All of Them Witches – “Breathers Vs. Drivers” – [Advanced Alternative]

Angular,arithmetic tendencies from duo Phillip Freedenberg on guitar/bass and Cameron Rogers on drums (this guy holds the fort down), out of Buffalo New York. With only two musicians, this music holds a surprisingly manageable yet always intriguing quality of sound, which never ceases to demand attentiveness. This is math rock with the expected math rock style ADD. That is, odd time signatures, constant changes in meter, syncopation, stop and start rhythms and of course, fully instrumental (with the exception of a few brief vocal samples). This airs on the more tangible side of the math rock spectrum. It sounds calculated and composed as opposed to improvised, and never really gets too sporadic or abrasive. The music here is quite linear and relatively cohesive, or rather just cohesive enough. Pleasing, yet still intriguing, with harmonic combinations just abnormal enough to make you tilt your head. These tracks are like little melodic day dreams, spinning and floating and getting a bit out there at times. This sounds like it could be the sound track to super super mario on even more drugs..not to say that its terribly psychedelic, but give it a spin and you’ll see what I mean. -Surfer Rosa
