you through what I think forms the core of a math rock band/song, talk about the origins of the scene including proto math rockers, explore some of the key players in the scene, talk a bit about how easily bands can be both a math rock band and a post-rock band, and give little waves to the subsubgenres of math metal and mathcore. 

As with all scene shows, I claim no sense of authority, simply remind you I'm a guy who does his homework, and knows enough to be dangerous.

So let's cover math rock!

I can't watch the damn television any more. The news is going to make me throw something at it if I'm not careful. I'd like Nixon II: Electric Bugaloo to be over now rather than the additional 6-12 months it's gonna take for this mess to blow over, and that's if we're lucky! Anyway, here's this week's show, full of all sorts of manic sprinkles.

Next week, assuming my head doesn't explode, will be a scene show on math rock, by request.
